vale launches pilot plant for dry magnetic separation
Magnetic Separation. Multotec supplies a complete range of magnetic separation equipment for separating ferromagnetic and paramagnetic particles from dry solids or slurries, or for removing tramp metal. Multotec Dry and Wet Drum Separators, WHIMS, Demagnetising Coils and Overbelt Magnets are used in mineral processing plants across the world. Carrier magnetic separation has been proposed for more effective separation of water and solids from acid mine water to generate very pure water (Feng et al., 2000).As discussed in Chapter 10, dissolved heavy metals like zinc and copper can be recovered from acid mine drainage (AMD) by selective precipitation controlling the pH for the precipitation of specific metals.
