Eriez® RE Drum Separators Provide Superior Protection Against Ferrous Contamination

Press release date: May 25, 2012

Erie, Pa. - Rare Earth (RE) Drum Separators from Eriez® feature Erium® 3000, a high quality rare earth permanent magnetic power source. Eriez RE Drum Separators deliver unmatched performance, purifying large quantities of bulk materials such as foods, plastics, abrasives, metal powders, ceramic material, paper, glass cullet, soda ash, kaolin clay, chemicals, gypsum and quartz powder. They remove very fine ferrous particles, locked particles, and even strongly paramagnetic particles. Neodymium-boron-iron rare earth permanent magnets develop magnetic fields up to 25 times stronger than conventional ceramic or alnico units, with no increase in size. The additional strength helps in removing weakly magnetic or very fine iron contaminants from a wide variety of fine dry bulk materials as well as slurries. The increased strength at a greater distance, high gradients and increased holding force of Eriez RE Drums allows them to hold magnetic or fine iron contaminants so tightly that wipe-off by product flow is virtually eliminated. These drums are an ideal choice where high product purity is required. Eriez RE Drums are part of the complete line of drums from Eriez, which includes standard models in diameters from 12 to 36 inches (305 to 915 mm), and widths from 12 to 60 inches (305 to 1525 mm). These units provide efficient separation on feed rates up to 100 TPH. Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through 12 international facilities located on six continents. For more information, call toll-free (888) 300-ERIEZ (3743) within the U.S. and Canada.
