Stearns’ “WPD” – WET Magnetic Drum Separators

Wet drum separators are used in magnetic media recovery, purification of solids carried in liquid suspension and in iron ore concentration. Stearns has developed a specific line of separators for handling slurries developed in heavy media plants. These heavy media plants require:

  • Magnetic separators which recover magnetics contained in feed slurries as efficiently as possible, to reduce the per ton/media consumption of treated product to a minimum.

  • Recovery of magnetic solids in as clean a magnetic concentrate as possible, to keep the separating bath at a low viscosity, and to eliminate a misplaced product.

  • A high gravity magnetic discharge to eliminate, in many instances, the need for a densifier. A high gravity concentrate simplifies plant operation.

  • Trouble-free operation with minimum down time, minimum operator attention and minimum cost.

Industrial Applications

  • Heavy-Media Processing (coal, iron)

  • See our HV High Volume WPD Separator for higher-volume applications

Stearns’ “HV” Wet Permanent Drum Separator

Stearns “HV” –High Volume Magnetic Separator is designed to handle the demands of increased production rates without adding additional drums to your circuit. The drum utilizes a wider arc magnet to increase retention time for maximum magnetic recovery. The interpole magnet arrangement allows for numerous polarity changes to improve the cleaning of recovered magnetics. This high volume separator provides you

  • Increased Capacity

  • Maximum Magnetic Recovery

  • Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel Construction tank and feed box

  • Low Maintenance

Stearns Ceramic Magnets

Stearns Ceramic 2-Stage Magnetic Seporator

For handling a heavy flow at high speeds, the efficient Ceramic Magnetic Hump removes tramp iron from materials conveyed pneumatically or in free-flowing gravity systems. The basic unit consists of two 350-A permanent plate magnets mounted in a welded steel housing. Installation may be vertical for gravity systems or horizontal for pneumatic lines.

Stearns Suspended Ceramic Plate Magnets

Stearns powerful plate magnets are used to remove small tramp iron from free flowing products. Typical applications include use in chutes, or ducts and suspended over conveyors.

Standard Features

  • Stainless Steel Construction

  • Welded Hinge

  • Mounting Holes

  • Widths Starting at 6″

  • Single or Double Gap Magnets
