Fluid Engineering Product Update - for Oil & Gas Midstream Service!
(courtesy of Fluid Engineering Filtration News, Spring/Summer 2014 Volume 3, Issue 4)

It has been brought to our attention that there is a growing need for inline duplex strainers for the

mid-stream pipeline market, that is being forecasted to be installed across the USA and Canada.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2014 and continue through 2020, at least.

Fluid EngineeringÕs Model 534 and 545 have been very popular for this application.

We always pay attention to the feedback we get from customers and representatives: when we got

feedback that the Model 534 would be easier to pipe if it was inline (particularly on models larger than

four (4Ó) inch), Fluid Engineering added the model 545 inline duplex strainer to its product offering

(2Ó thru 12Ó sizes, ANSI 150# ratings and higher pressures on application) to improve liquid flow and save

money in the piping process.

But weÕre not done yet! ItÕs so new we donÕt even have a drawing for it!

The applications for the new Model 547 will be:

1. Meter and Pump protection and 2. Loading and unloading applications.

Preliminary information indicates a need for pipelines sizes of; 4Ó, 6Ó, 8Ó, 10Ó and 12Ó and will be in

the 300# ANSI Flange Ratings, therefore the Model 547 will be designed for 500 psig @ 150 degrees

F, all in accordance with ASME Code Section VIII Division 1. This model will be designed using the

Posi-Sealoc II¨ closure (Same as the model 120 Simplex) and using the new inline pipeline

configuration used on the Model 545 (Patent Pending). The baskets for the new model will all be

designed using a Stainless Steel Encapsulated Magnets to remove any iron particles found in the

liquid stream. Fluid Engineering will have the ability to build larger units and higher ratings as

specified. Contact us for more information!
