Laboratory Electro Magnetic Drum Separator (Wet Process):
When a stream of ore particles is continuously passed through a field of magnetic force, the magnetic particles are attracted towards the source of magnetic force while the non-magnetics travel unaffected. The processing materials enter the top of the magnetic drum separator and flows across the surface of the drum. The rotating drum in the magnetic field captures the ferrous tramps whereas nonferrous falls free from the drum into the cleaned material flow. As the drum rotates, the ferrous metal so captured is carried past the diverter and released outside of the magnetic field.
