Model 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Cast Pipeline Strainers

The Model 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Cast Pipeline Strainers are available in 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, and 8” sizes. A 4”L size is also available which allows for greater flow rates. The Model 2596 is recognized across industries for its continuous flow, simplified maintenance, and worry-free operation.

The Model 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainer is designed for the continuous removal of entrained solids from liquids in pipeline systems.

With an automated control system monitoring the strainer operation, cleaning is accomplished by an integral backwash system. A small portion of the screen element is isolated and cleaned by reverse flow while the remaining screen area continues to strain providing uninterrupted flow. This efficient design uses only a small amount of the liquid being strained to carry debris away from the strainer element.

The Model 2596 features the idL™ shaft seal that positively prevents leakage from the backwash shaft at the top of the strainer. This unique quad seal keeps the exterior of the strainer dry and prevents external leakage or weeping of the process media down the sides of the strainer.

The 2” to 8” size strainers feature Eaton’s Cenpeller™ technology, which directs incoming liquid into a circular flow forcing the debris to lay up against the surface of the strainer element in a way that makes backwashing easier and more efficient and greatly reduces the need for manual cleanouts.

To simplify maintenance the Model 2596 features a unitized modular assembly. The motor, gear reducer, and the internal operating mechanism are housed within the strainer cover and lift off as a unit. This makes all components easily accessible and reduces associated maintenance costs
