Ceramic & Powder Handling Industry – Magnetic Applications
To remove fine ferrous particle from ceramic slips and glazes different types of powerful magnetic separators are used. These magnetic separators are equipped with powerful rare earth or ferrite magnets that are capable of removing even the minutest possible tramp iron.
Different types of magnetic separators like drum separators, plate magnets , suspended magnets etc. are used for separating small powdery substance from magnetic fines. Ferrous fines when enter into the magnetic fields of the separator gets attracted towards the magnets and the purified materials are collected separately.
Configuration of different magnetic separators are different though their functions are same. Suspended magnets are installed above the conveyors whereas plate magnets are installed within a chute or over a conveyor.
