The LPD-Mag Y-Strainer is the industry’s first strainer solution to pump seal failures caused by iron oxide build-up within the water system. The Neodymium rare-earth magnet installed within the strainer assists in the removal of iron oxide buildup, helping to assure your system runs smoothly. The magnet is installed into the collection vortex of the LPD, maximizing the magnet’s ability to catch iron oxide. The particles are then blown down and removed, while in service.
While installing a trench box steam distribution system at Le Moyne College, engineers chose to stack Metraloops in manholes instead of using hard pipe loops, translating into significant savings.
President Jim Richter demonstrates how powerful the Neodymium rare earth magnets installed into Metraflex’s Magnetic Y Strainer, the LPD-Mag, are. Visit the LPD-Mag page for more info.
See how the globe-style check valve has lower pressure drops and smoother flow as compared to a wafer-style check valve.
check valve instead of a wafer style. You can save enough energy over the life of the system to pay for the globe style check valve many times over.
Try the new, easy-to-use calculator on the Metraflex web site. Simply input flow rate, pipe size and pump efficiency and see the savings in horsepower.
You can also watch the video showing a side by side comparison of flow rates. So whether you are a left brained or right brained, we have numbers and video to help you see how much better a globe style check valve is for the pump, and how much energy it saves.
Finite Element Analysis
Need help designing an engineered piping system? Contact Metraflex. We offer delegated design services for firms needing this special expertise.
Materials and Stamped Calculations
Increasingly project specifications are calling for a “delegated design submittal” and making the contractor responsible for the design of piping expansion. Metraflex uses CAEPipe® finite element analysis software to analyze your complex piping layouts for movement, stresses and anchor loads. You receive all the materials and calculations required for you to meet submittal requirements.
Metraflex services include:
- Stress analysis
- Design Calculations
- Anchor Details
- Guide details
- Material Certificates
- Welding Certificates
Learn more by contacting your local Metraflex account representative or contact Metraflex with your specific needs.
Just days after installation of Metraloop expansion loops at Safeco Field, Seattle experienced a 6.8 magnitude earthquake Safeco field. After all the movement and swaying, inspection of the piping system showed Metraloops had helped keep the system intact.
