72SJ Steam Jacketed Strainer

Sizes 1″ to 8″ • Carbon Steel or Stainless Steel • Flanged Simplex Strainer for High Viscosity Fluids

Eaton Hayward 72SJ Simplex Basket StrainerThe Eaton Model 72SJ steam jacketed simplex strainer is used for applications where materials must be kept hot in order to remain fluid. Material examples are chocolate, asphalt, resins and polymers. The strainer body temperature is maintained by circulating steam or a heat transfer fluid through the strainer jacket. The strainer body is provided with either a carbon steel or a stainless steel jacket welded to the cast body. The jacket will handle steam pressures up to 100 psi.

The basic strainer used in the Model 72SJ is our popular Model 72 Basket Strainer which has, over the years, proven itself a standard of industry. All of the features of the Model 72 have been retained, including large capacity baskets and yoke type, hand removable covers for quick basket cleaning or change out.

No tools are needed to open the cover for basket cleaning or
change out – an operation that is accomplished in a matter of seconds
with a yoke type cover. The standard cover seal is Viton® and
can be used in most applications up to a temperature of 400°F. For
higher temperature applications, non-asbestos seals are available.
