Magnetic Drum Separators

Recover the maximum amount of magnetic medium, at the highest possible density, with magnetic drum separators from Multotec. Our magnetic drum separators are designed to remove large and small iron contaminants from material processing lines in the most efficient way.

Two types of magnetic drum separators from Multotec are available – magnetic dry drum separators and magnetic wet drum separators. Each range delivers a more productive plant for a lower cost per processed ton.

Our range of magnetic drum separators

Dry Drum Magnetic Separators and Longi-Multotec Heavy Media Drum Separators comprise our range of dry magnetic drum separators. They facilitate a more efficient milling and processing operation, achieved through an initial upgrade of the desired feed material. Multotec’s dry magnetic drum separators are ideal for rougher or primary beneficiation applications. They ensure optimum productivity by recovering highly magnetic material through their permanent magnet designs while, simultaneously discharging non-magnetic materials. 

Engineered for the wet magnetic drum separator demand is the Permax Wet Drum Magnetic Separator.  This wet magnetic drum separator provides performance exceeding that of conventional separators. A combination of a drum with a unique permanent magnet arrangement and a specially designed counter rotation tank, facilitate this exceptional performance. Our wet magnetic drum separator has the ability to recover magnetic particles from slurry with magnetic concentration of less than 0.1g/l. In addition, the magnetic particles in the overflow are not lost from the dilute medium circuit.

Multotec dry magnetic drum separator benefits

Multotec’s Dry Magnetic Drum Separators each have a number of unique benefits:

Dry Drum Magnetic Separators

  • Ideal for cobbing iron ore beneficiation or banded iron stone removal on a diamond plant
  • Upgrades material feed for enhanced productivity of milling and grinding
  • Flexible magnetic recovery options available

Longi-Multotec Heavy Media Drum Separators

  • Specially-engineered magnetic circuits facilitate the optimum use of rare-earth magnets
  • Axial pole configuration for improved recovered material grade
  • Optional polytetrafluoroethylene-lined butterfly valves in discharge pipes provide accurate level control

Multotec wet magnetic drum separator benefits

Permax Wet Drum Magnetic Separator

  • 900 mm Φ drum with 7 rpm rotational speed
  • High Volume flow rate up to 160 m³/h/per metre drum width
  • Direct drive requiring little or no maintenance

Our magnetic drum separators refine and enhance proven machine designs for improved separation efficiency. This is because of decreased utility requirements that deliver large savings to operational expenditure, with knowledge gained from our committed drive to research and development.

Magnetic separators from Multotec represent the leading industrial uses of magnetic forces within mineral processing applications. Our magnetic separators are designed around application specific magnetic circuits to provide wet and dry separation processing solutions. International mining houses such as Xstrata, Anglo Coal, BHP Billiton, OceanaGold, QM and Rio Tinto use Multotec’s equipment to reduce running costs and optimise plant performance.
