Strainer between pump and engine?

I'm have a closed cooling system with a heat exchanger and am considering a small Vetus strainer inline on the discharge side of the coolth pump (not the raw water pump), The idea would be to catch any fragments of a failed impeller before they get to the engine. Do any of you do this? Is there a superior solution?
