Magnetic Separators

Wood particle flows free from ferrous impurities

Magnetic separators provide for the continuous and automatic removal of ferrous materials possibly present in wood material flows.

The machine consists of a rotating drum out of stainless steel. The drum also has a fixed shaft holding a half moon magnet element made of a soft iron support, onto which neodymium permanent magnets are fitted.

As the drum rotates, wooden material will be conveyed towards a discharge hopper, while ferrous components will be retained on the drum surface until they are in the area equipped with the magnet element located inside, and they will then be released when they reach the non-magnetized area, so as to be discharged through the relevant hopper.


  • effective separation of ferrous parts from wooden material flows;
  • avoiding damages to the machines located downstream.
