The MAGQUIP Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS) is a high gradient magnet used for the concentration of slurries containing weakly magnetic minerals.
The magnetic separation of paramagnetic minerals demands a high magnetic field gradient as well as a high magnetic flux density. For wet magnetic separation the best arrangement is a closely pitched matrix assembly rotating between the jaws of a powerful electromagnet with the aim being to achieve magnetic saturation in the matrix.
In a well-designed magnet circuit this simultaneously produces maximum field intensity and magnetic gradient (Force Index or Force Factor) in the air spaces between the elements of the matrix, our HIW WHIMS meets these conditions. Background magnetic flux density range from 3,500-16,500 gauss in the open-air gap which translate more than 20,000 gauss in the matrix.
The MAGQUIP WHIMS is available in a single, two pole or four pole single rotor configuration or as an eight-pole double rotor assembly.
Will separate particle size material from 30 microns to 2 mm with tonnage up to 160 tph.
