Magnetic Drum Separators



IMI's Magnetic Drum Separators provide ferrous metal removal from dry, bulk products in free-flowing processing systems.

Due to the nature of their design, magnetic drum separators are continuously self-cleaning units, and can be provided as the drum only or as a complete assembly with the housing and drive included.

Material to be processed enters the top of the magnetic drum separator and flows across the surface of the drum. As the drum shell rotates around the stationary magnetic field, all non-ferrous product, which is unaffected by the magnet, falls free from the drum into the cleaned material flow. Any ferrous tramp metal is captured by the magnetic field and held on the drum's surface. As the drum rotates, the metal is carried past the diverter and released outside of the magnetic field.
