Industrial Applications for Acme strainers
Summary of areas where an Acme scraper strainer can be installed in industrial marketplace and automatic strainer application.
The market niche for ACME scraper-strainers and application for strainers is for screen openings larger than .003 inches or 75 microns and goes up to a high end of 6 inch or 150mm particles. At the finer straining end of the ACME line, there is an overlap with the upper end of backwash-type strainers of various designs. As particle sizes grow larger, backwash units fail to compete because the contaminants will either jam up the backwash system or remain in the body of the strainer, requiring manual removal and interruption of the process flow.
Automatic strainers save substantial labor costs when compared to manually-cleaned strainers and ensure continuous, uninterrupted flows even during blowdown cycles.
Industries where automatic strainer application are required include but are not limited to: Water Filtration Intakes, Discharges, Process Equipment, Cooling Towers, Food and Beverage Industry, Pulp and Paper Industry, Power Companies,
Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals, Chemical and Oil Industries. each industry has its’ own unique requirements and Acme Engineering specializes in manufacturing customized commercial strainers.
