Paddock strainers are designed for superior flow and less pressure drop by off setting the strainer basket. This feature allows larger volumes of effluent water to the pump even under heavy basket loading from debris. Paddock strainers are fabricated from Type304 1/8” thick stainless steel material and coated with epoxy paint. The Strainer lids are machined to eliminate sharp edges and are sealed with a 1/4”diameter rubber ‘o’-ring gasket. The incorporated locking assemblies permit easy access and closing without use of tools. Stainless steel drain and vacuum couplings with threaded plugs are provided along with drilled and tapped gauge connections. The system is designed for 60 PSI working pressure. The 4”, 6“ and 8” strainers feature a 1/2” stainless steel cover ring with a clear viewport.
