The Y-type filter is mainly composed of a connecting pipe, a main pipe, a filter screen, a flange, a flange cover and a fastener. When the liquid enters the filter basket through the main pipe, the solid impurity particles are blocked in the filter blue, and the clean fluid passes through the filter basket and is discharged from the filter outlet.
The reason why the filter screen is made into the shape of a cylindrical filter basket is to increase its strength, which is stronger than a single-layer screen, and the flange cover at the lower end of the y-shaped interface can be unscrewed to periodically remove the particles deposited in the filter basket. .
Correct installation method of y-type filter
First of all, before installation, you should carefully clean the threaded connection surfaces of all pipes of the Y-type filter, and use pipe sealant or Teflon tape (polytetrafluoroethylene) to an appropriate amount. End threads are left untreated to avoid allowing sealant or Teflon tape to enter the piping system.
Secondly, the Y-type filter can be installed horizontally or vertically downward. Just pay attention to the material of the gasket of the filter when installing. If it is a non-metallic material, it is easy to be damaged due to excessive temperature.
Again, pay attention to the direction of the screens of different pipes? For example, the direction of the screens of the gas pipes should be horizontal, and the screens of the liquid pipes should be installed downward.
In addition, there are many types of Y-type filters, such as light filters, air filters, and liquid filters. Therefore, when installing, the installation method should also be determined according to the actual situation of different types of Y-type filters.
Y-type filter is an indispensable filter device in the pipeline system for conveying medium. Y-type filter is usually installed at the inlet end of pressure reducing valve, pressure relief valve, fixed water level valve or other equipment to remove impurities in the medium. , to protect the normal use of valves and equipment. The Y-type filter has the characteristics of perfect structure, small resistance and convenient sewage discharge. The suitable medium of Y-type filter can be water, oil and gas. Generally, the water network is 18-30 mesh, the ventilation network is 10-100 mesh, and the oil-passing network is 100-480 mesh. Basket filter is mainly composed of connecting pipe, main pipe, filter blue, flange, flange cover and fasteners. When the liquid enters the filter blue through the main pipe, the solid impurity particles are blocked in the filter blue, and the clean fluid passes through the filter blue and is discharged from the filter outlet
