Caleffi announced the expansion of the 128 Series union Y-strainers that are ideally suited for use in hot water recirculation or hydronic systems. Constructed of DZR low-lead brass bodies, the 128 Series Y-strainer has dual union connections for 1/2”, 1/4” and 1” pipe sizes and tailpiece connections in sweat, NPT, press, F1960 PEX expansion and F1807 PEX crimp. The Y-strainer comes with factory-installed integral PT ports that allow quick verification of pressure drop across the strainer. The easy to remove strainer cap includes a plug for installation of a field-provided blowdown valve.
