FO Fiberglass Pump Strainers

Fo Fiberglass Pump

Zoos, Pools, Aquariums, Waterparks and Fountain Applications

Swimming Pool Strainer Housings are fiberglass reinforced plastic construction, pressure tested to 50 PSI. Features include : Isophthalic fiberglass resin, quick opening latches, see thru lid, 316 stainless steel v-wire basket with 3/16 square holes and 62% open area. Many alternate basket materials and opening types ( perforations) are available. For seawater service (as opposed to pool water with salt added for chlorine generation or aquariums) we suggest duplex stainless steelĀ  (2205 alloy) or hastalloy. Strainers are supplied with flanged connections drilled to 150 lb. ANSI standard.

Fiberglass Pump Strainers for Corrosive, Chemical Resistant Industrial Application

The basic design and configuration of our strainers can be upgraded for use in higher temperature, pressure and corrosive environments. Premium vinyester resins are suitable for up to 260 F fluids. Extreme variations from acid to alkali are easily handled. Bolted and gasketed fiberglass lids are used for higher temperature and pressure applications. Baskets are available in duplex stainless steel, monel, hastalloy and titanium. Numerous perforation configurations are available.

Strainers are supplied with flanged connections FO Flow Diagramdrilled to 150 lb. ANSI standard.

    The FO (Full-Outlet) Series basket chamber has a large open area to allow water flow all through the basket, minimizing pressure loss and maximizing time between cleaning.  This flow pattern utilizes more basket area so that debris does not plug up in a circular area at the exit of the pipe
