Basket Strainers feature top removal of the screen. The screen is in the form of a basket, with a lifting handle, so that all particulate captured and retained by the screen can be easily removed for disposal. They are intended for applications where large amounts of solids particulate are expected and where the clean-out will be frequent. For easily flushable solids, a modified cone bottom basket can be tilted with automatic or manual blow-down through drain port.
This will allow clean-out without removal of the screen, and without interrupting the flow process.
