Bunting Magnetics Co.: Magnetic Drum Separators
May 8, 2001
Self-cleaning magnetic drums and drum separators manufactured by Bunting Magnetics Co. provide continuous removal of ferrous contaminants from a wide range of free-flowing bulk and granular materials in high-volume applications. The magnetic drums are made of stainless steel and feature cleats to aid in sweeping ferrous debris into, through and out of the magnetic field. As material flows into the drum, a stationary magnetic assembly inside the unit's shell captures tramp metal and holds it securely to the drum's stainless steel surface. With contaminants removed, the product falls freely to a discharge point. As the drum rotates, the tramp metal is discharged separately, creating continuous self-cleaning separation.
