Hydraulic Suction Strainers

A staple product that has been in our product line forever, it seems, is our hydraulic suction strainers. They are made for petroleum-based fluids and designed to be placed on the suction line to give added life to your pump. With the pump being the most important component in a hydraulic system, it is wise to protect it. They also can interchange with many other manufacturers’ suction strainers. They are available with pipe sizes up to 3″ NPT male and female, and with either a nylon or metal connector end.
