Hale 2.5″ Suction Strainer
A Hale 2.5″ Suction Strainer is a device used in conjunction with firefighting equipment, specifically for the purpose of water intake from a water source. The strainer is designed to filter out debris and contaminants to prevent them from entering the fire pump or other firefighting equipment. The “2.5” in the name refers to the diameter of the inlet connection, which is 2.5 inches.
The suction strainer is typically made of lightweight materials and features a perforated or mesh design to allow water to flow through while trapping and filtering out debris. It is attached to the end of a suction hose, which is then connected to a fire pump or other water-moving equipment. By using a suction strainer, firefighters can ensure that the water being used to fight fires is free from debris that could potentially damage the equipment or hinder firefighting efforts.
