The Eaton Model 72 simplex basket strainer is perfect for applications in which the line can be temporarily shut down for strainer basket cleaning or changeout. A reason for its popularity is the unusually large basket capacity. The free straining area with a perforated basket is a minimum of six times the cross sectional pipe area. The basket seats are precision machined to give a tight seal and prevent any material from bypassing the basket.
