Multi-Basket strainers are used in processes in which very high flow rates or very low-pressure differentials are required, and where high dirt contaminant levels exist.
The main advantage and great benefit of multi-basket strainers is the increased filtration area they provide. This minimises the fluid face velocity over the filtration media, which induces low-pressure differentials. The increased surface also provides increased dirt holding capacity. The other great benefit is that the baskets can be kept to a reasonable size and weight for handling.
This type of unit is used for pump suction applications where very low pressure differentials are required. Also where long interval periods between maintenance are required.
