Water Strainers: Mars 1½” - 30”

Operation
Z-Plate Strainers are designed to protect water meters from the effects of foreign matter and debris. The Z-Plate design is beneficial to the hydraulics of a water line by canceling the turbulence and providing smooth, laminar flow, thereby reducing the need for the installation of 8 to 10 diameters of straight pipe ahead of the in-line meter.

Application
The placement of the Z-Plate Strainer ahead of the in-line meter will maximize revenue and extend the life of the measuring element. To be used only in POTABLE COLD WATER up to 120 F (50 C) and Working Pressure up to 150 PSI. Working Pressure tests are performed prior to shipment. No further adjustments are required before installation.
Compliance to Standards
The Z-Plate Strainers comply with all material and design requirements of the American Water Works Association Standards C701 and C702, as most recently revised.
