The ZS strainer is designed to protect control valves and pipelines from foreign matter and debris in the flow stream. Manufactured in corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the large-area Z plate is designed to provide smooth laminar flow, which is ideal for locations ahead of automatic control valves. The ZS strainer is supplied with flushing ports on both sides, along with an air bleed connection and connections across the screen for the installation of a differential pressure gauge if required.
