The robust electro drum magnets from Goudsmit are suitable for processing large volumes. They are used for processing bulk product flows containing lots of large or sharp pieces, such as scrap, glass or rubble. In these cases an overbelt or hanging magnet is unsuitable due to the high rate of belt wear.
The diameter of the drum magnet is important if the product flow contains large (>100 mm) pieces of ferrous metals. To achieve optimal separation lots of contact surface and space is required between the carriers.
The electromagnetic drum magnets are suitable for use by metal processors, such as scrap-vehicle and first-world waste shredders, for removing the iron directly from the shredded product in a one- or two-step process. They are also often used as pre-separator, at the beginning of the processing line. Here the largest pieces of iron are separated from the main flow so they do not cause problems or damage during the processing steps that follow.
Examples: shredder streams, household refuse, WEEE scrap, incineration/steel production slags, minerals, wood processing.

Goudsmit also delivers permanent drum magnets in this robust design. The major differences:

A permanent drum magnet is not switchable and will therefore always be ‘on’.
From diameters of around 1000 mm electro drum magnets are less expensive than the permanent versions.


Electromagnetic drum separators for scrap must be strong and robust, because they are subjected to extreme conditions (large volumes of coarse, sharp pieces of iron). Therefore the shell is made of a wear-resistant material.
