Wet Magnetic Drum Separator 911metallurgist
The high-gradient element, as the name implies, is designed to produce a very high field gradient and subsequently a high attractive force. Several identical agitating magnetic poles comprise the element. The poles are placed together minimizing the intervening air gap to produce the high surface gradient. Due to the high gradient, the attractive force is strongest closer to the drum making it most effective when utilized with a relatively low material burden depth on the drum surface and, thus, a lower unit capacity. A high-gradient magnetic circuit is shown in Figure 4.
