A wye strainer works like a filter to protect the chiller's evaporator from contaminants that may cause it to foul (corrode and clog) over time. American Chillers uses strainers shipped loose to be installed in a convenient location so that it can be cleaned on a regular basis. Most brewers will agree that once the chiller is installed and the strainer is cleaned the first couple of times, it will rarely need cleaning again. However, we recommend working this into a regular maintenance program because if it clogs and flow is reduced, your chiller flow switch may prevent the refrigeration from operating.

A Y Strainer is fitted to the return line to prevent contaminants and/or particles from re-entering the glycol chiller. It also protects all the components of the chiller, as well.
