Abstract:

Magnetic drain plugs have been in use for over thirty years and have developed from simple magnets to self indicating devices. The purpose of this paper is to review the debris transfer from the magnetic plug and suggest procedures to reduce the operator effort, increase the efficiency of the debris transfer and to improve measurement repeatability. Three new procedures are also proposed for review 1 the fitting of a plastic or metallic sheath, 2 neutralization of the magnetic attraction, and 3 the use of wax to remove the debris.
