gaustec®

A Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS)

Functions

The gaustec® is a Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator that offers a maximum of flexibility in magnetic separation.

The gaustec® separates ores and other paramagnetic and feebly magnetic minerals with a particle size up to 3 mm.

The matrix is made of grooved plates. The gap of the grooved plates is designed according to the process requirements. The flow through the matrix is vertical and unhindered eliminating the risk of blockage by ferro magnetic particles. This allows for small quantities of magnetite in the feed when treating hematite ores.

The high gradient magnetic field is independently adjustable for each rotor through AC/DC converters, in the operational ranges. This allows for a rougher and cleaner/scavenger process step in one single machine. The rotor speed is adjustable from 3 to 7 rpm through a frequency inverter. Throughput rates of 6 to 1400 t/h per machine.
