Model 53BTX Ball Type Duplex Basket Strainer

Eaton’s Model 53BTX Duplex Basket Strainer can operate continuously, eliminating the need to shut down processes for cleaning of strainers. When the first basket is full, a unique flow diverter cartridge shifts flow to a second basket to permit removal and cleaning with no interruption to operations.

The unique flow diverter cartridge prevents fluid bypass into the out-of-service chamber. It features a dynamic sealing system that ensures exceptionally long seat life and positive sealing. Manual internal or external ball support adjustments are not necessary.

The compact, low-profile Model 53BTX fits into spaces that ordinary strainers may not, yet it still uses full-size strainer baskets with a low-pressure drop performance. Eaton offers basket openings from 3/4” down to 45 microns. Type 316 Stainless Steel is standard and Monel or Hastelloy C materials are optional
