Electromagnet drum separators are found in most auto shredders, mills and mines. They are primarily used to attract ferrous metals. The drum rotates while the shaft and the magnet coils stay put. The rotational speed of the drum synchronizes with the conveyor belt speed. The drum attracts the ferrous metals to separate from other material and guides them onto a different location.
The pictured unit had a hole torn through the manganese exterior. Our technicians welded and machined the fabricated drum, manufactured and installed new magnet coils and then evaluated and recorded all mechanical tolerances before returning to the customer.
