Wet magnetic drum separator

Wet magnetic drum separator

Dealing with fines? Fine by us.

When you’re dealing with fines, it’s necessary to work with water in a wet magnetic drum separator. There are a number of products we prefer, and we select the magnet system to suit the specific context. Always, our focus is on achieving maximum performance.
