Drum Magnets recycling 6000 Gauss

The 6000 Gauss drum magnet for recycling, with its high magnetic strength, is suitable for separation of paramagnetic and weakly magnentic particles from a continuous material flow. Stainless steel that has been processed by a shredder has these slightly magnetic properties, for example, and can therefore be separated in this manner.

This high intensity separator is also used for the removal of very fine ferromagnetic (Fe) particles from ceramic powders.

6000 or 9000 Gauss drum magnet? The 9000 Gauss unit is used for smaller maximum thicknesses than the 6000 Gauss drum magnet. The 9000 Gauss is not really intended for separation of ferromagnetic particles; as such, these should not be present except very sporadically. The 6000 Gauss can separate (very fine) ferromagnetic particles and also has a thicker, robuster shell.


Removal of weakly magnetic particles from
0.5 mm
Removal of Fe particles from
0.1 mm
Cleaning Fully automatic and continuous during production process
Magnet system Stationary magnet segment inside rotating drum
Magnet quality
Neodymium – 6000 Gauss on the drum surface
Magnetic field depth Approx. 150 mm

  • Durable coating on drum
  • Housing with separation plate
  • Vibratory feeder
  • Ex II 3D version, suitable for ATEX zone 22 external
Working principle The ferromagnetic or weakly magnetic particles are pulled against the drum, drawing them out of the product flow. Cleats on the drum then carry these particles outside the magnetic field, where they automatically fall off.
