EATON Model 510 Simplex Multi-Basket Strainers are unlike other large size simplex strainers because of its multi-basket design. Four strainer baskets strain the process media and give the strainer an extremely high dirt removal capability. The strainer protects system components such as flow meters, pumps, and spray nozzles.

EATON Model 510 Simplex Strainers are designed for larger piping systems having flow rates up to 40,000 gpm. Unlike other large size simplex strainers the EATON Model 510 has a multi-basket design. Four strainer baskets per unit strain the process media and give the strainer an extremely high dirt removal capability. This is an important consideration in larger size strainers that, because of their size and design, take longer basket leaning or change out. The longer the strainer stays in service between cleanings, the less expensive its operating costs.
To reduce the pressure loss to an absolute minimum the Model 510 has a straight through flow configuration. This is made possible by a unique basket design that incorporates a slanted top to permit straight through flow.
The use of four baskets, rather than one or two, helps to keep operating costs low because the over all size of each basket can be smaller. This means that basket cleaning is a one person job, there is no need for two or more operators, or lifting tackle, to remove the baskets. To make this job even easier and quicker the EATON Model 510 can be ordered with a special cover lifting davit with which the operator can raise the strainer cover and swing it out of the way for access to the strainer baskets. The four basket design provides an additional benefit as well…the centerline to bottom and centerline to top dimensions of the strainer are very short, creating a low-profile design that is ideally suited for installation in cramped quarters.
For large size piping systems with high flow rates the Model 510 offers significant advantages over ordinary large size strainers, advantages that will improve performance and reduce operating costs over the life of the strainer.
