Y Strainers take the' - le from their configuration. They are typically used in appi;:5. On where the amount of solids to-beremoved is small, and where frequent clean - out is not required. They are most commonly used in pressurized lines, gas or liquid, but canalso be used in suction or vacuum conditions.

A Y-Strainer has the advantage of being able to be installed in either a horizontal or vertical position. However, in both cases, the screening element or “leg” must be on the "downside" of the straine body so that entrapped solids can be properly collected and held for disposal.A blow down plug on the drain port will allow clean-out without removal of the screen, and without interrupting the process flow.
