Magnetic drum separators automatically and continuously separate large quantities of ferrous particles from bulk product flows. Several types even separate weakly magnetic particles.
For coarse products and bulk flows
High capacity (up to 550 m³/h)
Suitable for sharp or abrasive particles
Magnet segment in rotating drum
Adjustable magnetic field
Magnetic drum separators
A drum magnet consists of a stationary magnet segment, around rotates a stainless steel shell with cleats. The product flow falls over the shell, while the magnet attracts the ferromagnetic metal particles in the product. Cleats on the shell carry the captured metal particles to the underside of the drum, outside the magnetic field. There the separated particles drop off and can be collected and/or carried away. This is often achieved through use of a separation plate.
Through the use of various magnetic systems, it is possible to capture both ferromagnetic ('strongly magnetic') and weakly magnetic particles.
