Sentry MT-5 Magnetic Trap

Part #
Model #

Magnetite particles can cause huge problems within a sampling system by jamming and plugging components. The Sentry MT-5 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 Sentry VREL control valves, flowmeters and analyzers.

To meet varying power plant needs, the magnetic trap is available in low- to high-pressure models, as stand-alone traps as well as complete valve assemblies.
