Mueller Steam announces smart strainers

Pre-installed pressure sensors at the inlet and outlet of the strainer monitor the pressure drop.

For the industrial steam market, Mueller Steam is now offering new differential pressure monitoring technology standard on its duplex strainers and as an option on its wye strainers.

The smart and connected technology allows facility engineers to detect when strainer maintenance is needed to prevent production downtime.

With the purchase and activation of an add-on connection kit, the pre-installed pressure sensors at the inlet and outlet of the strainer monitor the pressure drop that occurs over time when a strainer screen becomes clogged by foreign particles.

Alerts are triggered via an existing BMS connection or cellular gateway when the strainer basket is 75% full and 100% full.

These sensors do not change the operation of the strainer – they still comply with all the necessary certifications and do not interfere with the normal function of the strainer.
