What is a river strainer?
Strainers are formed when an object blocks the passage of larger objects but allows the flow of water to continue - like a big food strainer or colander. These objects can be very dangerous, because the force of the water will pin an object or body against the strainer and then pile up, pushing it down under water. Strainers are formed by many different objects, like storm grates over tunnels, trees that have fallen into a river ("log jam"), bushes by the side of the river that are flooded during high water, or rebar from broken concrete structures in the water. In an emergency it is often best to try and climb on top of a strainer so as not to be pinned against the object under the water. If you are in a river, swimming aggressively away from the strainer and into the main channel is your best bet. If you cannot avoid the strainer, you should swim hard towards it and try to get as much of your body up and over it as possible.

To sanitize anything, you must either clean it with chemicals or immerse it in very hot water for a long period of time. To remove physical debris, soak it in warm water a…nd then run high pressure water through it.
A basket that strains waste water from going down a waste line
A strainer is an equipment mostly used in kitchens to separate unwanted materials or solids in liquid or it is used to sift flour.
a strainer traps particles to separate them out from the liquid you are using, this prevents the "bits" from fouling or wearing out parts in the system in plumbing, for exampl…e in your washing machine, or even simple things like stopping tea leaves when making a cup of tea.
They are somthing you put a food you were boiling in it (like pasta) and it gets the water out but doesn't harm the food. :)
u simply called a filtration device, which use ss screen to filter the water before going to the system.
Mechanical or electrical? By imposing electrical signals (short high impulse energy peaks), barriers can be constructed to keep fish and other vertebrates from passing the ba…rrier. These are common to prevent non-native species from moving upstream into sensitive native habitat. Mechanical strainers are things like log booms or oil booms, device that float of the water to prevent material from moving downstream with the flow of water. And, if we think back to a few years ago, strainers - more like seines - were used to catch fish.
The dangers of most pool strainers is that small children can get legs and feet sucked into them and get stuck. The strainer manufacturers need to put smaller guards on th…e strainers so that little ones cannot get legs and hands stuck.
Strainers can trap boats and knock boaters overboard.
Strainers block small craft in rivers.
Strainers are obstructions that allow water to flow, but block small craft.
A strainer is used to seperate solids from liquids, for example atea strainer would be used to remove tea leaves from tea.
the strainer is used to strain things such as liquid or fine particles
Wash it thoughly after each use with hot soapy water and let it air dry before putting it away to keep it from rusting.
an ocean, because it sorta empties it out.
Strainers can trap boats, and throw boaters overboard.
