Self-Cleaning Strainers


As a leading provider of fluid straining systems, Hellan Strainers remove all types of solids (such as algae, zebra mussels, sand, grit, debris, machine cutting chips, etc.) from various fluids. They are extremely popular due to their reliability, efficient operation and cost savings. Instead of trapping solids like conventional basket strainers (which necessitate frequent basket removal for cleaning), the Hellan Strainer discharges solids from the flow without disassembly. This reduces operational and maintenance costs and permits continuous flow of fluids. 

Hellan Strainers are cast in sizes from 1 1/2″ to 20″ and fabricated in larger sizes. The nature of the fluid to be strained determines the material of the casting. Cast iron models are most common for fresh water applications. Cast steel can be used for higher pressure or where water hammer occurs. Stainless steel is used for highly corrosive fluids and bronze is used for seawater applications. Since the degree of straining required differs widely by application, a broad selection of perforated metal screen sizes are offered, as well as screens utilizing fine wedgewire filtration.
