Metraflex LPD Y-StrainerThe LPD Y-Strainer has the same face-to-face size as a standard Y-strainer design and can be retrofitted into existing piping systems. It is designed to save energy and features a screen that is 30% larger and has significantly more holes, so it takes longer for debris to collect and impede flow. The internal geometry has eliminated obstructions; the body casting does not block the screen opening and there is a smooth, open flow from intake to discharge. The LPD Y-strainer has opened up the interior of the strainer so flow is straighter and smoother through the strainer.
