The Thompson Strainer is our highly efficient, patented stainless steel strainer which features a large conical screen, offering substantially more screen surface area versus traditional y-strainers or basket strainers. The strainer has a unique design: as water enters the bottom of the strainer housing and flows upward, heavier debris and particulate is accelerated downward, away from the conical screen, into the large debris reservoir at the base of the strainer. The particulate is then flushed from the reservoir via the debris flush port. Due to the large amount of screen surface area, all models operate with less than a 1-PSI pressure loss at maximum flow when clean.
The Automatic Turbo-Disc Filter is a fully automatic, self-cleaning disc filter system. Available in multiple micron sizes, the lightweight three-dimensional polypropylene disc media uses a minimal amount of backwash water (approximately 10 gallons of water per pod) relative to other automatic filters on the market.
Basket strainer and bag filter housings are available in many models, sizes and pressure ratings. Accessories such as filter pot and pipe strainer products are also available.
These multi basket strainers and multi bag filter housings offer a wide range of flow capacities and contaminant-holding capabilities. They contain from 2 to 23 baskets. To serve as a strainer, a unit is ordered with perforated stainless steel baskets (mesh-lined if desired). When ordered as a filter, it's fitted with perforated stainless steel baskets designed to hold disposable or cleanable filter bags. Industry-standard size bags are used: the standard 30 inch baskets accept bag size 2, the optional 15 inch baskets take size 1. The standard pressure rating for all models is 150 psi. All multi basket strainer and multi bag filter housings can be supplied with an ASME code stamp, if required.
