At Hunt Valve, our rugged strainers can withstand the severe-duty cycles of the industrial descale systems in steel mills. These high-pressure devices are designed to avoid the plugging of descaling spray nozzles, resulting in scrap product and profit loss due to surface quality defects such as scale streaks. Strainers placed in the line with the descaling valve prevent any foreign material that’s large enough to be harmful from reaching the spray nozzles.
Hunt Valve’s strainers are also used to protect the internal parts of the operating valves. All foreign particles filtered out of the stream of water passing through the strainer are stopped by the grooved rings and collect outside the strainer basket. The basket can be cleaned by removing it from the housing and spraying a jet of compressed air between the rings.
