The body and cover of the strainer are lined, not just coated, with Tefzel. This protects all wetted surfaces of the strainer making it impervious to attack by chemicals that can cause rapid deterioration of other types of plastics and all but the most costly metal alloys. The Tefzel fluoropolymer lining is inert to strong mineral acids, inorganic bases, halogens and metal salt solutions. Even carboxylic acids, anhydrides, aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, ethers, esters, chlorocarbons and classic polymer solvents have little effect on the Tefzel lining. Service temperatures can range up to 300F in many applications. The lining also displays excellent mechanical strength when handling abrasive slurries.
Fitted with fluoropolymer coated baskets or mesh baskets made of Monel or Hastelloy C these strainers can be used in almost any lined piping or similar corrosive/abrasive strainer application.
