Keckley manufactures suction diffusers and triple duty valves as pipeline and pump accessories.

Simplex Basket Strainers

Simplex strainers are used to protect pipelines, valves, and spray nozzles from water flow problems from debris. Providing a greater screen area than a Y Strainer optimizes the total open area and minimizes possible pressure loss through the basket. They reduce the necessity for frequent basket cleaning and delivers a cost and time saving advantage with less downtime.

A basket strainer needs the removal of the basket for regular cleaning. Unlike the capability of a Y Strainer to remove the debris through the drain connection, a basket strainer requires the removal of the basket for cleaning. Therefore production must stop for basket cleaning.

Duplex Basket Strainers

In continuous flow applications where the process cannot be shut down for cleaning, Keckley duplex continuous flow basket strainers are optimal. Examples include lubrication systems, industrial or marine oil burners, chemical plants, cooling lines in power plants, compressors, condensers, ink supply lines to printing presses, and for water lines to cooling towers and pumping stations where water is taken from lakes or rivers. The major benefit of a duplex basket strainer is to deliver uninterrupted downtime for maintenance and cleaning.

Duplex basket strainers from Keckley in sizes ¾” through 6” have knob type covers for tool-free basket removal and are also designed so the handle is over the in-service chamber allowing for easy cleaning and removal of the off-duty chamber basket.


Keckley Y Strainers come equipped standard with drain connections and pipe plugs. Normally Y-strainers are adapted in the field with nipples and drain valves to allow the strainer screen to be cleaned while the system is still in use. By opening the drain valve while the system is under pressure, the debris trapped in the screen is removed through this connection reducing the need for system shut-downs for maintenance and cleaning.

Keckley Y Strainers are offered in both domestic and foreign castings with an extensive variety of straining options for almost any application.
