AskFilterman: Can a Y-Strainer be used in a vertical line?

Since Y-Strainers are used for protection (not collection f debris) in pipeline systems where the amount of material to be removed is small, the can be installed either horizontally or vertically.
However, it is recommended that shut-off valves be installed and the screening element must be on the down side of the strainer – flow into the screen.
