SSI Strainer

SSI Strainer is also known as SSI Fabricated Strainers. However, SSI Strainers are a division of Hellen Strainers and manufactured in Middleton, Ohio.

SSI Strainers products include fabricated “Y” strainers, temporary strainers, fabricated “T” strainers, fabricated duplex strainers, auto self-cleaning strainers, fabricated basket strainers, suction diffusers, and fabricated code tanks and vessels.

In addition, people call industrial strainers as pipeline strainers, piping strainers, stainless steel strainers, and pipe strainers. An industrial strainer aims to remove or filter particles of matter from fluids or gas, as well as steam or other vapors. Industrial strainers aid in the industrial industry.

A “Y Strainer” takes its name from its configuration and is primarily used in pressurized lines, gas, or liquid. However, somebody can also use them in suction or vacuum conditions.

We also use Y Strainers for applications where small amounts of solid particulate and clean-out will be infrequent. For example, if solids will flush easily from the screen, and fluid can be exhausted to the atmosphere, a blow-down valve on the drain port will allow clean-out without removal of the screen and without interrupting the process flow.

Other SSI Strainers include temporary strainers, which can be defined are designed for quick installation during the commissioning of new pipelines and flushing pipelines after modifications and typically removed once the system has been purged clean.

They are installed upstream of pumps and other equipment to protect them from particles that would damage them. The temporary strainers can be in the shape of a cone or witch’s hat.

SSI Fabricated

Fabricated Tee strainers are in the shape of a Tee. Tee strainers are custom made in sizes and are available in any size, with 150, 300, or 600# flanges or weld ends, and in carbon steel or stainless steel.

Unless otherwise specified, SSI Strainers will provide 1/8″ perforated 304 stainless steel screens will be supplied, but different size perforations and meshes are available in stainless steel, Monel, and brass.

They can be buttweld, or class ASME 150 to 1500 or above. 2” to plus 24”. SSI Strainers applications include steam, liquid, gas, and oil service. Industries include the hydrocarbon industries, Power, Off-shore, Pulp and paper, wastewater, metals, and mining.

SSI Fabricated Duplex Strainers

Fabricated duplex strainers are a type of filter built into a fuel, oil, or water piping system, and you use them to remove large particles of dirt and debris.

The duplex strainer system usually consists of two separate strainer baskets housings. SSI Fabricated Strainers can be cast iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, and other exotic material. Sizes for 2” and more extensive.

Automatic self-cleaning strainers are motorized strainers used to remove contaminants and debris from an industrial pipe system continually. SSI Strainers is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hellen Strainer Company.

The Automatic Industrial Strainers are manufactured to ISO-9001 and meet all codes: ASME, CE/PED, Lloyds Register, Navy Mil Specs, and others for industrial and marine environments.

We provide sizes ranging from 1.5 inches to 20 inches in 5 available body styles to match application-specific requirements. In addition, all types of Hellen and SSI Strainers come in iron, steel, stainless, super duplex stainless steel, and bronze.

The Hellan Strainer Company offers a wide range of American-made cast strainer systems and fabricated fluid strainers.  Our Hellan Strainers and SSI Fabricated Strainers are available in manual style as well as fully automated. Hellan Strainers and SSI Strainers aid in Military, Industrial, and Commercial applications.

Hellan Strainer Company has been a preferred supplier and manufacturer of manual and automated strainers to the US Navy Suction Diffusers supplied by SSI Strainers are used before a pump to act in a combination of ways to protect the pump and process. It would be best if you placed the suction diffuser on the suction side of the pump.

It acts like a strainer and optimizes flow to the pump. It can be in the vertical or horizontal plane.

SSI Strainers Suction Diffusers

SSI Strainers suction diffusers are a reducer, strainer, and sort of elbow. The following are part of the certifications held by SSI Strainers and Hellan Strainers.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Hellan Strainers are designed and manufactured per ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII, Division 1. All strainers are proof pressure tested at 150% of their recommended maximum allowable operating pressure.
