Magnetic Drum Separator

in category: Magnets
magnetic drum inside housing

Magnetic Drum Separator removes ferrous metal from dry, free-flowing bulk solids. Drum Separator is self-cleaning and available with housing or as the magnetic drum only.

A uniform product flow is introduced to the Magnetic Drum Separator using a vibrating feeder. Bulk material enters the top of the housing and flows across the surface of the drum. As the drum shell rotates around the stationary magnetic field, all non-ferrous product which is uneffected by the magnet, falls free from the magnet into the cleaned material flow. All ferrous tramp metal is captured by the magnetic field and is held on the drum’s surface. As the drum rotates, the metal is carried past the diverter and released outside of the magnetic field.
