Duplex strainers remove damage causing particulate matter from the process media, and never have to be shut down for cleaning. The Model 570 is a multi-basket strainer, providing four baskets in each of the two straining chambers for a total of eight per duplex strainer. This makes the Model 570 a very compact unit for its size with a low profile, ideal for tight installations where space is a problem.
The Eaton Model 570 Duplex Basket Strainer has been specifically designed to remove potential damage causing particles from large volumes of water and other process media (up to 30,000 gpm) efficiently and cost effectively. The strainer operates continuously and the pipeline flow never has to be shut down for strainer basket cleaning. Flow is switched from one basket chamber to the other by a sliding gate mechanism operated by hand wheels. The free floating valve disc mechanism moves easily and does not bind. The valve operating stem is fully enclosed, protecting it from the fluid flow.
