As the name implies, a strainer helps screen out particulate matter in a piping system. Although steam traps get most of the glory, strainers also play an important role in the efficient operation of a well-designed system. Armstrong offers strainers in a wide choice of sizes and materials to meet most pipeline straining requirements. All of our strainers are made to Armstrong’s high standards and are guaranteed to be free from defects in workmanship or material. Armstrong Y-type strainers are available in cast iron, carbon steel, chrome-moly, forged steel, stainless steel and bronze. Connections come in screwed, socketweld and flanged configurations. Armstrong T-type strainers are available in stainless steel.
