Bag and strainer filter magnets remove unwanted small particulate (down to 400 mesh) such as microscopic iron and steel that are present in the fluid. Due to the size of the particles, they tend to easily pass through the finest of mesh screens and bag filter media. This can occur in applications where iron and steel parts wear against each other in a system.
Each magnet insert is available with either 1 or 3 magnetic bars with 2 options for magnet strength (15 strength standard barium-ferritor 90 strength rare earth). A stainless steel 316 cage surrounds the magnets to keep from falling against the sides of the bag or strainer basket.
