The Model KR is a cast iron continuous backflushing self-cleaning strainer. Featuring a rotating stainless steel backwash arm that is driven by an electric motor, the strainer is designed for installations which will be unattended for extended periods of time. Utilizing a stainless steel wedgewire straining element, the Model KR has a high straining ratio for a normally sized industrial strainer.
When configured for automatic intermittent backflushing—which also reduces backwash effluent—the Model KR allows longer periods between backflushing, minimizing operating costs.The wedgewire element also features a reverse wound design that prevents lodging of debris in the element, and creates a vortex during backflush for more efficient backflush operation. The Model KR is the rugged, longlife, efficient self-cleaning strainer of choice.
Available for pipelines from 3”-36”.
