Fire Line Basket Strainer with Flushing Drain FP-60F-D/DV

Used in fire protection pipelines primarily to prevent the clogging of fire sprinkler nozzles and other debris sensitve components in water or foam fire systems. The BERMAD FP-60F-01-D/DV is designed for in-line maintenance available with a large diameter flushing outlet for immediate and easy screen cleaning. In addition easy in-line access to the basket screen is enabled, requiring only the cover removal. The FP-60F-01-D/DV strainers are also well suited for use upstream of Pressure Control Valves and Deluge valves as well as other debris sensitive Fire System Devices. The ratio of the FP-60F-01-D/DV strainer’s basket area to its inlet pipe area is larger than 10:1, ensuring continued system performance even in the most debris-ridden firewater. The high capacity of the FP-60F-01-D/DV also results in a lower pressure drop and allows longer intervals between cleaning and servicing. NFPA 11, 13, 15 and 16 standards state that listed strainers shall be provided in the main pipeline of all systems using nozzles 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
