Magnetic Drum Separator

Magnetic technology

a flexible solution

IFE magnetic drum separators are used to separate tramp iron from bulk material of all kind. Bulk material is fed via a chute or vibrating feeder to the separator and is conveyed by the roatation of the drum casing. Magnetic particles are attracted by the internal permanent magnet, whereas nonmagnetic particles follow their flight path determined by interia and gravity. The attracted material is conveyed by the drum shell to the end of the magnetic field and dropped to the other side of an adjustable splitter.

Product Highlights.



IFE magnetic drum separators are adapted tailor-made to the individual application. Drum separators with radial oriented magnetic fields are most suitable for interlinked material, as the pole changes on the casings surface allow for circulation and therefor open the links to set nonmagnetic particles free.
An axial oriented magnetic field is generated by magnetic discs and is most suitable for non-linked material with high feed rates.

IFE belt drum separators are used for recovery of metallic fractions from various slags and for concentration of iron ore. The extremely robust design decreases downtime and is allows for tailor-made applications. IFE belt drum separators are available with electromagnets or permanent magnets or combinations thereof.
