  • Kiverco Completes Another Complex Project for a Major UK Customer

    The customer Tom White Waste Ltd was formed in 1981, when Tom White found it difficult to obtain waste management services for his other businesses and decided to start his own waste management operation. Since then, the business has grown hugely and in 1988, Tom’s sons Ian and Paul joined the business and today, they run the company as joint managing directors. Tom White ...

  • Understanding Challenging Applications for Improved Metal Detection

    In the food industry, certain products can act like metal contaminants, a phenomenon known as ‘product effect.’ This is where the type of product being inspected can hinder the ability of inspection technology to correctly identify metal. At best this can lead to unacceptable false reject levels, at worst it can result in metal contaminated product leaving the production facility. ...

  • Neodymium Magnets Grade Data Sheet

    As the strongest type of commercial magnets, neodymium magnets are graded according to their maximum energy product. For example, Grade N35 indicates that the maximum energy product of a N35 magnet should be 35MGOe. The actual energy product of a N35 magnets could be range from 33-35 MGOe. The highest grade available is N52. The pull ...


  • The true value of magnetic separators and metal detectors in bulk handling

    Introduction The purpose of a bulk material handling may be to transport material from one of several locations to an ultimate destination or to process material such as ore in concentrating and smelting or handling materials for manufacturing. The handling of dry materials in loose bulk form involved the extensive use of static machinery such as belt conveyors, screw conveyors, and various ...

  • Magnets: A viable alternative to flotation for sand producers

    Introduction The basic rudiments of mineral beneficiation have not changed for many years. The techniques have been improved, but are still essentially the same, using either a materials weight, density, shape or magnetic susceptibility to enable separation. For removing impurities from non-metallic minerals, such as silica sand, typical methods include Flotation, Gravity and Magnetic ...

  • Magnetic Separation Myths 5 of 10 Magnetic Separators Lose Their Magnetic Strength Over Time

    It is a question that gets frequently asked: When will the Magnetic Separator start losing its magnetic strength? In a perfect world, a magnetic separator should not lose any magnetic strength. However, there are occasions when external factors will affect the magnetic strength and these include: The use of bonded Rare Earth Magnets. ...


  • Magnetic Separation Myths 4 of 10 – Magnets Can’t Attract Stainless Steel or Can They?

    The vast majority of stainless steel used in plants processing foodstuffs, chemicals, plastics and handling bulk materials whether in solid, liquid or powder form, is non-magnetic. Or is it? Traditionally, Magnetic Separators were installed to remove anything that was magnetically susceptible.  Today, this can even include magnetic plastic, used for gloves and even tools.  Magnetically ...


  • Magnetic Separation Myths 3 of 10 – The Highest Gauss Magnetic Separator is the Best!

    On a weekly and often daily basis, an enquiry will arrive in one of the Bunting team’s inboxes requesting a Magnetic Separator (eg a Cartridge or Tube Magnet) of a specific length and diameter.  It is only when the enquiry also states a specific gauss figure that the complications start. Firstly, ...


  • Magnetic Separation Myths 2 of 10 – Are All Rare Earth Magnets the Same?

    A client has a metal contamination problem and needs to install the most suitable magnetic separation.  The metal is small and so they believe that a Rare Earth Magnet is what they need as this produces the strongest magnetic field.  So he picks up the phone and orders a Rare Earth Magnetic Separation and his problem is solved.  Or is it? Unfortunately, the term ‘Rare Earth ...


  • Recovery of lead from bullet berms on shooting ranges using Ekokem`s method - Case Study

    Ekokem has developed a method by which it is able to separate bullets from berm soil. The method used for separation is based on the electromagnetic properties of lead and on sensor technology. A considerable number of bullets accumulate on shooting ranges every year. It is important to remove them from outdoor shooting ranges as the lead they contain can leach into the soil, where it ...

  • Magnetic Separation Myths 1 of 10 – Always Use the Strongest Magnet

    Strongest is always best, or is it? Commonly, companies will call and request a quote for the strongest magnet. But do they actually need a magnetic separator with the highest magnetic pulling power? The strongest magnetic fields are produced by superconductors and are used in industrial and medical applications.  However, their use in industry is very specific due to the high capital ...


  • Vulcanis Maximise Steel Can Recovery with a Bunting Cross Belt Overband Magnet

  • Magnetic seeding of non-magnetic adsorbent powders by coagulation using ferric chloride and magnetite

    A magnetic modification of conventional adsorbent powders to remove them rapidly from water is investigated. In this paper we study the possibility of using a non-magnetic adsorbent powder mixed with magnetite and a coagulant such as ferric chloride added after the adsorption to create magnetic flocs that can be magnetically separated (magnetic seeding). A natural zeolite and Na-activated ...
