sea strainer

SEA STRAINER Well I guess I will install one when I find a new Lee core. Anybody have a Lee intercooler core let me no.

Question

Im running my chiller off the bypass so it gets water only under throttle.

Im looking at running the Hardin Marine Intercooler Fine Mesh Sand & Sea Strainer ( P/N 625-4620 )

Should I plumb it after the bypass so it strains the superchiller water only? Or plumb it so the unit strains all water (engine & intercooler) direct from the Berkeley?

As it is a finer micron strainer to capture sand, perhaps it requires a larger micron strainer like a Groco unit ahead of it to capture any larger contaminants??

The Lee cooler is a great cooler, and actually does a slightly better job of cooling than the Super Chiller, but the Lee is more prone to clogging than the SC is. I have both, and the channels in the Lee are down right small compared to the SC. Just one of the reasons its more efficient.

Plus jets are more prone to pushing stuff thru the chiller if plumbed from the pump, or even a drag system. Jets can go where V drives and I/Os dare not tread.

A Lee cooler and a jet combo is the perfect application for a strainer.

The Hardin is meant for intercooler use only.
