Vetus launches below-waterline water strainers

SCHIEDAM _ For filtering a vessel’s cooling water, Vetus has its trusted FTR330 strainers that perform well above the waterline. For boat owners who have no other option than to position the filter below the waterline, Vetus introduces the FTR33038M.

It is a heavy-duty model of Vetus’ FTR range. The filter housing is made out of Navidurin and features 38mm hose connections. On top of the housing sits a newly designed metal lid, which allows for easy inspection, i.e. without dismantling.

Vetus says the FTR33038M is tested up to a maximum of 8 bar, which means the filter is safe to place below the waterline.

The combination of the heavy-duty body and metal lid makes the FTR33038M filter ideal for use on faster boats where pressure can easily build up as speed increases. Because of the compact dimensions (ø148 x 162 mm) there is always a suitable spot on the boat.

The FTR33038M can be recognized on the black housing and the metal lid. It has 38mm hose connections and is intended for installation in fast semi-planing and planing boats.
