magnetic tube separator / metal
Model L Traps
For 2" (51 mm) Pipelines
This Ferrous Trap model has been designed to serve as an effective, low–cost, magnetic pipeline trap where operating conditions are not too severe. This unit is of 316 stainless steel construction capable of withstanding pressures up to 150 psi (10.5 kg/sq cm). It is built for 2–inch (51mm) pipelines; standard reducers can be used to adapt it to lines as small as 1/2–inch (13 mm). The powerful magnetic circuit is encased in one stainless steel tube. As a built–in safety factor, any material that might be brushed off by the flow will tend to pass the outlet and accumulate in the pocket at the end of the body.
This unit is the same as the Model L, except it has a brass or optional stainless steel filter sleeve that fits around the magnetic tube, making the unit perform a dual separating operation. Magnetic power from the tube draws and holds fine iron contamination, while the filter element catches and holds nonmagnetic fines, lint, etc. This model is recommended where more than magnetic impurities contaminate a product.
