Duplex strainers are generally used in permanent service where continuous filtration is absolutely necessary.

Advantages:

  • Superior filtration area
  • Can be custom built
  • Continuous usage during basket change-out
  • Debris collects away from the process stream

Disadvantages:

  • Higher cost
  • Significant size and weight
  • Requires maintenance personnel (not prefred for unmaned or limited acces facility)
