The Hydromatic strainer eliminates the nuisance of unwanted and untimely system shut-downs due to strainer clogging from seaweed, jellyfish, etc. It incorporates a powerful electric macerator pump which periodically cleans and flushes the strainer without the nedd to shut down connected devices. A remote control panel is included.
One large inlet and 1 large outlet, plus 2 smaller outlets...
The Hydromatic 970-1515 strainer can function as a sea-chest — replacing multiple seacocks, traditional strainers, thru-hull fittings and related plumbing. This can markedly reduce the cost and complexity of new or retrofit installations.
It has a single large 1-1/2" NPT inlet port at the top and a large 1-1/2" NPT outlet port to supply a large consumer (a main engine, for example). It also has 2 additional 1" NPT outlets for a genset, AC, etc. on the sides. Simply secure any outlets which are not used with pipe plug fittings.
