T-type strainers, sometimes known as Bathtub strainers, are used as fixed strainers in 2′′ and larger bore lines. The pipe network on which they are mounted might be flanged or welded to them. Tee strainers are custom-built compound strainers that are used to remove foreign impurities from pipelines. Tee Style Strainers are a low-cost choice for straining large nominal bores. T-type strainers can be installed in either vertical or horizontal pipes, with the discharge flowing down into the basket in the vertical position. The branch connection is situated on the side for side access or, alternatively, on the top for top access in the horizontal placement. T Strainers are restricted to course filtration due to the way the basket is placed within the T will encourage fluid to flow through the runner bar system.
Tee strainers are usually provided with a variety of graduated filtration standards (fine to coarse or vice versa) to ensure that the device performs at the required level of cleanliness when completely loaded. Tee strainers include either a screwed cover or a quick-opening cover for easy accessibility.
T-strainers are manufactured with pipes and plates rather than ordinary tees and flanges. Filter components are constructed of perforated stainless steel sheet metal or wire mesh supported by perforated sheet metal. T-type strainers are a low-cost option for filtering large nominal bores. This strainer is easy to install and requires little maintenance.
