Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators for Dry Materials

SG Frantz F2 Electromagnetic Separator Wet GridesOur Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators for Dry Materials are designed for separating fine ferromagnetic particles present as 1% (weight) or less of the material to be processed. The standard vane type grids are normally utilized for dry material separation. However, for moderately free-flowing materials, we can manufacture a unit that utilizes the same proprietary grids normally used for wet separations. Matrices comprised of wet-type grids have many times the cumulative length of collecting edges than those found in vane-type grids, allowing for better separation.  With a unique assembly of grids and a different vibration pattern, such materials can be more effectively processed. A single pass through a matrix of wet grids is equivalent to several passes through a matrix of vane-type grids.

Magnetic background fields measured in the empty separating space (with pole pieces, but without the matrix in place) are approximately 2,500 gauss. Average background magnetizing field measured in the separating chamber with the pole pieces and matrix in place is 3,790 gauss, more than twice the background field intensity of the F1 units. Magnetic fields at the matrix edges, where separation occurs, are nearly 23,000 gauss at the upper edges of the vanes and over 19,500 gauss at their lower edges.

How the F2 Electromagnetic Separator for Dry Materials Works

  1. Material is fed into a hopper or hub.
  2. Material is processed through a stack of alternately inclined parallel gridspouring over each vane onto the face of the grids below (if wet-type grids are used, material is processed straight through, pouring over multiple edges).
  3. Collecting edges attract and hold the ferromagnetic particles.
  4. Material is discharged through the bottom hub (on both units).
