Non-food powders, granulates & fibres
- Prevention of ferromagnetic contamination in your finished product.
- Prevention of avoidable damage to machines (injection-moulding machines, extruders, mixers, grinders and other equipment).
Due to the continuous cleaning, the magnetic drum separator is very suitable for product flows with heavy magnetic particle contamination. You can use them in free-fall pipelines, or after a vibrating chute in belt conveyors.
These drum magnets are industrially finished. They remove 1-5 mm ferrous impurities from all kinds of non-food powders and granulates.
Different types for different applications
These basic type magnetic drum separators in housing are suitable for high capacity coarser raw materials like granules and fibres in the plastics and ceramics industries. By default the magnetic drum is only available in 3000 gauss magnetic strength, which is sufficient in most cases.
- Our food type drum magnets in housing have a hygienic design to prevent against bacterial growth. Food type drum magnets are available by default in magnetic strengths 3000, 6000 and 9000 gauss. This enables them to filter larger to smaller ferrous and even weakly magnetic particles.
- Our pharma type drum magnets in housing have an extra high class hygienic design AND they are executed with a 12,000 gauss drum. This enables them to even filter the smallest ferrous, weakly and even paramagnetic particles such as: stones, mud, insect excrement, etc. from your dried raw materials (e.g. tea, spices).

Filtering and disposal of magnetic impurities
These drum magnets continuously and fully automatically separate ferrous particles, such as iron and steel.
A drum magnet is a stationary (180°) magnet segment, with a stainless steel rotating drum. The magnet attracts magnetic particles that are in the product. The drum carries the attached particles with it to the bottom of the drum. There the particles drop off and can be collected and carried away. For strongly magnetic particles, carriers are placed on the drum to ‘push’ the separated ferrous particles out of the magnetic field for further discharging.
The advantage of a drum magnet is that it is a continuous cleaning/separating system, in which it is not necessary to stop the product flow to remove the trapped magnetic particles.
