Without doubt, the greatest advance in the field of magnetic separation was the development of continuous WHIMSs . These devices have reduced the minimum particle size for efficient magnetic separation compared to dry high intensity methods.
Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator WHIMS Laboratory / Pilot Scale Separator Twin feed point unit suitable for batch or closed loop operation The Reading WHIMS set the industry benchmark for magnetic separation of fine minerals. They afford the most efficient separation of minerals in slurry form, when drying of the material is undesirable or ...
Paramagnetic minerals are weakly attracted into a magnetic field and diamagnetic minerals are weakly repelled by a magnetic field. Thus, if a mixture of paramagnetic and diamagnetic minerals is passed through a magnetic field, they will be pulled into the field or repelled from the field and may be separated. Furthermore, paramagnetic minerals with different degrees of paramagnetism can be separated from one another in the same way. The device used to separate ...
the separator instead of flowing out into the compartment designed to receive thc more magnetic fraction. It is desirable. therefore, first to remove metallic iron, mag netite, franklinite, and perhaps pyrrhotite, by means of a hand magnet. Control of the path taken by an!. one mineral is obtaincd by varying the intensity
Temperature limitations. Dry magnetic separators suffer from temperature limitations, either because the rare earth magnets suffer irreversible loss of magnetism at elevated temperatures, or because the materials used in electromagnets cannot withstand intense heat.
Magnetic separators can be found in most mineral processing operations, especially those processing non metallic minerals and magnetic ores. This article investigates the use of high intensity magnetic separators and magnetic separation equipment in the minerals sector with a focus on processing dry materials .
198 HEAVY MINERALS 2007 Dry magnetic separators, including both drum and roll types, generally offer far more precise separations than wet magnetic separators. Dry magnetic separation is more controllable since the separation medium is air rather than water. Separating particles from one another is naturally
The magnetism of nonmagnetic minerals is very small. At present, the magnetic separator can not realize mineral processing, so it is called non magnetic mineral. NOTE: With the development of magnetic separation technology, the boundary between weak magnetic minerals and non magnetic minerals will change. The lower limit of the magnetization coefficient of weak magnetic minerals is decreasing, which is the inevitable trend of the development of magnetic separation.
