The BERMAD FP-60F Basket Strainers are designed to be installed in fire protection pipelines primarily to prevent the clogging of fire system nozzles of automatic sprinklers, deluge spray or foam systems.
The FP-60F strainers are also well suited for use upstream of BERMAD Pressure Control Valves and Deluge valves as well as other pipeline debris sensitive Fire System Devices.
The ratio of the FP-60F strainer’s basket area to its inlet pipe area is larger than 10:1, ensures continued system performance even in the most debris-ridden firewater.
The high capacity of the FP-60F also results in a lower pressure drop and enables longer intervals between cleaning and servicing.
The BERMAD FP-60F is designed for in-line maintenance with easy access, requiring only the top cover removal for basket screen cleaning or without removing the main strainer housing body from the pipeline. NFPA 11, 13 , 15 and 16 standards state that listed strainers shall be provided in the main pipeline of all systems using nozzles, with waterways less than 3/8” (9.5mm) and for any system where the water is likely to contain obstructive material.
Strainers shall be capable of removing all solids of sufficient size to obstruct fire protection devices and equipment waterways.
