Product Information:

Drum Separator DS0404

This powerful Rare Earth magnetic Drum Separator is ideal for the removal of ferrous and paramagnetic particulates from a range of dry free flowing products, and is therefore suitable for filtration of products within the foodchemical, pharmaceutical, ceramicanimal feed, and recycling industries. The Drum Separator is a fully bespoke product and can be designed to fit any size or shape of chute, with flanges to suit each customer’s requirements.

As product flows through the separator, it falls onto the drum surface. As the drum rotates, fins move the contamination to the rear of the drum where the magnetic area ends, causing the contaminant to fall through a secondary chute. The powerful Rare Earth magnets within the drum can extract ferrous particles as small as 0.5mm.

The Drum Separator is low maintenance and highly efficient as it offers continuous removal of contaminant without the need to stop the production process for cleaning.

A removable panel is included to allow access for maintenance. This can be substituted for a clear panel to provide an inspection window if required.

This product can be designed to international pressure vessel design codes (ASME VIII, EN13445 and PD5500) and can be manufactured to be Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 97/23/EC and ATEX 2014/34/EU compliant.
