The MAGQUIP RADMAX Low Intensity Wet Drum Separator with Radial Steel Pole magnet element and counter rotation style tank is the modern standard and most advanced wet drum magnetic separator technology deployed for medium recovery in dense media / heavy media separation plants [DMS].
The Low intensity wet drum separator functions to recover the ferromagnetic medium (magnetite or ferrosilicon) used in the separation vessels of the dilute medium circuit in a dense media / heavy media separation plant.
The RADMAX wet drum separator utilises a radial steel pole permanent magnet assembly with ferrite magnets sandwiched between steel poles allowing “flux concentration” and a resultant high gradient and field intensity [2000 gauss] on the drum shell ensuring maximum recovery of medium in a single stage / pass.
This special magnet design developed by Magnapower in the 1990s and coupled with a counter rotation tank allows slurry pulp volume capacities of up to 150 m³/h per metre of drum width with a 99.9% recovery. Concentrate densities achieved are 2.7 for magnetite and 3.6 for Ferrosilicon.
Tank styles and hydraulic configuration options include:
CR – Counter Rotation combined tailings underflow and overflow outlet
CRO – Counter Rotation + Overflow separate tailing underflow and overflow outlet [Clarified water]
CRM – counter rotation for high non magnetics loading
CRS – Counter Rotation with pulp Self Levelling
CC – Con-current
Standard range consists of 450, 600 and 900 mm drum diameters with magnet widths from 600 up to 3600 mm.
Custom sizes, pilot and lab scale versions are also available
