Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators
The S.G. Frantz Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators utilize magnetic background fields of approximately 2,500 gauss. The standard water-cooled model can handle product temperatures up to 176°F (80°C), while special thermal insulated units can handle product temperatures up to 400°F (205°C).
The F2 series is designed to separate fine ferromagnetic particles under difficult processing conditions, with background magnetizing fields of at least 2,500 oersteds measured in the empty separating chamber, and well above 2,500 oersteds with the matrix in place — more than twice that of models in the F1 series.
The background field induces a field several times more intense in the collecting elements, with a high-field energy gradient H(dH/dX) at the collecting edges of a standard matrix element fabricated of steel ribbon 1/4″ in width and 0.02″ thick calculated as 7.2 x 1011 gauss2/cm (assuming that the field induced in the steel near the edge is about 8,500 gauss, as measurements indicate).
Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators for Wet Materials
Our Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators for wet materials are used to process and separate liquids, slurries and gases. They are available in the following two designs (with individual models configured to meet customer needs).
Series F2 Electromagnetic Separators for Dry Materials
Our F2 Series units for dry materials are offered in two basic styles — hopper feed and hub feed. They are designed to process dry granular materials and powders.
The hopper-type feeds material into the top through an open hopper, processing it through vane-type or wet-type grids, and then discharging through an opening at the bottom. The hub type, designed to connect to the plant’s system via rubber boots, operates in much the same way, but materials are normally fed through the top hub and discharged through the bottom hub.
All Series F2 Electromagnetic Separator models require flow to be controlled from outside the unit to ensure uniform low-velocity flow throughout the matrix.
