Magnetic Filter Y-Strainers

OEI Magnetic Y-Strainers are recommended for low-flow applications with space restrictions. This filter employs a magnetic filter element and mesh screen. Systems are designed for the application’s fluid, flow volume, viscosity, mobility, and mounting requirements. Y-strainer designs are offered for cryogenic, high-pressure, and high-temperature applications.

Description

OEI Magnetic Y-Strainers are recommended for low-flow applications with space restrictions. This
filter employs a magnetic filter element and mesh screen. Systems are designed for the application’sfluid, flow volume, viscosity, mobility, and mounting requirements. Y-strainer designs are offered forcryogenic, high-pressure, and high-temperature applications.

Benefits

» Requires minimal consumables.
» High holding capacity allows for extended planned maintenance periods.

Efficiency

Magnetic Filter Element
Ferrous Contamination
Captures ferrous wear particles down to 4 μ and below with up to 95+% efficiency.
Non-ferrous Contamination
Non-ferrous particles are magnetically captured because of cross-contamination from static charge or embedded ferrous particles.

Operating

Install the magnetic Y-strainer inline with the magnetic filter element on top for easy access when cleaning. For any installations on suction applications, the mesh screen must be removed to prevent cavitation.

Magnetic Filter Element

Remove the contamination by wiping downward with a lab cloth or rubber glove.

Mesh Screen:

Clean with solvent, soap and water, a parts washer, or ultrasonically, then air dry.

Use the magnetic filter element as a predictive maintenance tool by removing contamination with a lab cloth or rubber glove and depositing it into a sample jar. Send the contamination for analysis to determine the source of equipment component wear and prevent system failure.
