RV Series Sediment Strainers True Union Y-Pattern Specialty Valve

Sediment Strainers designed to trap suspended particles flowing in the process line.

  • Clear PVC construction
  • Available also in CPVC
  • Sediment strainers trap suspended particles

 

The RV Y-pattern strainer protects critical pipeline components by removing solids and suspended impurities. Clear PVC construction allows for inspection of the screen while in service, whereas the bottom-entry design permits maintenance on the valve while in-line. The RV is available with either EPDM or FPM seals, as well as in Corzan® CPVC.

Sediment strainers trap suspended particles flowing in the process line, ensuring that downstream components are protected.

Solenoids are ideal for high-cycle applications where remote operation and precise control are important. Lab cock valves are an economical solution for small scale on/off requirements.
