Metso Outotec introduced its magnetic separators portfolio consisting of wet and dry Low Intensity Magnetic Separators (LIMS) and High Gradient Magnetic Separators (HGMS). The portfolio is suitable for a variety of applications with its flexible modular design for separation selectivity and recovery of fine and ultra-fine particles.
The HGMS are designed to recover weakly magnetic material from non-magnetic matter and can be used for applications including the processing of iron ores, rare earths and other weakly magnetic minerals. The LIMS are part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive product offering. These separators use physical separation and don’t require chemicals to process. The LIMS feature modular design with several frames and process tank designs and use a common magnetic drum.
Metso Outotec also offers its SLon Vertically Pulsating High-Gradient Magnetic Separator (VPHGMS) for processing fine, weakly-magnetic minerals. The units are wet, high-intensity magnetic separators that use a combination of magnetic force, pulsating fluid and gravity to process minerals.
