Due to the ring rotation the magnetic minerals are transferred to the nonmagnetic area of the ring and are discharged to the upper hopper by the water flow. The non magnetic particles are moved down to the lower hopper following the gap of the lower magnetic pole and the magnetic separation of magnetic minerals is completed.
Magnetic separation is the process by which magnetically susceptible material is separated from a mixture by the application of a strong magnetic field. Iron ores are usually subjected to the magnetic separation process, due to the high magnetic susceptibility of iron.
Apr 29, 20150183;32;Magnetic separation is most commonly used in the mining industry to separate tramp ore, or unwanted waste metals, from the rest of the bulk material. Tramp ore typically consists of the man made byproducts created by the mining process itself, such as wires from explosive charges, nuts and bolts, nails, broken pieces from hand tools such as jack hammers and drills or tips off of heavy
Lab scale or industrial implementations involve separation of macro and nanoparticles, cells, proteins, and macromolecules down to small molecules and ions. Most promising are those attempts where the object to be separated is attached to a strong magnetic nanoparticle.
