Magnetic drum separator
When extracting primary raw materials in open-cast and underground mining, it is important to move large quantities and create perfectly processed intermediate products. Due to the variety, the applications require tailor-made solutions. Long-lasting devices are required, that can withstand harsh conditions for decades. For this purpose, IFE offers individual machines but also complete solutions consisting of (hopper) discharge feeders, grates and (classifying) screens, but also magnetic separators.
The high-tech mining company LKAB is one of Sweden's oldest industrial companies and in its ore facilities many heavy duty vibrating feeders and screening machines from IFE Aufbereitungstechnik GmbH are used...
In the mining industry, electromagnetic drive units are commonly used for vibrating feeders. Nevertheless, there are special situations in which drives reach their limits due to e.g. structural limitations or customer requirements.
