Standard body vent on top of strainer
makes venting quick and easy.
Should the diverter valve require service, it slides
right out the top of the strainer body.
A minimum of parts, easily
makes service a snap.

The heart of the Tri Ball is the unique flow diverter cartridge
that features a patent pending, highly dynamic sealing system on the diverter
balls that ensures exceptionally long seat life and positive sealing.
Tri Ball design works so well that there is no need for
manual internal or external ball support adjustments — and the low
operating torque means the strainer can be operated with an easy-turn
lever handle. A gear box is not needed.
A double sealing system on both the upper and lower stems guards against
any possible leakage. Special reinforced polymer seats are used for extended
Should cartridge service become necessary, it's easy to accomplish. Just
remove four bolts and the cartridge comes right out through the top of
the strainer. There's no need to take the strainer completely apart or
to remove it from the line.
The compact, low profile Tri Ball fits into spaces ordinary strainers
might not, yet it still uses full-size strainer baskets with a low pressure
And, there's a strainer basket for every application. The standard basket
is made of Type 316 Stainless Steel; however, if required, Monel is available.
Baskets with openings from 3/4" down to 45 microns are offered: choose
the best size for your application — with no compromises.
For easy basket servicing there is a 1/4" drain plug on each strainer
basket chamber. Additionally, there is an easy-to-access vent valve on
top of the strainer body.
Finally, standard foot mounting pads insure a rock solid installation
no matter where the strainer is installed.
Available options for the Tri Ball include differential pressure gauges,
with or without switches, and magnetic separators installed in the strainer
basket for removing fine ferrous particulate matter from the process media.
