Eaton MCS 1500 High Flow Mechanically Cleaned Strainers are engineered specifically to help conserve valuable process water while protecting costly processing equipment from debris.  It offers minimal purge volumes in fresh water applications, allowing you to save on the cost of make up liquids, chemical treatment and heating energy.

Featuring fast cleaning magnetically coupled actuation, the design offers an optimized configuration to help improve and reduce costly maintenance and down time. In addition, this actuation method eliminates the need for lid-thru holes and their associated seals.

Designed to handle fresh water from treated sources, the High Flow MCS-1500 addresses the challenges water filtration can bring to industrial manufacturing.

Eaton’s MCS-1500 is perfect for high-capacity straining needs. Its magnetically coupled actuation eliminates the need for dynamic seals. This technology provides quick and easy access for maintenance, reduces potential leaks, and requires few moving parts while providing a long service life.
