in this case where there is only 1 pipe symbol in it i would explode it.
list($part1,$part2) = explode("|",'withoutMinutes|400m');
echo $part1;//withoutMinutes
echo $part2;//400m

using preg_repalce() remove anything before | with empty
$str = 'withoutMinutes|400m';
$str = preg_replace('/.*\|/', '', $str);
print "$str\n";
