Magnetic Separators

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.

Dry drum cobber magnetic separators play a vital role in enhancing the efficiency of mineral processing plants, facilitating an initial upgrade of feed material as well as providing an initial gangue material rejection stage. By upgrading – and thus reducing the overall quantity of – the material fed to downstream plant processes, our magnetic separation solutions reduce the mechanical requirements of grinding, ultimately lowering overall costs. 

Our heavy media drum separators are ideally suited for dense media separation plants. Our Ferro-magnetic wet drum separators can be used in iron ore separation plants in both rougher or cleaner beneficiation applications. Our eddy current separators work to separate non-ferrous metals from other materials in urban mining applications.

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