Training Future Metal Recyclers from EMR

Students, on a year’s work placement with European Metal Recycling (EMR), attended a training day at Bunting’s Redditch plant assessing the latest magnetic, eddy current and electrostatic separators.  The training illustrated the importance of optimising material separation in the drive towards increasing secondary material recycling rates. EMR is a global leader in sustainable materials, investing…

Magnetic Properties of Ceramic Minerals

Bunting Magnetics Bauma

Magnetic minerals and fine iron have plagued ceramic producers since the first glazed pot was produced many thousands of years ago.  Early ceramicists adopted elaborate and colourful patterns to cover any imperfections caused by such contamination.  Over time, the demand for white or single coloured ceramic products increased, making disguising any imperfection increasingly difficult. Ceramic…

Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separation Testing

Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separation Testing

The electromagnetic laboratory-scale Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS) removes fine magnetics and para-magnetics from mineral slurries.  Handling minerals in a slurry or suspension is preferable for many processors, especially when beneficiation involves wet processing.  Additionally, a wet process often produces a better separation for very fine materials. In this educational video, Professor Neil Rowson…

Mineral Processing Lab High Intensity Electromagnetic Filter

Electromagnetic Filter

A high intensity Electromagnetic Filter has expanded the mineral testing capabilities in the Bunting-Redditch mineral processing laboratory.  The Electromagnetic Filter is designed to remove fine iron and weakly magnetic materials from mineral slurries and ceramics slips and glazes.  The new equipment expands the extensive range of high intensity magnetic separators already used in the test…
