Our heavy-duty FT model strainers are constructed of FRP, PVC, and 316SS. These materials result in a product that is extremely corrosion resistant and built to last the life of any project. The standard basket is 18 Gauge 316SS, constructed with 1/8” holes perforated on 3/16” staggered centers. Baskets can be fabricated with a variety of hole sizes and open areas to meet varying design requirements. The C•Shell Basket Strainer (FT) offers greater temperature resistance and chemical compatibility than traditional iron, steel, and bronze strainers.
