Radial Magnetic Field Bunting Magnetics

Rotary Magnetic Separators, such as the Drum Magnet and Pulley Magnet, are designed with a specific type of magnetic field.  The type of magnetic field is considered when looking at any application and when deciding which design will achieve a customer’s separation objective. For these rotary designs of magnetic separator, there are two types of magnetic…

The Induced Magnetic Roll Separator (IMR) has been used in the non-metallic mineral industry for decades.  However, the popularity of this high intensity magnetic separator dwindled after the development of the Rare Earth (RE) Roll Magnetic Separator in the late 70s early 80s.  Whereas the magnetic forces in an IMR were electromagnetically generated, high intensity…
