The Thompson Strainer is patented stainless steel strainer used on a wide variety of industrial applications to remove solid particles from liquid systems. Our unique product has grown popular due to its patented, low-maintenance design, stainless steel construction, and exceptional efficiency.All models of the Thompson Strainer operate with less than a 1-PSI pressure loss at maximum flow when clean. This efficiency provides real energy savings when compared to strainer products that rely on energy consuming devices like spinners and torpedoes to give a comparable cleaning action. The Thompson Strainer’s internal flow patterns are responsible for making our unique product so effective. As liquid flows up through the internal riser pipe and deflects off the inner surface of the conical shaped screen, heavy sediments are forced downward, away from the screen, into the large debris reservoir. Unlike traditional basket strainers, ystrainers, or bag filters, the Thompson Strainer can be flushed while online and in service. Settled debris is easily removed by purging through the debris flush port.
