Drum Magnets

Drum Magnet Separators are designed for continuous removal of ferrous contaminants from High-Flow granular and Bulk Materials.  They are used in Gravity Free-Fall applications.

Drum Magnet in Housing

Drum magnets are available with or without the housing shown in the photo. When material flows onto the rotating drum magnet, a stationary magnetic assembly inside the drum’s shell captures tramp metal and holds it securely to the drum’s stainless steel surface. The good product falls freely to a discharge point. As the drum rotates, cleats sweep the captured ferrous debris through and out of the magnetic field and it falls away to a separate discharge area, creating continuous self-cleaning separation (see animation below).
