Plastic Basket Strainers

Chemically Resistant Heavy-Duty Industrial Basket Strainers

For larger industrial applications, Simtech offers a line of heavy-duty fiberglass reinforced simplex and duplex basket strainers to stand up to the harshest conditions of service and plant environments.  The BST (simplex) and BSD (duplex) series is an industrial-grade strainer – not suitable for pools – that is designed for strength and corrosion-resistance at higher temperatures and pressures than typical plastic basket strainers. 
Our design utilizes a composite laminate construction for strainer bodies and components to provide structural strength and optimize chemical resistance. The thermoplastic liner pipe is over-wrapped with an FRP reinforcement stratum and finished with a resin gel coat. 
Chemical resistance is maintained by providing all wetted surfaces in the material of your choice: PVC, CPVC, PP or PVDF.  Available in both single basket (simplex) or double basket (duplex) configurations in sizes from 3” to 24”.  
Features include:
  • Corrosion resistant materials eliminate the need for expensive exotic metals
  • Accessible top cover design makes inline maintenance easy
  • IPA standard perforations (custom perforations also available) 
  • Stainless steel mesh basket
  • Engineered for the lowest practical pressure drop through strainer
  • Duplex strainer design eliminates any down time.
  • Visual Pressure differential gauges available
  • Pressure switches with audible & visual alarms
  • Pressure switches with contact closure to operate valves, pumps and other equipment
  • Pneumatic or Electric valve automation
