    Magnetic Seperation

    The device used to separate minerals based on their magnetic properties is called a Frantz Isodynamic Magnetic Separator. The magnetic separator consists of a large electromagnet through which mineral mixtures can be passed on a metal trough which is divided near its exit end. Varying the strength of the magnetic field and/or slope of the

    S.G. Frantz’s standard proprietary grids are effective for most applications, exemplifying a principle revealed early by Mr. Frantz: For effective magnetic separation, the size of the collecting edge should be on the same order of magnitude as the size of the particles to be captured. This configuration offers several advantages: The width of the strip is aligned with the background magnetic

    The simplest form of magnetic separation is by hand magnet, a procedure which works for only one common mineral - magnetite. Other minerals having magnetic susceptibility are separated by using an apparatus that can generate strong electromagnetic fields. The Frantz separator (Fig. 1) incorporates an electromagnet with

    6) Pass the heavy fraction through the Frantz magnetic separator. Clean the Frantz before starting a run by blowing all the parts with forced air. Begin by passing a magnet over the sample several times; if this step is omitted, magnetite will probably clog the tray in the magnetic separator. Pass through the separator at increasingly higher
