With the use of Filtertechnik ‘s Magnetic Suction Separators, suction line filtration is provided without starving the pump. They offer unique protection for pumps from all sizes of ferrous particles, some of which have the potential of destroying a pump in a single pass. Large ceramic magnets are spaced along the length of the separator. All hydraulic fluid entering the pump must move at low velocity through a powerful magnetic field. This field traps large quantities of micronic ferrous particles.
