Model 2596 - 2 to 8 Inches cast version

Eaton's Cast Model 2596 Automatic Self-Cleaning pipeline strainers 2" to 8" are available in cast iron or stainless steel. The strainers are available 2”, 3”, 4”, 4”L, 6”, and 8” sizes and feature Eaton's Cenpeller™ Technology, which consists of a unique vane plate positioned at the inlet of the strainer element where it contacts the flow before it enters the element. The vane causes the incoming flow to move in a circular motion, forcing the debris against the surface of the strainer element rather than impinging on the element and lodging in the element's openings. Lodged debris can negatively impact the differential pressure across the strainer, resulting in a shut down of the strainer, while the element is manually cleaned.
