Recently, STC Trade delivered new HDPE inlet strainers to Royal Huisman for the sailboat Foftein. For these STC Fiberstrain™ strainers, connection dimensions DN100 were used with tight installation dimensions. Furthermore, the vent had to be on the port side, at a different angle than on the starboard side. Although many standard strainers have been supplied to Royal Huisman, these specific inlet strainers were a unique design challenge.
The strainers were delivered within the agreed time. Royal Huisman has announced that the strainers fully meet all expectations and are neatly finished.
