Filterball - Combined Isolating Valve & Strainer
Part Number: FB
Quarter turn Isolating Ball Valve with removable Strainer inside the ball. In the closed position, both upstream and downstream connections are isolated and the Strainer can be inspected and removed through the side port. This single unit replaces the traditional Y Strainer and two Isolating Valves. The single unit reduces installation time, joints, space and cost. Furthermore the headloss is less than a comparable Y Strainer due to the straight-through design.
Where indicated on the drawing, an isolating ball valve with integral strainer shall be installed - model FB - as distributed by Arrow Valves Ltd - Tel 01442 823123 www.arrowvalves.co.uk. The strainer shall be stainless steel with a 700 micron mesh. The body shall feature a side port, which allows the strainer to be removed whilst isolating both valve ports. 1.
