Our electrostatic drum separator is used to separates particles of different electrical charges and of different sizes when it is possible. In electrostatic drum separator when particles of different polarity are brought into an electric field, they follow different motion trajectories and can be caught separately.
Separations made using a corona discharge device, are called High Tension Separations. Separations made in liquids are termed separation by Dielectrophoresis, and if a motion is due to polarization effects in nonuniform electric fields.
Our electrostatic drum separator is used in all plants that process heavy minerals sands bearing zircon, rutile, and monazite. Electrostatic separation is important in the production of minerals, also in the reclamation of other valuable materials, as well as the cleaning of some food products
