Summary: Report commences with the executive summary of the magnetic separator market, which includes a summary of key findings and key statistics of the market.
The basic version of the magnetic separator was developed empirically and implemented in the form of a physical model, experimental studies of which confirmed its ability to operate [7].
Standard features include a Fanuc F31iB control with GriPS conversational software, twin opposing grinding spindles with 3-position turret, gap elimination, liquid-coolant system with integrated chiller and magnetic separator, X-axis scale, hydraulic swing-up dresser and a T-slot work table.
A magnetic separator has also been included to remove ferrous material.
Chromite/silica shakeout sand from these test molds was being segregated from the ECP-bonded olivine/silica production molds until the shutdown, when it could be processed through the new cooler/classifier for transport to the 35-ton silo located above the new magnetic separator. The magnetic separator is the crucial piece of equipment for the chromite/ silica reclamation system.
The CP 20/80 Magnetic Separator is a low cost self-cleaning cross belt permanent magnetic separator.
The topics include developing a new type of column magnetic separator, flotation mechanisms to separate potassium feldspar from quartz with an anion and cation mixed collector, the effect of bauxite moisture on high-pressure grinding roller crushing, preconcentration and separation capabilities of modified bentonite using dithizone for trace cobalt in water, synthetic silicone emulsion, and a sedimentation experiment on fine white slime water.
Selecting the proper magnetic separator requires an understanding of magnetic properties, the process application, and environmental elements in each specific installation.
