Model 50 5" Eaton Duplex Strainer with Flanged connection and Cast Iron body
The Eaton Model 50 plug type duplex strainer's design is simple and economical. This high-quality strainer is, in fact, a pressure rated plug valve with integral straining baskets.
To switch the flow from one basket to the other, the operating handle moves through a 90-degree arc. Because of the unique port design in the diverter plug, it is impossible for this operation to stop the flow. The entire switching operation takes fewer than 30 seconds, no tools required. Positioning the plug each time in exactly the right spot happens automatically by integral stops.
Before operating the handle, a specially designed, manual lifting jack built into the strainer, lifts the diverter plug off its seat. After the switching operation, the jack easily reseats the plug, even under high pressures. Because a built-in stop limits the distance the diverter plug rises, it minimizes the possibility of material bypassing the plug while rotated to divert flow. It also prevents debris from building up under the plug and making it difficult to reseat.
