Successful Development of Slon-4000 Magnetic Separator - the Largest Processing Capacity Magnetic Separator

BG’s strategic partner – Slon Magnetic Separator Ltd has successfully developed a new magnetic separator, SLon-4000 vertical ring pulsating high gradient magnetic separator, a machine having the largest processing capacity of a single unit ever in China. This machine was installed and successfully run in an iron mine in China in November, 2011. The technical parameters meet or exceed the design requirements.

The machine has a swivel ring of outer diameter as large as 4 meters, weighs nearly 400 tons and is capable of processing 550 tons of ore per hour. It is the largest single processing capability machine among the magnetic separators applied in China and in the world. The success of development, installation and operation of this machine is a landmark to large scale mineral processing equipment in China and even in the world.
