Eaton 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers

Eaton 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers

Model 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers are ideal for applications that demand continuous flow and simplified maintenance in industrial, sewage, and water treatment processes.

These strainers are designed for the continuous removal of entrained solids from liquids in pipeline systems. With an automated control system monitoring the strainer operation, cleaning is accomplished by an integral backwash system. A small portion of the screen element is isolated and cleaned by reverse flow while the remaining screen area continues to strain-providing uninterrupted flow. This efficient design uses only a small amount of the liquid being strained to carry debris away from the strainer element.
