Magwell Industries

Wet Drum Separator.

MAGWELL Wet Permanent Magnetic Separator is designed to handle the demands of increased production rates without adding additional drums to your circuit. The drum utilizes a wider arc magnet to increase retention time for maximum magnetic recovery. The interpole magnet arrangement allows for numerous polarity changes to improve the cleaning of recovered magnetic.

Operating Principle:

The liquid flows through a semi-circular separating chamber beneath a stainless steel drum to which the magnetisable particles are attracted. The strong, high-gradient magnetic field is created by a cylinder consisting of permanent magnetic discs positioned within the drum. These special permanent magnets generate particularly high field gradients which are necessary for successful separation, as is the need with all Magnetic-Separators.

Wet Drum Separator

For recovering Magnetic/Ferro-silicon in dense media plants and iron ores, wet drum separators are mainly used. They remove contamination from the product stream, increasing product purity and plant productivity. In the applications where the product purity is most essential, the wet drum separators can use powerful Rare Earth Magnets, which can remove very fine and weak contaminants even from dense materials.

A stationary, permanent magnet assembly is located inside of a rotating drum.This drum is housed in a complimentary tank with slurry flow paths that exposethe minerals to the magnetic field . Magnetic materials are pulled against the drum and move with it until they are outside of the magnetic field. The magnetic materials then fall away into the magnetic collector. Non-magnetic materials pass through the tank to the tailings discharge

Technical Specifications

Wet drum available in three different tank configurations:

  • Concurrent
