Wheelabrator Magnetic Separator

LaGrange, GA - (July 31, 2007) - The low profile Wheelabrator® magnetic separator, which includes a secondary air wash separator, is designed to magnetically pull steel shot or grit from sand or other non-ferrous material using a magnetic rotating drum. This magnetic separation process significantly increases the ability to remove sand from the steel shot or grit under extremely heavy sand load conditions. The addition of the magnetic separator to foundry blast equipment increases the life of the machine because sand is the primary cause of wear on foundry blast equipment. The magnetic separator reduces blast cycle times, increases the life of replacement parts and reduces equipment maintenance and abrasive consumption operating costs. Additionally, the magnetic separator reduces the air ventilation requirements for shot blasting equipment, and the horsepower savings reduces the total system requirements. The magnetic separator is easy to install on both Wheelabrator and non-Wheelabrator blast equipment. The magnetic separator is part of the Wheelabrator Plus program, which is the parts, equipment modernization and service division of the Wheelabrator Group that helps customers improve the efficiency of their existing blast equipment operations.
