Heatric recommend strainers (typically 330 micron) as standard fitment for all Heatric exchangers during normal operation in order to remove particulates that may cause blocking of the units.
However, during commissioning of a Heatric exchanger, these will be specified as mandatory to remove foreign objects that may be present in pipework which could cause damage to the exchanger core.
Heatric recommend 2 types of strainer for use with our diffusion bonded units.
1) Gas side strainers: In-line cone-type which are extremely robust and have high burst pressures
2) Coolant side strainers: On-line cleanable solutions with automatic backwash
