Strainer Data

Foreign matter such as particulates, Teflon tape, pipe dope, etc., can jam moving parts within a solenoid valve or clog very small orifices required for operation. The result can be a failure to open and/or close completely. We recommend 60 mesh (0.009" opening) filters for pipe sizes up to 1.0" and recommend 30 mesh (0.02" filter perforations) for 1 ΒΌ" and higher valves.
