Magnetic Separator is a machine in which magnetically susceptible material is extracted from a mixture using a magnetic force. This separation technique can be useful in mining iron as it is attracted to a magnet. Magnetic Separators that used permanent magnets could generate fields of low intensity only. These machines were capable of treating 10 tons of ore a day.
There are two types of Pulley / Drum Systems are available :
- Permanent Magnetic Pulley / Drum
- Electromagnetic Pulley / Drum
