How does a magnetic drum separator work?

Magnetic Drum Separator Applications

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.

What is a drum magnet?

Rotating Drum Magnets are designed for continuous self-cleaning of metal contaminants from product flow streams. As product enters the housing inlet, an adjustable feed gate meters the flow of product to the drum face. The drum has a stationary, 180 degree arc, internal magnet, with an outer drum that rotates.

How does an eddy current separator work?

Eddy current separators remove nonferrous metals such as aluminum, die-cast metal, and copper from nonmetallic material. Material is fed onto the conveyor belt of the separator, which moves it across the magnetic rotor where separation occurs.

What is magnetic roll separator?

Induced Roll Magnetic Separator by Bunting

Most commonly, the induced roll separator is used to separate weakly magnetic or paramagnetic minerals from non-magnetic minerals when material is in a dry state. … While in operation, magnetic material attaches itself onto the roll face, or is deflected towards the roll.

Which ores are separated by magnetic separation method?

Only those ores can be concentrated by magnetic separation method in which either the ore particles or the impurities associated with it are of magnetic nature. For example, ores or iron such haematite (Fe2O3), magnetite (Fe3O4), siderite (FeCO3) are magnetic and can be concentrated by this method.
