Types and Functions of Strainers

Strainers find their use as filters in separating solid particles from fluid flowing through a system or a pipeline. They can catch debris and dirt in a liquid which makes them very useful in plumbing scenarios. Plumbing components commonly include valves, engines, pumps, and nozzles, which can be severed affected by the presence of large solid dirt particles. Strainers effectively trap them and prevent expensive equipment from damage.

Strainers come in various shapes and sizes, with their names designed in accordance with their structures. They are mostly made of aluminum and copper which makes them suitable for use with water and makes them corrosion resistant. The most commonly used strainers are Y & Pot strainers. Pot strainers are also called basket strainers. Below are the functions of strainers based on their types:

  • Y Strainers: The most frequently used type of strainers. As its name suggests, it has a Y-shaped body, which ensures that it provides low resistance to fluid passage and lead to a low-pressure loss. This makes Y-strainers suitable for applications where the number of solid particles to be strained is less. This means it is less susceptible to being dirty and requires less cleaning. Hence it is used in pressurized pipelines, steam, liquid or gas, vacuum or suction situation.
  • Pot strainers:  Its design ensures that no interruption occurs in the system while cleaning the strainer by altering the flow of the fluid to a second strainer during the cleaning process. A system is in place to detect when the first pot or basket is full, so the flow is redirected to the second strainer and free the first pot for cleaning by the operator. Pot or basket strainers are used for applications involving strong chemical reactions and abrasives.

Some strainers come attached with ball valves. Ball valves are quarter turn valves, extremely sturdy and durable which sometimes makes them more desirable than globe or gate valves. But, it can only be used for on-off applications, and lack the regulatory features other valves have. Ball valve with strainer is more useful in fact, for its flow control traits with a particulate check.

As suppliers of strainers and industrial valves, we at SKG aim to bring the best quality standard products to market, from the best makers like Betaflo, NVR, Advance, and many more.

  • Best post-purchase service

Our chief products and some of their usage are the follows:

  • Y & Pot strainers
  • Check valves & Non-return valve
  • Hose Pipe, Rubber Bellows
  • Fire equipment – The Fire fighting equipments are the equipment designed to extinguish or put off fires or protect the user from the fire. this equipment is usually used by trained fire fighters, as well as untrained users at the scene of a fire breakage or similar unfateful situations. These are often built into a building’s infrastructure (such as a sprinkler system).
  • Strainers – The strainer plays a pivotal role in maintaining fluid circulation through the pump constantly. It prevents blocking of nozzles and provides optimal operation of the sprayer.
  • Gate & sluice valve – Sluice valve is a kind of valve which is opened by lifting a round or rectangular gate or a wedge which is out of the path of the fluid. It is because of their ability to cut through liquids, the gate valves are often used in the petroleum industry.
  • Hydrant Valve and Landing valve –  Hydrant Valves are the valves which are fitted on the post of hydrant stands. The Landing Valves are used for firefighting operations. It is offered on the riser in buildings. The Landing valves are mainly placed typically in the staircase landing for firefighters to have access easily. Landing valves is undoubtedly an important part of a hose system for firefighting. Hydrant Valve & Landing Valve both are the same type of important valve used for firefighting.

At SKG Pneumatics our industrial products are the ones made up of manufacturing materials and plants, machinery and any other component or goods used by other firms or industries. Our industrial designer’s brand partners can make innovative designs which are functional and affordable for one and all. We use quality industrial products, for which they can explore the design concepts.

So, do not think even twice before choosing us since we offer the best products at the best price.

Classifications of Valves According to Functions and Motions

When you are installing a piping system in your building or industry, here is some information provided by SKG Pneumatics that will help you to get the services accordingly. SKG is a one-stop for all types of industrial piping devices with a rugged quality.

Classification of valves according to functions

1. For isolation to the piping system – Gate Valves, Ball Valves, Plug Valve, Butterfly Valve, Diaphragm Valve etc are included.

2. For regulation  Globe valve, Butterfly Valve, Needle Valve, Ball Valve etc are included to provide regulation in the flow of the fluid in the piping system.

3. Safety Relief – Pressure Relief Valves, Vacuum Relief Valves are included.

4. Non Return Swing check valve, lift check valve are included.

Special purpose valves-multi port valve, float valves, foot valves, knife gate valve, knife gate valve are included for special types of works mostly done in a household or small piping system done for any buildings.

Classification of valves according to motion

1. Linear motion valves – These are the valves that have a stem sliding closure part like slat, plate or disc, or diaphragm which raise or lower the closure part by moving the handle or grip to the device. This comes with easy design, easy maintenance, versatility in sizes, pressure classes etc. These valves are slower in operation but are more accurate in shutting or opening the flow. SKG provides you with a series of valves functioning under motion like Gate, Globe, and Diaphragm valves etc

2. Rotary motion valves – Rotary valves include a closure part that rotates in the body and opens or shuts the flow when a lever attached is made to quarter turn. They come with larger pore size, cost-effective but limited in applications with pressure drops. SKG caters you all type of valves that comes with a rotary motion like Ball Valves, Butterfly Valves, and Plug Valves etc.

The SKG Pneumatics is catering the products that are needed by any type of piping system. They are incorporated in 2005 and have various partners that also cater the devices like an Advance valve, Zoloto valves, NVR Valves, Easyflex Valves and New age Fire fighting equipment. In this new age, firefighting equipment includes Flexible drops, RRL Hose, Sprinklers, Branch Pipe, Hose Reel Drum and Hose Pipe etc.  More of it SKG also deals in Rubber Bellows, that are designed to reduce the noise, vibration and absorb any thermal movements. These Rubber Bellows are vital to install in a piping system.
