Rotary-style magnetic separator

April 9, 2013

 

The IMI Rare Earth RotoDrawer rotary-style, magnetic drawer-in-housing separator removes ferrous metal from powder and bulk processed products with difficult flow characteristics or a higher moisture content or particle size. It features a motorized, cylindrical configuration of rare earth magnetic tubes that continually rotate through a gravity-fed product stream. Splitter bars and the rotation of the tubes break up clumps of product and keep the flow moving through the housing while capturing ferrous metal contamination. Custom designs and sizes are available.
