Sterlco 18-Y Strainer Features:
The Sterlco 18-Y 3 Inch NPT Brass Wye Strainer is a sturdy red brass (steam bronze) casting. Standard units have 40-mesh brass wire screens. Available on special order with brazing connections instead of pipe threads. For special service requirements, both 20-Y and 18-Y strainers can be furnished with a wide variety of perforated metal and wire mesh strainer screens.
“Y” Strainers are used for pumps, control valves, traps or any other equipment controlling the flow of liquids or gases require proper protection with strainers for trouble-free operation. Sterlco® strainers are engineered for water or steam, and are adaptable for many other uses. Cleaning is accomplished by simply removing a pipe plug without disconnecting any piping. Or if it is desirable to clean without interrupting service, a blow-off valve can be connected to the cleanout opening.
