#1 Dirty contaminated water (red) is pulled into the ProStrainer by the pump connected to the flange at #8.
#2 Large debris such as plastic garbage bags or newspaper will get caught on the ProStrainer bag grabber center post.
#3 Water enters the ProStrainer body, it slows down allowing debris to separate based on its size and weight.
#4 Heavier debris settles to the bottom, #5 lighter debris floats to the back panels, and air will rise to the top #6 where it accumulates eventually forming an air bubble #7. When the accumulated air reaches a certain size the pump collapses the bubble and pulls it through the pump volute in one quick accelerated action. This process dramatically reduces pump cavitation...
ProStrainer™ Suggested Typical Installation
- Water is pulled from the venue by the pump to the ProStrainer
- Discharge pressure gauge
- Vacuum gauge should be installed between ProStrainer effluent and pump suction port for most accurate vacuum reading.. Vacuum at startup of new system should read between 1 and 3 inches of Mercury (Hg). Or 1.13 to 3.39 PSI.
- Draw latches have torque adjustment for proper seal
- Glazing Lid has built in handles for lid removal.
- Standard Model comes with clear “See Thru” lid.
- ProStrainer supply isolation valve
- Dual patented basket design dramatically improves performance.
- ProStrainer Body with annealed welds and special finish.
- Pump discharged water usually goes to a filter and then back to venue.
- Venue balancing and flow control valve
- Concentric increaser fitting
- Pump and ProStrainer isolation valve for service and shut down
- Vibration Dampener on each side of pump.
- Pump Motor should have high energy efficiency rating due to continuous duty cycle.
- Pump pad isolation dampeners
- Soft start or VFD motor starter on 5 H.P motors and up
- ProStrainer drain and winterizing plug.
- Be sure you have the minimum NPSH required by the pump manufacturer
- Maximum allowable water level is 13 PSI or 30 feet. Consult factory for higher ratings.
