Liquid Plate Trap Magnet

MPI’s Trap Magnet — Plate Design — is designed to protect liquid and slurry lines and pumps by magnetically removing ferrous contaminants from liquid and slurry product streams. LPT Series Trap Magnets provide purification of liquids and tramp metal separation for a variety of wet food processing industries, from fluid and strained products to viscous and heavy fibrous products.

  • Type 304 stainless steel sanitary design and liquid-tight construction
  • Quick-release tri-clover clamp for easy inspection and cleaning
  • For use in product streams up to 75 psi
  • Available for line sizes from 1 ½ ” to 3” dia. in ¼” increments


How Liquid Plate Trap Magnets Work:

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.

The 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. Then lift the magnetic element and hand-clean the surface.
