how it works
A baffle within the trap line directs the product flow toward the magnetic field, assuring that ferrous contaminants come into contact with the powerful magnet. The area within the trap is enlarged to slow the product stream and allow increased exposure to the entire magnetic surface. Suggested placement of the trap is in horizontal lines, with the magnet element facing “up” to simplify cleaning. After product flow is terminated, the magnet is easily cleaned by removing the tri-clover clamp, lifting the magnetic element and hand-cleaning the surface.
