Double Drum Magnetic Separator – Separating Iron From Stainless Steel


Today’s waste streams more than often contain metals. These metals can cause damage and downtime when present in valuable materials.

Effective waste separation processes should be done to enhance overall separation quality, minimize material in landfill and protect valuable materials.

The separation of iron from stainless steel and other materials is a process that helps in separating the useful components from the waste materials.

Double Drum Magnetic Separators are used for the separation of iron from stainless steel materials. 

Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of quality Double Drum Magnetic Separators. We have more than 4 decades of experience helping industries find the right magnetic separation solution that fit the unique needs of their applications.

What is a Double Drum Magnetic Separator?

Double Drum Magnetic Separator is a self-cleaning unit that ensures the continuous removal of iron from free-flowing bulk and granular materials. The magnetic separator can continuously separate magnetic and non-magnetic materials with a purification rate of more than 98%.

It has a vast demand in a wide range of industries for iron separation from stainless steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, and more, due to its uninterrupted working capability in the long run.

Double Drum Type Magnetic Separators ensure the highest purity as the material passes twice through the magnet present in the machine.

Working principle of Double Drum Magnetic Separator:

Check how the magnetic separator works.

Double Drum Magnetic Separator consists of a stationary permanent magnetic assembly that has a uniform and long-lasting magnetic field across the drum’s entire width.  

The non-magnetic stainless steel drum shell revolves around the magnetic field. The material is fed evenly from the chute and falls over the drum, where powerful magnets attract ferrous particles and hold them in the rotating shell. 

While the ferrous particles are firmly held, the revolving shell carries the iron particles through the stationary magnetic field and lets the non-magnetic material falls freely away from the shell.

How Double Drum Magnetic Separator separate iron from stainless steel?

Stainless steel materials are fed onto the top of the Drum Magnet, where magnetically susceptible materials such as irons are attracted to the magnetic field of the stationary internal magnetic system and held to the rotating shell surface of the Drum Magnet.

The revolving shell transports the iron particles out of the magnetic field, where they are discharged into a receiving conveyor or collection area. The non-magnetic material is unaffected and flows under a normal trajectory.

What are the applications of the Double Drum Magnetic Separator?

  • Separation of iron contamination from Minerals in Mineral Processing
  • Separation of fine iron from spray dried ceramics in Ceramics Industry
  • For metal recycling, recovering ferrous metals, and more in recycling industries 
  • For separating or recovering para magnetic and ferrous from foundries
  • For removal of ferrous metals from plastic beads in the plastic industry
  • Food processing industry
  • Chemical industry and more
