A filter is any device that separates solids from a fluid and so a strainer is a filter.
A strainer is used for devices that use a perforated metal plate or wire mesh screen to remove larger particles, while a filter is used for devices with more substantial filter media that remove smaller particles.
Y-Strainers are used where there is a small amount of material to be collected.
Simplex Basket are used when the flow or process can be shut down for a short period of time
Duplex Basketsare used when the flow or process cannot be shut down and must continue to flow. This allows you to shut one basket for cleaning while the other is still in operation.
Temporary Strainers are designed for filtration operation at high differential pressure of fluid and gashandling equipment during commissioning and start-up periods.
