The ACME Automatic Scraper Strainer has been designed to remove solids from 150mm in size down to 75 micron particles. The general literature piece describes the various connection options available as well as the advantages of a scraper strainer over a backwash strainer. These strainers are available with connections from 1″ up to 36″ in fabricated carbon steel, stainless steel and various alloys such as Alloy 20 and monel. All internal components, including the wedgewire screen are constructed of SS316L for durability and longevity. Special designs are available for viscous fluids, suction-side installations and jacketed vessels. All strainers are fabricated to the exact design requirements of each client and are still cost-competitive with cast-vessel backwash strainers from Acme's main competitors. As of June 2007, ACRS strainers can now be ordered with FRP vessels for maximum corrosion resistance in seawater or process applications.
