Eriez unveils 80-inch rare earth mag separator

Eriez has not named the recipient of the world’s first 80-inch dry high-intensity rare earth (RE) roll magnetic separator that it custom built and commissioned for the customer’s processing application requirements.

The separator has already been installed at the site and initial reports coming back to Eriez have indicated the equipment has exceeded expectations, even at higher-than-specified feed rates, according to Eriez Director of Minerals and Materials Processing Jose Marin. 

The company’s largest previous offering was a 60-inch roll width unit.

“Eriez applied sophisticated finite element analysis in magnetic circuit design to produce an energy-free separator capable of generating the exceptionally high field-strengths needed to remove unwanted fine iron contaminants,” Marin said. 

“We are excited that our newest 80-inch model is surpassing predicted performance levels.”
