ELECTRO FLUX Magnetic drum separators offer the highest level of magnetic strength and are appropriate for many different applications, including scrap processing, auto shredding, mining, aggregate, or anywhere large volumes of metal need to be removed The concept of Magnetic Drum Separator is very simple - material is fed to a rotating shell revolving around a stationary magnet. Ferrous metal remains on the shell surface until it passes from the magnetic field - separating it from the normal trajectory of the nonferrous material. The design of the Drum Separator features a continuously self-cleaning magnet, which can be provided as the drum only or as a complete assembly with the housing & drive included. Material to be processed enters the top of the drumseparator 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.
