Magnetic Drum Separators

Magnetic Drum separators utilize a stationary magnetic core within a rotating outer shell.

Magnetic Drum Separator Applications

Magnetic Drum Separators are used to separate metal particles from slurries, granules or powders. These industrial magnets work on a high-volume basis for applications where there is a great deal of continuous turnover of product. These continuous self-cleaning drum magnets are ideal for applications where there is a high level of ferrous and para-magnetic contamination.

As material is introduced to the drum surface, a magnetic field attracts ferrous material to the rotating outer drum. This action continually conveys the captured ferrous material out of the product flow to the ferrous discharge area creating a self-cleaning action.

Common uses for magnetic drum separators include magnetite recovery in heavy media mining circuits, tramp metal extraction, and product purification.
