Summary

Electromagnetic separators of the correct flow capacity installed at the ideal locations will reduce rejections due to iron spotting of the ware. The separation equipment has to be maintained, especially the matrix, to continue efficient magnetic separation. Viscosity of the slurry, velocity of the slurry through the separating matrix, and susceptibility of the particles to be removed have to be taken into consideration when selecting an electromagnetic separator for an application. Selection of magnetic separators with higher operating pressures and/or higher field intensities often results in improved operations and efficiencies.
