IMI Introduces T-Trap Magnetic Separator

Industrial Magnetics introduces a t-trap magnetic separator for liquid processors.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) introduces a t-trap magnetic separator for liquid processors that reportedly offers improved metal capture rates, durability and ease of cleaning. The new design features a single, large-tube magnet that provides direct, in-the-flow contact of the product to the magnetic tube. The increased contact area offers an advantage over traditional plate style t-traps that rely on a diverter to angle the product flow towards the magnet, according to the company. The single, large tube design also reportedly reduces the chance for catastrophic failure.

The large-tube t-trap is suitable for liquids, purees and products that may contain small solids in high flow rate processing lines, such as juices, applesauce or cottage cheese.  The separators are typically placed in front of pumps, screens and mills to ensure product purity and to protect vital plant equipment from costly metal damage and system downtime.

Available in 1-1/2" - 6" line sizes, the t-trap can be installed in either horizontal, vertical or sloped line orientations.
