The Specialty Manufacturing Company, a worldwide leader in custom metal and plastic valves, has announced their entire offering of suction strainers are available immediately, with all orders shipping in just two weeks and many popular sizes as fast as next day. Suction strainers provide protection in liquid or air applications by trapping debris before it can enter and damage the pump.

Made in the USA, Specialty Manufacturing Company suction strainers –also commonly referred to as sump strainers– feature type 304 stainless steel mesh sizes from 4 to 100 with a 1/8″ to 3″ Nylon NPT base. These strainers are rated for continuous use up to 200°F, and custom mesh sizes are available.
