Benefits of Multotec Dry Magnetic Drum Separators:

Dry Magnetic Drum Separators:

Dry Drum Magnetic Separators facilitate a more efficient milling and processing operation, achieved through an initial upgrade of the desired feed material. Multotec’s Dry Drum Magnetic 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. 

  • 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


Heavy Media Drum Separators:

The Multotec Heavy Media Drum Separator (HMDS) improves grade and recovery in dense medium recovery processes. The Multotec HMDS utilise Ferrite Boron (FeB) magnets to increase magnetic induction values from the conventional 2 000 nominal Gauss to 2 500 or 3 000 Gauss, allowing a stronger attraction of dense media for a more efficient recovery process.

  • 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


Wet Magnetic Drum Separators:

Engineered specifically for the 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. 

  • 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
Multotec helps the world’s largest mining companies achieve optimum plant process efficiency with a complete range of mineral processing equipment.
