In total more than 200 JONES separators have been installed worldwide, not only to purify iron ores, but also other minerals such as phosphate, fluorite, silicon carbide etc.
The JONES wet highintensity magnetic separator enables not only very high magnetic fields at low current consumption, but also yields high throughput rates in a compact machine.
The JONES is a unique designed Wet High-Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS). It separates feeble magnetic from non-magnetic material, even at very fine grain sizes. JONES provides very high gradients of the magnetic field (up to 15.000 Gauss) at very low energy consumption - sufficient for your application.
The robust design of the JONES guarantees high throughput rates in a compact machine, enabling small buildings and low operating and maintenance costs. The gaps between the grooved plates keep their identical dimensions for a long operation time, generating a uniform magnetic force, essential for a selective separation. Within the unhindered flow the possibility of blockage of the gaps by ferromagnetic parts with high magnetic susceptibility is minimized. With the correct gap size and the respective setting of the magnetic field, even small quantities of magnetic abrasive material in the feed are feasible.
In actual operation the JONES WHIMS succeeded in up-grading iron ores and other mineral raw materials. Currently more than 180 JONES separators of different sizes have been supplied throughout the world, primarily separators of the type DP 317 designed for a capacity of nominal 120 t/h. Five different models for throughput rates from 200 t/h to 400 kg/h (for laboratory and pilot tests) are available.
- Solids feed size < 2 mm
- Throughput rates 0–450 t/h
