Duplex Basket Strainers for Various Temperature and Pressure Applications

Piping systems are an integral part of any industrial, commercial, or residential setup. They are used to transport liquids, gases, and other materials from one place to another. However, these piping systems are vulnerable to damage and clogging caused by debris and foreign particles. To prevent these problems, duplex basket strainers play a critical role in protecting your piping system and ensuring its smooth functioning.

Dual basket strainers are great choices for applications where the fluid flow cannot be interrupted to remove a basket and clean it. Completely continuous flow is maintained by taking of advantage of a two separate basket chamber design with valves to direct the flow from one housing to the other one.

Below are some of the options that we carry: Duplex strainers designed and manufactured by the industry experts: Fluid Engineering. Fluid Engineering specializes in the manufacturing of various types of industrial strainers, including duplex basket strainers. They offer high-quality duplex basket strainers that are designed to meet the needs of various applications and industries. Their strainers are manufactured using high-grade materials and are tested to ensure performance and reliability.


Please remember that you can always contact us with your project and application requirements and we’ll be glad to assist you with finding the best fit for you.

530 – 531 Basket Strainers


  • Uninterrupted Process Flow
  • Can Be Operated Under Vacuum Conditions

The valves in the 530/531 duplex are not integral. This makes valve maintenance and replacement a snap.

The 530/531 strainer housing and valve materials are available in many different materials and configurations to meet many different application requirements.


534 Basket Strainer


  • Uninterrupted Process Flow
  • It Can Be Operated Under Vacuum Conditions
  • Stand-By Housings: Switching Over to It Can Be Automated

The 534 fabricated design makes use of tall strainer housings to incorporate longer baskets that increase holding capacity and get longer run times between change-outs.

The valve changeover can be automated. The valves in the 534 duplex strainers are not integral, making valve maintenance and replacement a snap.

  • Preventing clogging and blockages in your piping system
  • Prolonging the life of your equipment
  • Reducing maintenance costs and downtime

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How often should I clean my duplex basket strainer?

It depends on the type and frequency of the flowing media, as well as the type of strainer you have. Some strainers may require cleaning every few days, while others may need to be cleaned every few weeks. It’s best to consult the manufacturer’s recommendations or consult with a professional for more specific guidelines.

2. What materials are duplex basket strainers made of?

Duplex basket strainers are typically made of materials such as cast iron, stainless steel, or bronze. The material you choose will depend on the type of flowing media, the environment in which the strainer is used, and the specific requirements of your application.

3. Can duplex basket strainers be used in high-temperature applications?

Yes, dual basket strainers can be used in high-temperature applications, but the material and configuration of the strainer will need to be specifically designed to handle these conditions. Consult with a professional to determine the best options for your specific needs.


Duplex basket strainers are essential for protecting your piping system from damage caused by debris and foreign particles. They work by filtering out these contaminants and ensuring that the flowing media remains free of contaminants.
