A meter strainer is designed to protect cold water meters from the damaging effects of debris and foreign matter. This strainer improves the velocity profile of the water being metered and minimizes the effects of velocity distortion caused by upstream valves and fittings.

The AWWA recommends a strainer be used for all turbine and compound meter services 2" and above to screen debris from the line that could cause damage to the measuring element. They also recommend a minimum of 10 straight pipe diameters upstream and downstream prior to the meter for commercial and industrial applications where a strainer is not in service. However, by using a strainer these distances are reduced by half, making installation in tight spaces dramatically easier.

INSTALLATION: The strainer should be installed immediately upstream from the meter and following the flow direction indicated on the body.

CONSTRUCTION: Strainers consist of four basic components: The main housing, strainer cover, screen assembly and strainer cover gasket. The main housing and strainer cover are made of bronze or epoxy coated ductile cast iron. The strainer screen assembly is made of high strength stainless steel.

CONFORMANCE: These strainers comply with AWWA C701 and C702 standards. These Bronze Strainers comply with the lead-free provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act and are certified to NSF/ANSI Standards 61 and 372.
