Conical strainers are designed for 'temporary' or
short periods of operation, for example during
commissioning and initial start-up periods of new
or reconditioned process lines to remove any coarse
debris such as rags, welding rods, pipe scale, rust etc
accidentally or unavoidably present within the system.
After a nominal period of operation Conical Strainers
are usually replaced with a permanent strainer of
fine filtration. (Y-Type Strainers or Basket Strainers).
