Viking Pump Inline Strainers

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. They protect pipelines, pumping 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" item in your process equipment systems to protect pumps, flow meters, valves, heat exchangers, boilers, filters, spray nozzles, cooling towers, burners and more.

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.
