SELF-CLEANING STRAINER 

Self-Cleaning Strainers

Problem: Conventional strainers used in various shipboard piping systems require frequent maintenance, are labor intensive, result in system downtime and can be hazardous to personnel and machinery.

Solution:  Under the COSSI program, the Navy has been funded to operationally test the Spencer Self-Cleaning Strainer.  Tests are ongoing onboard USS DULUTH (LPD-6).  Upon completion of these tests, the strainer will require shock, vibration and EMI testing to qualify for military use.

    Navy POC:
    Jim Reid
    NAVSEA-05L3
    (202) 781-3646

     

Benefits

 

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum Annual:      $4,080K

Minimum 15 Year:  $61,200K

Fleet Impact: Widespread use of self-cleaning strainers will result in a significant reduction in regular maintenance on all shipboard systems employing strainers.

Status: Ongoing

A contract to produce and deliver a test strainer was awarded to Spencer Machine and Tool Company. The strainer has been delivered. MTTC awarded a contract to NAVSSES Philadelphia to perform shock, vibration and EMI testing. A test plan with schedule is being developed.
