Fluid Conditioning Products produces a wide range of filters that use perforated metals or stronger, coarser wire mesh than is typically used in wire cloth. These are called strainers.
Typically, strainers filter out particles that are 100 microns or larger. These particles can cause severe damage to pumps, valves and other major components.
Industrial basket strainers can be constructed by FCP in virtually any size or configuration. The important design parameters are generally flow, pressure drop and particle size.
Special "ground-only" air intake screens were manufactured by FCP for fighter jets. The principal objective of this strainer is to keep tools, birds and other debris from entering the jet engine through the air intake during engine servicing and storage.
In other applications, FCP has incorporated magnets into some larger strainers to capture metallic particles. We have also created basket-type strainers as tall as six feet and as small as the inlet to a 1/8th inch fitting.
FCP works closely with customers to ensure that we meet the precise specifications required by their application, and that we deliver the final product in a cost efficient and timely manner.
