Raritan Raw Water Strainer's

Quote:
The Raritan Raw Water Strainer's high capacity filter is easily visible through the clear, high strength body. Accumulated debris can be easily cleared from the removable filter basket, ensuring clean intake water. The Raw Water Strainer's clear, high strength plastic body makes debris easily visible for efficient detection and removal from the filter. This economical solution offers a trouble-free installation that protects such equipment as engine cooling systems, marine toilets and other accessories that use intake water.

Plumbing connections are 1- 1/2" FNPT. Reducing bushings and adapters allow flexibility in installations.
I was thinking of replacing an old brass and glass strainer with one of thease...any body have experience with them?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I switched to this strainer several years ago. Replacing the stainless/monel filter baskets was breaking me. For me the metal units were definitely not as durable. I have been very happy with the unit until I broke off one of the mounting ears while working on the boat. My own stupidity, but it cost me a new strainer.

Raritan Raw Water Strainer's

This is way to strange, I just finished taking my similar Raritan apart for cleaning. It has been on the boat 10-15 years; bullet proof plastic. It does not do much since it just filters the water between the seacock and the engine so it should last a long time. I think they are around 100 bucks so reasonable. Easy to clean. The brass ones I must confess look really nice but not sure if you are getting much more for a bunch of money. Just my opinion.

What are you using it for? I bought one when I got a Raritan head and found it way too big for that application.

I kept going through the stainless baskets and bought polyethylene baskets by Groco that I hope will last longer. They were cheaper than the stainless baskets.

Maybe that thing's bigger than it looks? What are the dimensions? Maybe that screen is finer than it looks, but I'm wondering if it's fine enough to stop most silt you might suck up from a shallow, muddy river/creek/canal bottom?

We need a strainer, particularly in our sometimes-shallow, muddy-bottomed canal.

Hmmm... From http://www.raritaneng.com/pdf_files/...r_strainer.pdf

WINTERIZATION
Close seacocks, drain water completely. Do not add anti-freeze compounds, they will cause deterioration of the plastic, causing it to crack.
But maybe not this one.

SEMIJim-

A strainer isn't designed to stop mud or silt. It's designed to stop weeds and such. Your primary fuel filter, usually a 30 micron, is supposed to stop the silt and such. Your secondary fuel filter, usually a 5 micron, is supposed to catch the rest of the crud.
