1/2" MPT Low Profile Strainer A 1/2" MPT (Male Pipe Thread) Low Profile Strainer is a type of plumbing fitting used to protect pipes and equipment from debris and particles. The low profile design allows for installation in tight spaces, making it a popular choice in applications where space is limited. The strainer is connected to the end of a 1/2" male pipe thread and has a basket or screen that traps debris and prevents it from entering the plumbing system. This helps protect pipes and equipment from clogs, damage, and reduced efficiency. The basket or screen can be easily removed for cleaning, allowing the strainer to be regularly maintained and kept in good working condition. The strainer material is typically made of brass, stainless steel, or plastic, each with its own unique set of properties such as corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. It's important to choose the right type of strainer material for the specific application, taking into account factors such as temperature, pressure, and exposure to chemicals. Additionally, it's important to choose the correct mesh size for the strainer screen, as a screen with too large of openings may not effectively filter out debris, while a screen with too small of openings may restrict flow and reduce system efficiency.
