Self Clearing Strainers

Through Tyler and Andy’s work they had noticed areas of the pumping system that were in need of some major improvements so they put their heads together and developed a new type of pump strainer. They came up with the Self Clearing Strainers. Our strainers are designed to utilise the air exhaust or the dewater blow out valve on any compressed air driven double diaphragm pump. It can use either of these processes to clear away debris from the face of the strainer and prevent excessive debris build up which usually results in the complete blockage of the strainer.


“Our strainer has well and truly paid for itself within its first month of use. We’ve got our strainer set up with water connected to the air inlet in a heavily silting sump and the results are amazing. We are not only saving on labour costs by having the Self-Clearing Strainer, but the peace of mind that it can’t run dry with the water inlet constantly on is priceless. Definitely recommend and would purchase again!”
