One of the main advantages is that it can be cleaned without shutting down the process.

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)
