Metraflex has introduced the LPD-MAG, upgraded with a Neodymium magnet to catch iron oxides. The Low Pressure Drop Y-Strainer from Metraflex was the result of a completely re-engineered design of the traditional Y-Strainer. Company officials said the LPD Y-Strainer provides a much better pressure drop and, at the same time, a much higher debris capacity.
The LPD-Mag works as a traditional LPD Y-Strainer to filter out debris within the system. The Neodymium rare-earth magnet installed within the strainer assists in the removal of iron oxide buildup. The magnet is installed into the collection vortex of the LPD, maximizing the magnet’s ability to catch iron oxide. The blow down port is designed to allow for a thorough blow down of the strainer to remove metallic and non-metallic debris while in service.
Customers with an existing LPD Y-Strainer from Metraflex in their system have the option of a retrofit kit. The kit includes a cover plate as well as the Neodymium magnet and drywell, fully prepared for insertion. Simply remove the original cover plate and replace with the provided magnet-ready plate.
