Mining and Mineral Processing
Most mines and mineral processing operations have one or more Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors to both remove/detect tramp metal (preventing process equipment damage) and to purify and enhance the quality of ores.
- In Mining, heavy duty magnetic separators are used to remove large tramp metal from mined ores and to separate magnetic ores. This is achieved using
- In Mineral Processing, high intensity magnetic separators are applied to purify non-metallic minerals and separate minerals of varying magnetic susceptibility. Typically, equipment includes
Bunting’s Customer Experience Centre (Redditch, UK) has one of the world’s most complete laboratories for high-intensity magnetic separation for the mineral processing and mining industry. Customers are invited to contact us to arrange controlled tests to determine separation capabilities. Find out more on:
In several technical articles, Professor Neil Rowson explains the application of high-intensity magnetic separation in the mineral processing industry:
