fitting should not require the use of tools. Strainer cover joint faces shall be
machined.

i.

With the exception of clearance holes for fastenings, all covers shall be fitted

the SRD.

k.

Where shock mounting pads are specified, they shall be cast as an integral part

l.

An arrow shall be cast on the Strainer body to indicate direction of flow. Where
alternative methods of indicating flow are proposed they shall be referred to
WSA/MPS216 for approval.

m.

CORPORATE EXPERIENCE & KNOWLEDGE


Related Documents: BS EN 1982; BS 3072; DEF STAN 02-830 Part 1; DEF STAN
07-253 Part 1; DEF STAN 07-261 Parts 3, 4 and 5; see also Annex A.

5.1

General
a.

5.2

The two fundamental types of pipeline Strainers in current use and previously
used are the Basket Type and the Y-Type. Additionally, a straight-through
flow variant of the Basket Strainer would be specified for use within sea water
systems.

Basket Strainer
a.

Basket Strainers would generally be used where there is a requirement for


regular or frequent cleaning, because they hold considerably more entrapped
material and offer less pressure drop than Ytype Strainers.

b.

Because this type of Strainer would be fitted where cleaning often occurs, the
basket(s) would be made to be removed and replaced as simply as possible. A
yoke type cover would be suitable for smaller sizes where the Strainer cover
would be held down by a clamping yoke sturdy enough to hold full line pressure,
which could be quickly loosened or tightened by hand. In larger Strainers it
would be more appropriate to secure the cover at multiple points e.g. by using
swing bolts and butterflynuts.

c.

Basket Strainers would be installed upright and the basket lifted out from the
top. This imposes system design constraints requiring that the Strainer be
installed in a horizontal line with an adequate space envelope for basket
removal/replacement.

d.

Basket Strainers would be used in both Single and Double Element


applications.

e.

Systems would be configured to allow Single Element Strainers to be isolated


for basket cleaning.

f.

Figure 5.1 shows the functionality of a Single Element Strainer.

g.

Double Element Strainers would be appropriate where there is a requirement


to clean Strainer elements without interrupting the service in which the
Strainer is fitted. An example of a Double Element Strainer is shown in
Figure 5.2.

DEF STAN 02748 / ISSUE 2


(NES 748 )

5.3

Straight Through Flow Basket Strainer


a.

Straightthrough Flow Strainers, have low pressure drop characteristics and


are particularly suitable for applications such as main sea suction systems in
place of sludge/weed boxes.

b.

Straightthrough Flow Strainers are smaller and lighter than sludge/weed


boxes, taking up approximately half their weight and space. Pleated or
convoluted basket design would be employed to increase the straining area
while minimising basket size.

c.

An example of a Straightthrough Flow Strainer is shown in Figure 5.3.

Figure 5.3 Illustration of a Typical StraightThrough Flow Strainer


5.4

Y Type Strainer
a.

Ytype Strainers could be installed in either horizontal or vertical pipework or, if


required, an orientation in between. However, whichever configuration is used,
the Strainer would be installed with the screen down, so that entrapped
material could be collected efficiently.

b.

Ytype Strainers would only be used where the cleaning requirement is


infrequent.

c.

An example of a Ytype Strainer is shown at Figure 5.4.

12

DEF STAN 02748 / ISSUE 2


(NES 748 )

Figure 5.4 Illustration of a Typical Y-Type Strainer


5.5

Strainer Selection
a.

Size for size, Ytype Strainers offer less dirt holding capacity and a larger
pressure drop than basket Strainers.

b.

The open area ratio of a Strainer describes the amount of free open area of the
Strainer and Basket. It is the ratio of the open area through a clean Strainer
Basket to the cross sectional area of the pipeline. A basket Strainer should have
an open ratio of at least 4 : 1; anything less may cause an excessive pressure
drop.

c.

Manufacturers can assist in identifying the appropriate type of Strainer for a


particular application. It is important that operating medium viscosity,
acceptable particle size and pressure drop are taken into account. Additional
design data is available online from Strainer manufacturers.

d.

There are no industrywide standards for face to face dimensions for flanged
Strainers. Therefore, the Strainer from one manufacturer may not physically
fit into pipework designed for a different brand of Strainer.

e.

Table 5.1 indicates Strainers by type and size that have been codified and used
previously. The table is not exhaustive and additional information relating to
previous applications is available from WSA/MPS216.

f.

Table 5.2 lists materials previously found suitable for Strainers. The table is
not exhaustive and materials specified to equivalent or superior national or
international standards may be appropriate.
