The Vetus Type 140 engine cooling water strainer provides a protective filter between the external water and an engine water cooling system. Once fitted, the Vetus water strainer helps to collect debris that can pass up through the sea cock into the engine cooling system. When the replaceable fine mesh Vetus Water Strainer 140 Basket is in place it prevents large foreign matter from entering and potentially causing major problems to the engine.
The Vetus water strainers utilize the transparent screw-down lid with a rubber o-ring, [product=7792]Vetus Type 140 Water Strainer Cover & O-Ring[product], which creates a watertight seal and prevents water from penetrating the seal.
The transparent lid allows for easy inspection of the filter and the screw thread lid is both quick and easy to remove without dismantling so cleaning of the filter can also be quick and efficient. Due to the large active surface area of the filter, however, the filter seldom needs to be cleaned.
