Cooling water strainers

All VETUS cooling water strainers have a transparent cover for easy inspection of the filter without dismantling. Cleaning of the filter seldom needs to be done but can be easily and quickly achieved.

Typical Installation

VETUS advises to install the water strainer always above the waterline. Only type CWS, the metal filter, can be installed below the waterline. Always install a sea-cock behind the inlet water scoop.
