Serving All Industries with Quality & Innovative
World Class Magnetic Systems & Separators


There are many types of Drum Separators, from Heavy Duty Electro Drums, for separation of ferrous from non-ferrous metals to Permanent Magnetic Drums for fine iron separation.

Drums in Tandem

The Magnetic Drum Separator is normally installed at product discharge points and incorporates a 150 - 180 degree magnet system, encased in a stainless steel shell, or manganese wear plates for severe application.  This system pulls iron contamination out and behind the clean product path and discharges it automatically while the clean product continues its normal trajectory. All drums are available with shafts to suit customer’s requirements, or furnished complete with drive systems, stands and/or housings.

A complete range of housings are available to suit clientís requirements. All magnetic drums are available in Electro or Permanent design or can be made with High Intensity Rare Earth Magnetic System, especially useful when contamination is mesh or micron size. Based on volume of material being processed, density of material, size and amount of contamination, varying sizes are available to suit all applications and customerís requirements.

Electro Drum

A single Drum Magnet, without housing, can be installed at the discharge end of chutes, conveyors or vibratory feeders or similar conveying machines for the removal of iron for product upgrading.

A Totally Enclosed Magnetic Drum, with housing and drive system, handles a variety of products, such as, grain, carbon black, fertilizers, food, chemicals, rubber, and other powder, bulk or granular materials, where the product is to be kept free from external contamination, and any dust being given off from the product is kept within the systemís housing.


Fragmentizer Magnetic Drum Magnets are available for the automatic continuous separation and upgrading of ferrous from non-ferrous metals in scrap processing, steel bearing slag, foundry metal recovery, municipal waste and many other extreme heavy-duty applications.  It can also be used for selective reclaiming of light materials for de-tinning processes.

Alternating magnetic high intensity poles act as íagitatorsí, at the point of extraction, lifting the ferrous metals and allowing non-magnetic materials to fall away.  These very large Drum Magnets are available in sizes up to 72" in diameter and 120" in width to match customers conveying equipment or volume of material being processed.

The Fragmentizer Magnetic Drum Magnet is offered in Electro, Permanent and Electro/Permanent Magnetics. The drums can be fitted with easy replaceable wear covers of stainless steel or manganese.  The magnet system is locked in position by a heavy duty turnbuckle arrangement.
