Wet Drum Magnetic Separators

Wet Drum Magnetic Separators

Drum separator is a very common feature in any mining industry. There are two types of magnetic drum separators, one, dry permanent magnetic drum separator and second wet drum magnetic separator. The drum magnetic separator handles wet inputs from which magnetic material have to be separated. There are many names by which it is called they are Wet Drum Permanent Separators,Wet Drum Magnetic Separators,Wet Drum Separators,Low Intensity Magnetic Separator (LIMS) & Wet Magnetic Drum. The main aim of the magnetic separator is to recover the maximum amount of ferrous by using the intensity of the permanent magnet. Our drum separator is fitted with high intensity magnets which effectively carry out the separation process.

The magnetic separator assembly has fixed magnet inside the rotating drum. When the liquid input is fed into the low intensity magnetic separator (LIMS) all particles which are ferrous in nature, even the low intensity elements are attracted by permanent magnet which is placed within the drum and carried along with the rotating drum to be separated from the main stream. The rest of the liquid with particles showing no attraction to the intensity of the magnet are disposed out through separate exit point.


  • Exceptional recovery of low intensity magnetic substance
  • Recover with high magnetic concentration
  • Efficient magnets with high performance
  • Sturdy structure
  • Ability to work with very less or no down time
  • Minimum attention
  • Low maintenance cost
  • Long lasting

With so many features to be proud of, the Wet drum Magnetic separators would be a one time investment lasting for a decade and more. Further one should also be well informed of the complete working and the influencing factors to efficiently manage the unit and retrieve highest returns.

Persuading factors:

Strength of the magnet - magnetic strength influences the end result, so its important that adequate study is done on calculating the needed field strength. Feeds differ from one processing plant to the other hence being well informed is mandatory.

Flow rate: The rate at which the flow is introduced is important as this has a direct impact on the quantity of ferrous substance collected. Checks have to be done in determining the hydraulic speed.

Viscous Nature The stickiness of the slurry will determine the output to a great extent,Ferrous proportion- If the iron content of the feed is more, then the drum with greater span has to be considered.

All the above mentioned factors thought they have an influence on final outcome it can be efficiently managed by predetermining them before procurement of equipment. Drums with different widths are available to match requirements. Wet drum permanent separators are extensively used in coal and iron processing units. The ability to handle huge volumes in the most rugged situations makes low intensity magnetic separator for liquid separation a successful model in spite of the stiff competitions faced.

Up gradation of models to suite changing demands is a regular feature at Star Trace and you can be sure of purchasing the latest technology with us.

Wet Drum Permanent separator

Star Trace Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is an enterprising organization which has a number of equipment designed to perfection. One among them is the wet drum permanent separator. The raw material or feed is a wet substance mixed with water which contains magnetic substance and have to be separated to benefit from it. To facilitate the process of separation wet drum permanent separator can be put to use. Like the drum separator wet drum separator is also used. There is a permanent magnet that is stationary and over this is a freely moving cylinder. The magnetic field exerts its strength through the moving cylinder and the floating ferrous particles are attracted to the drum. Upon being relieved of magnetic intensity they slide to collection compartment and from there further processing happens which is the next stage. Wet drum permanent separator finds its application in ceramic, mining, glass, fertilizer etc.

Wet Drum Separators

Star Trace being one of the fore runners in the field of magnets has contributed a lot by implementing latest technologies which have revolutionized the way separation was handled as well as in dealing with environment friendly methods of disposal. Drum separators either dry or wet work with similar mechanisms. It consist of a drum which can freely rotate, inside the drum is a stationary semicircular magnet. The drum along with other components is stationed inside a tank which will be fed with slurry. Once the slurry enters the magnetic field they are captured on to the face of the drum and released into collection tank when relieved of magnetic intensity.

Few of the industries which deploy wet drum separators are,

  • Glass
  • Fertilizer
  • Ceramic
  • Mining etc.

The magnetic separation thus employed is one of the most effective means which involves low maintenance, easy installation, best output rate with no or minimum down time.

Low Intensity Magnetic separator

Low Intensity magnetic separators are high in capacity and are employed to deal with wet inputs. These are mostly involved in magnetite concentration and scalping of ferromagnetic substances. Being similar to dry magnetic separator they have sturdy built up drum which is capable of rotating and a semicircular magnet which is stationary. The position of the magnet can be adjusted to suite the working environment. Attracting the irony particles in the slurry and releasing them in separation chamber is the working of the Low intensity magnetic separator.

The effectiveness is influenced by factors like size of the particles in the slurry, the temperature present and the concentration level. Star Trace has designed the low intensity magnetic separator taking into account the influencing factors and producing the maximum result in such an environment. Our experience and a keen eye for detailing has always kept us ahead in healthy competitions.


‘Low Intensity Magnetic Separators’ is abbreviated asLIMS. Star Trace has twenty five years of experience in the field and have developed a style of working that best suites the industry. Valuable suggestions pertaining to choosing the right kind of equipment with specific dimensions and combinations for effective output are given by experienced staff which helps startups to begin with a bang.

The LIMS consists of a tank, rotating drum, fixed semicircular magnet, outlets to collect the discharge, electrical connections and other moving parts. The working happens when the drum starts rotating and pulls all magnetically active substances to itself and carries it to a separate discharge point. This happen for each rotation and the process continues without down time.

Few of the industries that use LIMS are mining, fertilizer, ceramics, glass etc. One can find our equipment in almost all industries as we are known for quality, trust and cost effectiveness.
