    what's in your system?

    The strainer can protect the boiler, valves and any component in the system from dirt and debris. older cast iron radiation systems are a good application.

    Also consider a dirt separator. They work to a smaller particle size and do not reduce the flow like a strainer does are it catches debris in the fluid stream.

    This slide shows how a strainer and a dirt separator work.

    I will be presenting a 1 hour dirt and air webinar for the RPA tomorrow at 7:00 CST.
