New Tapered Step Liquid Trap

February 10, 2010

New Tapered-Step design model in the plate-style series of the company’s Magnetic Liquid Trap product line is structured to hold ferrous debris against its solid tapered step to prevent wipe-off of tramp iron and fines even in high-density applications for volumes up to 180 gallons per minute (GPM). The tapered-step magnetic liquid trap comes equipped with powerful, high-energy Neodymium magnets which are capable of handling a 300 degrees F high-temperature load. This makes them ideal for clean-and-place systems. Furthermore, all of the company’s liquid traps can handle high-pressure processing lines; the 2-inch sized models are rated at 250 psi while the 3-inch and 4-inch models handle up to 200 psi. All of the company’s liquid traps are tested at 150 percent of the rated pressure. Configurations include single plate-style in 2- and 3-inch sizes as well as dual plate-style traps in 2-, 3- and 4-inch sizes. Standard models feature a food-grade finish however; sanitary-grade finishes are available.
