Temporary Pipeline Strainers
Industrial Screen manufacturers temporary pipeline strainers in three styles; cone, basket or plate strainers. These temporary pipeline screens are an economical and efficient alternative to inline Y or basket strainers and a cost-effective solution for startup applications.
Industrial Screen and Maintenance (ISM) fabricates temporary cone, basket and plate strainers from heavy gauge perforated plate with punched hole patterns designed to catch debris during start-up in pipelines. They can be customized with or without stainless wire mesh to filter out even the smallest of particles. We offer a large variety of mesh sizes, from 8 mesh up to 400 mesh. Depending on the direction of the flow, the wire mesh can be added to the inside or outside of the basket or conical temporary strainer. All mesh is added to the outer area if not specified. Temporary conical or basket strainers can be manufactured to any length, diameter from carbon steel or any stainless grade. Our standard lengths offered are 100%, 150%, 200% or 300%, custom lengths are available upon request. This refers to the open area of the cone or basket to the cross section of the inlet pipe.
These inline pre−filter conical screens require no modification to your current piping structure and can be cleaned for reuse. Made with a stainless or mild steel punch plate core and available with wire mesh size from a ¼” to 50 micron opening, they effectively stop damage from particulates and contaminants. Basket Strainers are fabricated shorter in length than the temporary cone styles, allowing for more open area and higher flow taking up less pipe length. Temporary plate strainers are available for low pressure applications, can be fabricated with or without wire mesh. The conical strainer typically works better for higher-pressure applications due to the larger open area. We can customize you screen with extra supports and reinforcement rings for heavy load and high-pressure applications.
All screens are manufactured from 100% traceable materials. USA Material certifications available upon request. Please make sure to specify when ordering. Most common sizes IN STOCK and ship same day. Custom sizes and lengths available within 1-7 business days. As a full service CNC Machine shop with onsite engineers, ISM has been the industry leader since 1969.
