Y Strainer

On one discussion of maint items I mentioned that after all rubber impellerstyle pumps* we fitted a Y strainer to catch the bits and chunks as they depart a failing unit.

They all easily get caught in the screen..

Sen Dure is the supplier 0029 and 0029S* are the 1 inch and 1 1/4 models.

RE: Y Strainer

Are those threaded ends and if so, straight or tapered? I can't tell from the catalog.

RE: Y Strainer

US Standard National pipe threads (female) are in the ones we have seen.

They are built to be installed on the suction side of a sea water system , so the resistance to flow is minor when used on the pressure side of an impeller pump.

RE: Y Strainer

That is interesting, on my previous boat, a Camano with Volvo engine, the raw water strainer was after the pump. It didn't protect the pump but sure caught all sorts of shells, weed, and fish, which passed through the pump and impeller bits which would have gone on to the cooling system.
ideally one would have both.
Fred maybe you could post a picture of your set up? and the screen part

thanks

Fred,

I think I had one on a previous boat and wondered how it worked. I'd like to see a picture too.

You are what you eat. Do you want to be a vegetable?

RE: Y Strainer

Here's some advice from my Doctor:

His practice has no room for new patients! Now, hes a medical wizard!

I love this Doctor


Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speed up heart not make live longer; that like say you can extend life of car by driving faster. Want live longer? Take nap.


Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does cow eat? Hay and corn. What are these? Vegetables. So, steak nothing more than efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to system.. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef also good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And pork chop can give 100% recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.


Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine. That means they take water out of fruity bit; get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made out of grain. Bottoms up!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: If you have body and you have fat, ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, ratio is two to one, etc.


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Cannot think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No Pain...Good!


Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU NOT LISTENING!!! .... Foods fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetables be bad for you?


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only do sit-ups if want bigger stomach.


Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: You crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Vegetable!!! Cocoa beans best feel-good food around!


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming good for figure, explain whales to me.


Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!


Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

AND.....

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies:

1. The Japanese eat very little fat
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
And suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
