MDM offers a selection of non-metallic Fluidtrol strainers for aquatics, general water and industrial applications. The standard strainers feature a unique seamless cast design that can be customized for Genesys® pump applications requiring integral access ports and FTP stands.
These basket strainers are available in corrosion-resistant plastics such as PVC, CPC, PP and PVDF, as well as fiberglass. All offer greater temperature resistance and chemical compatibility than traditional iron, steel and bronze strainers.
The standard Fluidtrol basket is stainless steel, constructed with 1/8” holes perforated on 3/16” staggered centers. As depicted above, baskets can be fabricated with a variety of hole sizes and open areas to meet varying design requirements.
Stainless baskets are a significant cost in the manufacture of an average-sized aquatic strainer. Baskets are the most costly replacement part for the end-user.
Fluidtrol strainer baskets are built to last. They are laser cut from heavy 12 guage stainless steel, making this potential weak spot super strong.
