Five Magnetic Separator Myths

Often ascertaining the best Magnetic Separator for any given application is not straightforward.  To complicate the decision-making process further, many companies supplying magnetic separators provide a wealth of information such as Gauss levels and the amount of metal that the Magnetic Separator can actually capture. Such details are often difficult to verify and may even be meaningless. In this…

The Crusher’s Arch Enemy – Tramp Metal

Tramp Metal Villain

Crushing quarried aggregate is a key process stage of most quarries and when recycling demolition waste.  Effectively protecting the crusher from rogue tramp metal damage prevents production losses and repair costs. The wide range of available crushing technology enables the production of optimally sized aggregate.  Whereas Jaw and Gyratory designs commonly feature as primary crushers,…

Electromagnetic Filters for Ceramics

Electromagnetic Filters for Ceramics

Since the first ceramics were produced, iron and iron-bearing minerals have caused defects.  The problematic minerals occur naturally in the raw materials, with additional fine iron accidentally introduced during transportation, storage or processing. Effective removal often involves several stages of magnetic separation.  However, the introduction of High-Intensity Electromagnetic Filters proved ground-breaking in terms of removing…
