Product Description

Introducing the LPD-Mag from The Metraflex Company, the lowest pressure drop Y-Strainer on the market, upgraded with a Neodymium magnet to catch iron oxides. The LPD-Mag is the industry’s first strainer solution to pump seal failures caused by iron oxide build-up within the water system.

This large accumulation of iron oxides is known as “sludge”. Overtime, sludge can work its way into even the smallest openings in your system, clogging and slowing down system performance and efficiency. This leads to seal failures in pumps, damaged boilers, chillers and heat exchangers. 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.

⚠ Please be advised that any magnetic field can influence the performance of any cardiac conduction devices (pacemakers, ICDs, etc.) and could be unintentionally deactivated. Most individuals are not familiar with how magnets will react to each other, let alone to their surroundings. Magnets can move unpredictably and the larger the magnet, the more dangerous they become.
