Eriez says that the design of the Wet Drum Separators enables maximum magnetite recovery while operating with a minimum amount of wear and maintenance. Refinements in the magnetic circuit, tank design and drive system have resulted in further improvements in metallurgical performance and operation. Standard features include stainless steel construction and double row self-aligning ball bearings. There are various drive options available. Drive systems include synchronous (cog) belt and shaft mounted direct. Mill and chemical duty motors and Taconite seals are also available. Eriez Magnetic Drum Separators are available in several models to cater to different operational challenges. All Eriez Wet Drum Magnetic Separators receive a complete inspection to evaluate magnetic field profile, mechanical integrity and appearance. The separators undergo a ‘run–in’ period to assure efficient operation of the drive system.
