Magnetic Drum Separator

Product Description

  • Magnetic Drum Separators are of self-cleaning type and provide continuous removal of ferrous contamination from a wide range of free-flowing bulk and granular materials in high-volume applications.
  • Drums can be ordered with or without housing.
  • Magnetic Drum Separator system is a complete machine with Stainless Steel 304 / 316
    Housing & Drive system. Only drum separator unit can also be supplied.
  • The Drum Separators are available in two types:
    High Intensity – (Ndfeb Magnet – 4500 gauss), for Operating Temperature of 80˚C(Max.)
    Low Intensity - (Ferrite Magnet - 1200 gauss), for Operating Temperature of 250˚C(Max.)
  • Ferrous fine particles, nuts, bolts, pins, nails and other tramp metal from free-flowing granular material can be arrested effectively.

How to use Magnetic Drums?

Drum Seperator Drawing no-4
Drum Separator drawing no-3

When material flows onto the drum, a stationary magnetic assembly inside the unit's shell captures tramp metal and holds it securely to the drum's stainless steel surface. With contaminants removed, the good product falls freely to a discharge point. As the drum rotates, cleats sweep the ferrous debris through and out of the magnetic field. The tramp metal is discharged separately, creating continuous self-cleaning separation

Features:

Magnetic Drums have the following features:

  • Designed for continuous separation and self cleaning. Ideal for high-flow, heavy-contamination applications. It comes with Stainless steel drum and mild steel or stainless steel housings
  • Maximum Recovery of Ferrous Metals
  • Minimum Maintenance
  • They require minimum space and are simple to operate.
  • They are flexible enough to be applied for various purposes

Advantages: 

  • Helps in removing ferrous particles from any non ferrous powder and granules
  • Ideal for plastic, food, fertilizer, pharmaceutical, chemical, glass and continuous process plants
  • Provide utmost protection to crushers, grinders, pulverizes, and allied equipment
  • Can be used for mining and ore dressing industry
  • Eliminate fire hazards and explosions in plants dealing with explosive material.
  • Save money, time and labour by reducing break-down time and improving quality

Construction:

The magnetic drum separator consists of a rotating drum and stationary drum magnet designed as per the specific needs of the customer. The Drum separator is supplied with drive system and SS 304/316 housing along with feed regulating valve.
