    Default Magnetic Coolant Filter - FA800

    So I had a magnetic tube grate made for the coolant tank of an FA800, but the chips keep pulling around the grate ends and it becomes a safety hazard. Don't have space for an electromagnetic separator. Has anyone come across an easy to clean tube style grade that could drop into a coolant tank?

    Thanks!

    I use a 20" well-pump filter, 5 microns.
    In the return gutters, I place wooly air filter media, chips don't make it to the sump.
    I haven't piled magnets in there, but will since you brought it up.

    Actually, from your post I had the A-HA moment. Wrap the magnets in filtration media! Most of the stuff on hand is a pleated poly or flat woven poly. Going to give it a shot Monday. Thanks!
