Automatic Industrial Strainers

Design Definition: Automatic strainers sometimes referred to as self-cleaning or Backwashing Strainers are designed for applications that require continuous operation. A primary reason to use automatic strainers is for high solids loading that would otherwise require frequent basket cleaning. Higher flow rate applications require larger baskets, which can be heavy and a burden to remove and clean. Automatic strainers eliminate the manual process of monitoring and cleaning baskets.

Ideally suited for hazardous, explosive, remote, or nuclear applications.

Customization: Tate Andale is a build-to-order factory so it is easy for us to provide semi- custom solutions using our standard industrial strainers, filters, and valves as the base platform. When a semi-custom solution will not solve the problem, our skilled team of engineers is ready to design a custom solution for your toughest industrial fluid-control challenge.
