Comment Separation Processes

Separate metal particles from powders and granulates

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company recently launched a rotating Cleanflow magnetic separator (photo) suitable for installation in free-fall lines in a continuous process. Cleaning takes place without stopping the product flow. During the cleaning cycle, the magnets stay in the product flow. This guarantees the user that no iron falls back into the product during cleaning, something that was regularly a problem with other systems. The unit can be used in the chemical, ceramic, plastic and recycling industries, among others. In the latter case, it is used to make plastic or rubber granules metal-free. The magnetic bars in the Cleanflow magnetic separator filter metal particles and paramagnetic particles from 30 μm out of powders and granular products. The separator is suitable for high-capacity product flows (up to approximately 60 m3/h) and distinguishes itself by the very high magnetic flux density of over 9,000 Gauss at the contact surface of the bars. — Goudsmit Magnetic Systems BV, Waalre, the Netherlands
