Sanitary Components: Y-Strainers

Y-Strainers fit into tight spaces and allow for easy cleaning

Small Footprint, Increased Efficiency

Do you need a strainer that can fit into a tight area? If yes, a Y-strainer may be the right strainer for your process.

The Sani-Matic Y-Strainers are designed to fit into tight piping configurations where room is scarce. The design also provides easy access to the element for quick inspection and cleaning.

Our Y-Strainers are engineered with a close-tolerance fit (0.010”) at the base of the insert that eliminates the need for an O-ring. Fewer parts mean faster cleaning and increased productivity.

Sani-Matic Y-Strainers are 3-A certified when used with the perforated element.

Not sure which strainer or element is right for your process? Call  your  local Sani-Matic distributor or Sani-Matic Inside Sales Specialist–we are here to help you achieve a complete clean.
