Sludge Barrier

Effective sludge and oil removal

The Sludge Barrier is a magnetic separation system that removes small ferrous particles and fines from the coolant tank. Sludge Barriers can be implemented in a new tank or retrofitted  to almost any existing coolant tank. The Sludge Barrier is ideal for steel, cast and/or ductile iron applications.
