Strainers (STR) are closed vessels that collect solid particles to be separated while passing a fluid through a removable screen. The screens can collect particles down to 0.001 inch in diameter. They can remove more than unwanted material. They can also remove wanted materials that can be used elsewhere or in other processes. You can find strainers upstream of sensitive equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, traps, valves and filters.
Strainers and filters are basically the same thing. A filter is a device that removes particles from a given liquid or gas. It includes a disposable medium for removing particles of specified micron sizes. Simply stated, a Strainer is also a filter; however, it uses a perforated plate or screen mesh to remove larger particles from a process stream. The major advantage of a Strainer is that it is reusable.
