Rare-earth magnetic separators: A cure for hard-to-remove contaminants
Ferrous contaminants [known as tramp iron], including particles that are only weakly magnetic or are very fine, affect your product's purity and can damage your process equipment. Yet conventional magnetic separators can't efficiently remove weakly magnetic or very fine iron contaminants. Rare-earth magnetic separators provide several advantages for removing these kinds of contaminants. This article provides information about rare-earth magnetic separators, their operation, and their applications.
If removing ferrous material using a magnetic separator is part of your processing operation, then you already know that magnetic separators improve the purity of your product and can protect your machinery. But you may not know that in the last 5 years, suppliers have developed rare-earth magnetic separators with more capabilities and advantages than conventional separators. The following ten questions and answers provide information about rare-earth magnetic separators and can help you decide if they will benefit your processing operation.
