Magnetic separation system from Erga

These offer users high levels of efficiency and low energy consumption in comparison with electromagnetic separators, say developers.
The technical parameters of the separators can be modified according to customer requirements. Separated material fractions can vary between 0.1 and 100 mm while outputs can range from 0.1 to 250 tonnes per hour.
The separators are designed as horizontal belt transporters, with a magnetic system located inside the pulley. The magnetic drum is installed in the upper part of the conveyor frame: its diameter varies between 240 and 450 mm while its length depends on the width of the conveyor. The principle of operation is basically separation of magnetic and non-magnetic materials by a field generated by permanent magnets based on Nd-Fe-B rare-earth materials.
Ferromagnetic materials are drawn to the surface of the drum under the influence of a powerful magnetic field and are held there until the conveyor belt leaves the surface of the drum. Then, the magnetic field disappears and ferromagnetic materials are discharged into a container while non-magnetic materials continue on for further processing at a tangent to the surface of the drum.
