Mueller Steam Specialty Announces Smart & Connected Technology for Duplex & Wye Strainers

Share With:

Mueller Steam is helping facility engineers detect when strainer maintenance is needed to prevent production downtime. New differential pressure monitoring technology now comes standard on our duplex strainers and is optional on our wye strainers.

With the purchase and activation of an add-on connection kit, the pre-installed pressure sensors at the inlet and outlet of the strainer monitor the pressure drop that occurs over time when a strainer screen becomes clogged by foreign particles.

Alerts are triggered via an existing BMS connection or cellular gateway when the strainer basket is 75% full and 100% full.

These sensors do not change the operation of the strainer – they still comply with all the necessary certifications and do not interfere with the normal function of the strainer.

“This is the first smart strainer technology of its kind,” says Jennifer Carlino, Sr. Product Manager at Mueller Steam Specialty. “Facility engineers will now be able to perform strainer maintenance proactively, rather than reactively, which will help protect costly equipment from damage as well as maintain consistent flow and efficient system performance.”
