Sentry MT-1 Magnetic Trap

Part #
Model #

Magnetite particles can cause huge problems within a sampling system by jamming and plugging components. The Sentry MT-1 magnetic trap isolates magnetite particulates to protect sample conditioning and analytical instruments from critical downtime and costly repairs. The magnetic trap uses high strength neodymium magnets in its core to attract and capture the magnetite before it can cause damage, protecting analyzers.

To meet varying power plant needs, the magnetic trap is available in a low-pressure model.

While conventional filters trap all particulates and choke off sample flow as the filtering media becomes plugged with contaminants, the Sentry MT-1 magnetic trap captures only entrained oxide particulate and lets the remaining particulates pass, protecting conditioning equipment while maintaining sample integrity.


  • Designed specifically for the extreme conditions of power plants
  • NEVER plugs
  • Spring-return air bleed bleeds any trapped air at start-up
  • Large magnetic surface area
  • Hydrotested for simple field retrofit or new panel installation
