Suction elements are designed to protect the pump and system from fluid contamination. These strainers are intended to be located inside the reservoir; fully submersed in the fluid. Due to cavitation limitations of pumps, Parker strainers are comprised of relatively coarse media in either 150µ or 560µ absolute stainless steel wire mesh media. For this reason, they are not used as primary protection against contamination. Also available to further protect against cavitation, Parker suction strainers are offered with integrated 3psid by-pass valve and ceramic magnets options.
