Low intensity magnetic separators, Lims, are designed to recover magnetic material from nonmagnetic matter. The separators are of modular design with several frames and process tank designs using a common magnetic drum for ease of selection of the best machine for each individual application.
Low intensity magnetic separators
Metso Lims separators are designed around the revolving magnetic drum with an internally stationary magnetic array. They are available in several types for vast number of duties and could be seen as split into two categories, dry separation and wet separation.
The dry models are intended predominantly for material 2 to 200 millimeters in dry or nearly dry state like crushed iron ore.
The wet versions are designed for material of a few micrometer size to less than around 6 - 8 millimeters suspended in water. For both separator types a number of magnetic systems are available for highest possible efficiency of each application.
