Ron-Vik suction line strainer products

Suction Line Strainers

Suction line strainers are used to provide dependable protection for pumps and equipment. Ron-Vik offers a wide variety of suction line strainers so there is a model for most applications.

The base of the suction line strainer is available in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) or Nylon. As the chart below shows, there is a variety of standard base fittings. Standard meshes include 20x20, 30x30, 40x36, 50x50 and 80x80 T304 stainless steel, although Ron-Vik can customize the strainer for almost any screen including different mesh counts and/or T316.

PVC Based

The PVC base is permanently bonded to the mesh. Common applications for PVC suction line strainers include pool and spa equipment, water softeners, floor cleaning machinery, pressure washers and car wash equipment. The chart below lists our standard connection sizes.

Nylon Based

The injection molded nylon base is either bonded to the wire mesh by urethane adhesive, or, in applications where the urethane adhesive is not desirable, we can adhere the screen to the base by method of induction welding. Some of the many markets nylon suction line strainers are used for include hydraulic systems, paint spraying equipment, parts washers and chemical handling equipment.
