Temporary strainers are designed for protection of equipment and instrumentation during start-up periods. The strainer is usually installed between a set of flanges for an initial period after a new plant is installed. There are three basic configurations of temporary strainers such as conical type, the basket type and the plate type. They are very easy to install and remove when the system is put into service. Temporary strainers are designed for start up service of new or revamped piping systems.
