Stay flow Y strainers (wye strainers) remove any particles or solids from flowing liquid, gases or steam piping systems with the use of a straining basket made up of a wire mesh which is used to filter out solids and particles to protect equipment. Their names come from their body design, as the body is shaped as a "Y". Y strainers (wye strainers) are most often used for filtering out solids out of gases, steam or liquid. These strainers are usually made out of one of four materials stainless steel (CF8M), iron, bronze or carbon steel (WCB). Carbon steel (WCB) is used most often because it is sold at low cost and has the least chance of corrosion. Carbon steel (WCB) is used when higher temperatures are present, which makes them popular in the oil and petrochemical industries. Bronze handles mechanical and thermal shock better than iron, and is better in most corrosive places, but the temperature range is limited. Stainless steel (CF8M) is often used in places where corrosion could be an issue, and is commonly used in the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. They are manufactured with a wide selection of different end connections, including welded, threaded, and flanged.
