The function of magnetic separators is that they use magnetic material absorption property in a magnetic field to separate materials in different industries. The following are the types of separators.
- self-cleaning over band separator
- dry drum magnetic separator
- wet drum magnetic separator
- tube magnetic separator
- pulley magnet
- magnetic trap
- rod magnet separator
- grid magnet
- belt drum magnetic separator
Magnetic separators are used in a variety of industries, including the ferrous materials in mining industry, iron ore processing, cement, sand, plaster, brick and earthenware industries. Magnetic separators can also be used to separate micronized particles in tile industry, such as the separation of iron from silica. It is also widely used in ceramic and Chinese industries.
The use of separators is not confined to the mining industry and to gravels, but can also be used in areas such as the food industry, for example wheat, flour and animal feed. Magnetic separators are divided into two types of dry and wet, each with different field intensities.
