Once upon time, there were two strainer designs and each had their own benefits:

  • Slant type Basket Strainers had a straight flow path, which was ideal for laminar flow and minimal pressure drop.
  • Over-the-top type Basket Strainers prevented debris from bypassing the straining element.

That was until Titan's engineering team re-wrote the book and created the BS61, a brand new basket strainer design. Providing the best of both worlds, the BS61 has an over-the-top basket design for finer filtrations AND dual annulus for more laminar flow resulting in less pressure drop.

Read on to learn about how Titan's new basket strainer could provide the "happy ever after" for your pipeline story!

Chapter One: Smooth Flow

To begin with, Titan's engineers knew they wanted the BS61 to provide laminar flow so the kept they gave the BS61 dual annulus for a smooth flow path.  Using flow simulation testing, they determined this design achieved a 10% reduction in pressure loss compared to the over-the-top type of Basket Strainers.

Chapter Two: Clean Flow

Because Basket Strainers are installed to minimize debris in pipelines and protect downstream equipment, it was also important for the BS61 to prevent debris from slipping past the straining element. Therefore, Titan FCI's engineers designed the BS61 with a machined, flat seat for the straining element.  This feature allows an O-ring to be installed underneath the lip of the straining element creating a tight seal.

Chapter Three: Top It Off with a Quick Cover Option

Lastly, Titan's engineers focused on the user's convenience. The BS61 can be ordered with a quick open cover, reducing maintenance times and requiring NO TOOLS.
