Self Cleaning Strainer (Dual Drive)

How these strainers work:
A small amount of water is returned from the discharge side of the pump to the strainer. Inside, two special nozzles spray against the screen, causing
it to revolve. Any debris (e.g., algae, aquatic plants, or leaves) attracted to the screen is blasted off every half revolution. Strainers operate in any
position, and require only 35 psi to operate.

Eliminate Hot Spots
These strainers are designed with internal PVC suction tube with smaller holes at the top, (nearer to the pump), and larger holes at the bottom (farther from the pump) to even the draw or suction across the entire height of the cylinder screen. This prevents water from flowing in harder at the top of the screen, which leads to “hot spots.” (Clogging). Our screens utilize the full surface area for extremely consistent through-screen velocity, which maximizes the effectiveness of the cleaning nozzles.

 

 

 

Description

These strainers are designed with internal PVC suction tube with smaller holes at the top, (nearer to the pump), and larger holes at the bottom (farther from the pump) to even the draw or suction across the entire height of the cylinder screen. This prevents water from flowing in harder at the top of the screen, which leads to “hot spots.” (Clogging). Our screens utilize the full surface area for extremely consistent through-screen velocity, which maximizes the effectiveness of the cleaning nozzles.

Superior Cleaning – saves you time and money
Screens that revolve past stationary internal nozzles clean best. As the screen
rotates past the nozzles, debris is blown off and pushed away from the strainer.

The directional spray is effective at shedding debris and moving it far enough away
that it doesn’t become re-attached.

A clean suction screen lets the pump run efficiently, saving energy and getting
water to the field faster. Not having to stop the pump to clean debris saves time and
lowers maintenance costs.

Better Engineering, Better Value

Built with strong, lightweight, buoyant HDPE plastics to maximize the strength of the
strainer skeleton, without adding unnecessary weight.

The strainer is made of a rigid powder-epoxy coated, perforated aluminum sheet,
not wire mesh like competitive products. This makes it stronger and more durable.

High-performance, abrasion-resistant Delrin plastic injection-molded wear parts are
strong, and easily and inexpensively replaced.

All hardware is stainless steel for worry free durability.

Fish-friendly 
Small strainer screen holes and low-velocity water flows meet government regulations for protection of fish. The ultra-efficient design of the Sure-Flo system – with
rotating screen and cleaning nozzles – allows the screen holes to be smaller than
those of other strainers. The smaller holes also offer better protection of the pump,
in many cases eliminating the need for a filter.
