Ganter has now incorporated strainer fitting elements into its range of long-life stainless steel versions. These components are very important to protect key parts in piping systems from damage. Even the smallest foreign bodies in piping systems can cause serious malfunctions, because they damage or destroy components such as pumps, valves, sliders or other technically complex units. It goes without saying that such incidents result in high costs due to downtime, repairs or replacements. Simple, but effective, and above all long-lasting assistance is provided by the GN 7405 strainer fittings from Ganter. Standard elements are simply installed into the piping system as upstream or downstream protective devices, the integrated stainless steel filters with mesh sizes of 100 μm or 500 μm stop any foreign bodies from entering before these problems arise.
Both parts of the strainer fittings housing are held together by a union nut and then sealed with an O-ring made of high grade NBR. Currently Ganter offers its protective filters in three sizes with ⅜ , ½ and ¾ inch thread connectors, each in two versions: one with two-sided female thread and one with a combination of female and male threads, which are especially suitable for retrofits.
