Electromagnetic Separation Process

               This method is meant for separating magnetic impurities from non-magnetic ore particles. Example: Pyrolusite, Chromite, and tinstone. In which tinstone is non-magnetic; while impurities ion, manganese and tungstates are magnetic. The powdered ore is dropped on the conveyer belt moving over electromagnetic roller. The magnetic impurities fall from the belt in a heap near the magnet due to attraction. The non-magnetic concentrated ore falls in separate heap away from the magnet, due to the influence of centrifugal force.


  1. You labelled the buckets wrong. If the wheel is magnetic, the magnetic ores would've stuck for longer and went into the other bucket.
