Micromold Products” basket strainers made of Kynar PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) provide higher capacity than Y-Strainers, capturing substantial undissolved solids and thereby extending the life of expensive downstream equipment and reducing downtime. The all-plastic FLUOR-O-SHIELD strainers are corrosion-resistant and enable higher operating temperatures (up to 300 F, 150 C), and cost less than lined steel or exotic metal units. The strainers remove suspended or waste solids from corrosive or high-purity fluid streams to prevent damage to sensitive downstream equipment such as pumps, valves, instruments, and/or spray nozzles. The strainers are impervious to UV radiation, meet FDA requirements, and provide high rigidity and resistance to creep under mechanical loads. Applications include chemical, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, paper and pulp, food and beverage, water treatment, and similar process industries. Sizes range from 1/8″ to three inches, with a wide variety of connections and mesh screens readily available for immediate delivery.
