Magnetic Separators

Multotec supplies a complete range of magnetic separation equipment that effectively separates ferromagnetic and paramagnetic particles from dry solids or slurries. Magnetic separators are renowned for their separation of magnetic ore; they can also serve as an electromagnet – effective for removing tramp metals, providing the ideal solution for magnetic separation in mineral processing.

Multotec engineers a range of customised magnetic separation solutions for mining processes, that help to improve the efficiency of downstream processing and reduce production costs. These are the reasons why Multotec’s magnetic separators are used in mineral processing plants worldwide.

Multotec magnetic separators:

  • Recover up to 99.99% in DMS applications
  • Recover fine particles down to 15 microns
  • Flexible magnetic recovery options for wet & dry slurries
  • Incorporate oil-cooled electromagnets that increase efficiency
  • Are manufactured in overbelt widths that meet all standard & international sizes up to 2 400 mm for tramp metal recovery applications

5 Top Features of the Wet Drum Magnetic Separators

  • Trash screen on the feed side
  • Permanently feed jacking spanner
  • Produce clarified water
  • Optional ceramic lining on drum tank surface
  • High availability

5 top benefits of the Wet Drum magnetic separators

  • Prevents large particles from blocking the tank
  • Allows optimal setting of the high-performance magnetic arc relative to the discharge lip, thus, allowing flexibility in operation to achieve optimal recovery of up to 99.9%
  • This water can be re-used on drain & rinse screens, reducing water consumption
  • Increased wear life of up to eight years, thus, reducing the cost of ownership
  • The equipment is mechanically engineered to provide the highest possible availability, through high structural integrity (reducing the risk of mechanical failures) & maintenance friendly design

The complete range of Magnetic Separation solutions

Whether you need to recover fast-moving tramp metal, valuable metals in waste streams, or enhance the beneficiation of ferrous metals, Multotec has the magnetic separator you require.

By improving the material fed to downstream plant processes, our magnetic separators reduce the mechanical requirements of grinding, ultimately lowering the overall cost.

Our heavy media drum separators are ideally suited for dense media separation plants. Our ferromagnetic wet drum separators can be used in iron ore separation plants in both rougher or cleaner beneficiation applications.

We also provide demagnetising solutions that reverse the residual effects that magnetic separation has on the magnetic viscosity of ferrous slurries, allowing them to return the mineral stream to an acceptable viscosity for downstream processing. These demagnetising coils generate a magnetic field that alters magnetic orientation at 200 Hz.

Innovations in Magnetic Separation

The trend towards larger and faster travelling conveyors in the African mining industry has highlighted the vital role of conveyor belt magnets (overbelt magnets) and magnetic separator conveyors for separation purposes.

When installing our magnetic separator solutions, our engineers and technicians ensure that factors like belt speed & width, belt troughing angle, burden depth, material and bulk density, expected tramp metal specifications, ambient operating temperatures, and suspension height are optimised. This ensures that our magnetic separators provide maximum plant- and cost-efficiency.

Multotec manufactures and supplies complete overbelt magnet separator systems and turnkey separator services, including gantry work, through our strategic partners.
