The Model 570 Duplex Basket Strainer from Eaton protects system components in pipelines from 8 inches to 36 inches in size. The Model 570 has been designed so that the system flow never has to be shut down for strainer basket cleaning. A hand wheel operates a sliding gate that permits the flow to be switched between either of two straining chambers to permit one chamber to remain on-line, while baskets are removed from the out-of-service chamber for cleaning.
