Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton introduces their low-micron element for industrial users that offers finer filtration down to 25 microns, substantially lowers pressure differential and increases flow capacity. Available for the stainless steel, 2” - 8” Model 2596 automatic self-cleaning strainers, this rigid, cylindrical stainless steel element cleans easily, which leads to longer life compared to disposable media and reduces the disposal costs. The sintered mesh laminate removes the possibility of media migration into the processed product, thus avoiding risk of contamination and production downtime.

“Our new low-micron element extends Eaton’s position onto the finer filtration market and allows us to take advantage of this growing filtration trend,” said Rick Jacobs, president of Eaton’s Filtration Division. “We have set ambitious, yet practical sustainability goals with an eye toward developing products that reduce the environmental impact of our customer’s processes.”

The Model 2596 2” - 8” size stainless steel strainers are now equipped with high-efficiency motors and feature Eaton’s Cenpeller™ technology that directs incoming fluid into a circular flow, forcing the debris to lay against the surface of the strainer element in a way that makes backwashing easier and more efficient, and greatly reduces the need for manual cleanouts. To simplify maintenance the Model 2596 features a unitized modular assembly. The motor, gear reducers, and internal operating mechanism are housed with the strainer cover and lift off as one unit. This makes the components easily accessible, increases the safety for technical operators and reduces associated maintenance costs.
