Automatic Self Cleaning Strainers

Fabricated Self Cleaning Strainers

What Is an Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainer?

An automatic self-cleaning strainer is a fabricated strainer using an integrated set of valves to allow for backwashing of the filters. This removes the need for manual removal and cleaning of strainer filters. Our automatic self-cleaning strainers are essential in removing unwanted particles from water. They do this by measuring pressure drops across the strainer which triggers a cleaning process when pressure is too low.

Our self-cleaning strainers will save you money, time, maintenance, and energy. We create custom-fabricated self-cleaning industrial strainers to meet our clients’ needs.
