Wet drum separator

Magnetic technology

for reclaiming magnetic particles

IFE wet drum separators are used to regenerate magnetizable media, to extract particles out of suspensions and to concentrate iron ore. The drum separator maximizes the gain on magnetic media or highest separation of magnetizable particles as a concentrate respectively.

Product Highlights.



If ferromagnetic material such as FeSi or magnetite are exposed to a magnetic field, some remanent magnetism remain causing flakes to be generated out of the fines. IFE demagnetization coils are used to prevent the generation of such flakes. A typical application is a swim-sink-system, where regenerated heavy media shall be reused.

Based on the application and material tests wet drum separators in special design for highest throughputs are selected by IFE specialists. In certain cases doubled feedrates are achievable.
