Viking Pump Simplex LidEase Basket Strainers
- States: GA, NC, SC, TN
- Summary: Protect pipelines, pumps and downstream systems by preventing solids or foreign materials from entering the pump. Their low cost relative to your equipment costs make inline strainers a "must-have" to protect all your process equipment.
- Industry / Applications
No pump is complete without an inline strainer to protect your process equipment by removing unwanted contaminants from fluid. Inline Strainers help reduce your maintenance costs and reduce your downtime. When foreign objects enter the production pipeline such as nails, bolts, tools, slag, rodents, birds and rocks, the results can be catastrophic. Even fine particles can create unnecessary wear on your pumps. Protect your process equipment systems by installing a pipeline strainer.

Process filtration systems are designed to clean and treat substances like water, chemicals, and gases in most processing applications from sanitary to heavy industrial. These filtration systems form an important part of most industrial processes, in applications like pharmaceutical, chemicals and coatings, food and beverage, water treatment, oil and gas, and more. A well designed and maintained filtration system reduces maintenance costs and improves process efficiency.
Each industrial filtration system is designed according to the properties of the material and the contaminants (or by products) that are being removed, as well as the process needs. Filtration solutions may range from a basket strainer that can remove products as small as 40 µm (microns) or depth filters that can filter down to .1 µm. The ideal filtration solution also depends on whether the process can be interrupted to change or clean filters, and whether automatic cleaning is necessary. The design and quality of the filtration system is essential to protect downstream equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, traps, valves and filters from damage due to contamination.
