Difference between magnetic separator and iron separator

Magnetic separator and iron separator are aimed at substances containing iron. Some customers asked about the difference between the two. Today, engineer from Fodamon will explain the difference between the two. The iron remover can produce a strong magnetic field during operation, which has a strong attraction. It can effectively remove the mixed magnetic impurities in the materials, improve the quality of finished materials, and ensure the normal and stable operation of crushers, grinders and other equipment; At the same time, it can also prevent accidents caused by iron impurities scratching the belt in the process of conveying materials.

Iron remover is widely used in mining, coal preparation plant, metallurgy, glass, cement, ceramics and other industries. It can also be used in emerging waste treatment (recycling steel in waste).

The magnetic separator has high universality and wide daily application. It is very suitable for dry or wet magnetic separation of magnetite, roasted ore, ilmenite, manganese ore, hematite and other materials with particle size less than 50mm. It is also used for iron removal of coal, building materials, non-metallic minerals and other materials.

Magnetic separators are mostly made of better ferrite materials or composite with rare earth magnetic steel. Earlier, the average magnetic induction intensity on the surface of magnetic cylinder of magnetic separator was 80-400mt. With the continuous development of technology, after the magnetic separator can be made into roll shape, the magnetic field intensity has also increased to 1650mt, which is already the strong magnetic field measured at present.

Differences between magnetic separator and iron separator in application industry

Iron remover is mainly used in chemical industry, ceramic industry, etc. Materials containing a small amount of iron will affect the quality of finished products if they are not treated, so iron remover is needed to remove the iron first. The magnetic separator is mainly applicable to the selection of mineral iron substances after mining. The materials after mining contain a large amount of iron substances, such as hematite, which need to be selected before being put into production.

Differences in manufacturing technology between magnetic separator and iron separator

The magnetic separator is mainly composed of frame and magnetic mechanical accessories, and its manufacturing process is more complex than that of iron separator; The iron remover is mainly composed of a kind of permanent magnet material (ferrite, Nd-Fe-B, etc.) after special processing.

Different operation modes of magnetic separator and iron separator

During the iron removal of materials, the magnetic separator needs to rotate continuously to pick out the iron. The iron remover can easily remove iron without power operation.

In fact, strictly speaking, the difference between the two equipment is not too big. The main reason is that the iron separator is used to select the iron with less content in the mineral material, while the magnetic separator is used to select the iron with more iron in the material.
