The simplex basket strainer is the most common basket strainer with one basket screen inside a strainer body. Installed in a pipeline with uni-directional flow. The simplex basket strainer is used in a wide variety of applications, and the purpose is to filter out large debris from going futher up the system. Protection of pumps is the main purpose but also for the avoidance of debris entering a system and causing blockages.

Sea strainers are the same as simplex basket strainers in that they filter raw water and large debris being sucked in by the marine water pump.

The basket strainer needs regular maintenance and should be emptied when flow is reducing. A differential pressure gauge will show a low pressure reading when the basket is full and needs cleaning out.  

We supply high end basket strainer products, with 316 stainless steel strainer body designs for corrosion resistance, also Duplex 2205 stainless steel body designs. 316 stainless steel body basket strainers are common with an internal basket manufactured from 316 stainless steel perforated sheet, to suit many aperture size requests.

The simplex basket strainer has less pressure loss than a Y strainer, less head loss than a Y strainer, a higher flow rate than a Y strainer, a larger volume and filtration area than a Y strainer, and is easier to clean than a Y strainer.
