A Magnetic Separator attracts, captures and holds magnetic particles.  The magnetic strength needed to successfully separate such problematic ferrous metal contamination is commonly stated in a magnetic separator supplier’s quotation or specified in the tender.  This ‘Magnetic Strength’ is usually referenced in terms of ‘Gauss’, a unit of measurement.  However, as it is difficult to accurately measure…

Iron-Specked_Ceramic_Tableware-0537

Fine iron and iron-bearing minerals cause visual and structural defects in ceramic tableware.  Such contamination appears as small dark spots on the surface or is hidden within the body and causes premature cracking of the ceramic.  The cup, saucer or plate is then either rejected or reworked. The problem of iron contamination is not new. …

Market stall mineral in India

Effectively separating fine iron from dry powders is often challenging. Even the strongest magnetic separator may fail to successfully remove the magnetic particles. In order to find a successful solution, it is important to understand the way fine materials behave. Only then is it possible to determine the optimum method to cleanse a powder of…
