Eaton Model 72 Basket Strainer

The Eaton Model 72 has been the industry standard Simplex Basket
Strainer for more than 75 years. It is perfect for industrial and commercial
applications in which the line can be temporarily shut down for strainer
basket cleaning or changeout.

A reason for its popularity is the unusually large basket capacity.
The free straining area with a perforated basket is a minimum of
six times the cross sectional pip area. No tools are needed to
open the cover. The quick opening, swinging yoke can be
disassembled and the basket removed in seconds. On sizes 4”
and larger, a special cover clamp is provided to distribute the
seating pressure and to ensure positive seating of the cover.

Another feature is a threaded drain on every size strainer (fitted
with a plug). Sizes 2” and larger are equipped with legs that bolt to
the floor for rock solid installation.

Wall thicknesses are exceptionally heavy. The basket seats are precision
machined to give a tight seal and prevent any material from bypassing the
basket. The Eaton Model 72 Simplex Basket Strainer is a top quality,
heavy-duty unit designed to stand up to the most demanding of applications.
