Clear body construction provides instant visual inspection; cap unscrews for convenient cleaning.  No wetted metals. Strainer must be installed as flow arrows indicate; as long as flow direction is correct the unit will effectively trap particulate in any orientation. The strainer element is accessed by unthreading the y-cap, and can be cleaned and re-installed. With proper cleaning and maintenance the strainer element can last indefinitely.

Y-Strainer vs. “Wye” Strainer — Know the difference

Generally speaking, the difference between a “Y” strainer and a “wye” strainer is a matter of semantics.  Many system designers refer to compact, inline particle strainers such as the Basiks YS-53 as a “Y” strainer, and reserve the term “wye” strainer for larger units that will remove objects that would singularly damage a pump or other parts of a system.   While this is mostly a matter of preference, be advised that some engineering firms and large end users may be quite particular about these terms.
