Z-Plate Strainers are designed to protect water meters from
the effects of foreign matter and debris. The Z-Plate design is beneficial to
the hydraulics of a water line by canceling the turbulence and providing
smooth, laminar flow, thereby reducing the need for the installation of 8 to 10 diameters of straight pipe ahead of the in-line meter.
The Z-Plate Strainers can be easily serviced without removal
from the main line.
