Basket Strainers are used commonly in horizontal applications where cleaning will be less frequent. Because of their larger bodies, they typically provide more open area for debris collection than Y-strainers. The straining element for a basket strainer has a handle for easy removal and secure placement
within the strainer's body. The basket typically has a slanted top design or a straight top design.

NorthStock's Basket Strainers feature large straining capacities, precision machined seats, standard blow-off drain connections and cover vents furnished with plugs, and many screen options. All cast iron and carbon steel units are epoxy painted to resist rust; all threaded end connections have hex ends for easy installation. Many models have gauge taps as a standard feature.
