Hayward Flow Control's market leading thermoplastic fluid handling products and solutions have proven to excel in the harshest environments for over 60 years. Hayward strainers can be applied in aggressive and corrosive systems, as well as delicate life support systems where the strictest chemical balance is required. Hayward basket strainers and Y-strainers are designed to protect pipeline system components from dirt and debris while allowing process media to flow freely, playing an integral an essential role in the health and operation of piping systems. 

Hayward Flow Control thermoplastic strainers come in three families of products: 


Y-strainers function in a variety of liquid straining applications to protect downstream process system components from damage or clogging by debris. Y-strainers remove unwanted solids by utilizing a perforated or mesh screen. Y-strainers are cost effective when removing a small amount of material resulting in long intervals between screen cleanings. Hayward offers both a "molded-in" and True-Union design for Y-strainers.

Simplex Basket Strainers

Simplex basket strainers are used with liquids requiring regular or frequent cleaning. Basket strainers can hold more material than Y strainers can, and they also offer a lower pressure drop. Simplex basket strainers are installed upright and in a horizontal line, making it easier to use with high loads, high viscosity fluids, or large pipeline sizes where the weight of a filled basket can be substantial. They are indispensable for prefiltration systems. 

Duplex Basket Strainers

Duplex basket strainers operate continuously, so you do not have to stop the pipeline flow to clean out the baskets. When one basket is full, the flow shifts to the other basket, making it simple to remove, clean, and replace the first basket. Duplex or “double basket” strainers are valuable in locations where you can not shut off flow or stop operation. 

Hayward Flow Control products carry an industry-leading, full three-year warranty. Hayward is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, striving for the highest quality product possible for use in a wide range of demanding applications.
