Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator

Eriez Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS)

WHIMS are designed for high capacity, continuous removal or concentration of feebly magnetic materials. Typical applications include hematitic iron, rare earth minerals, industrial minerals and more.


  • Excellent performance on even weakly magnetic materials: higher recovery (4-6% higher at the same grade) or higher grade.
  • High capacity without clogging.
  • Advanced design and durable construction with less maintenance (Matrix fabrication technology patented).
  • Dual jigging washing for a higher separation efficiency (patented).
  • Air assisted discharge for less water usage (patented).
  • No ring step motion/indexing.
  • No concentrate early drop off (patented).
  • Many models and sizes to choose.
  • Direct water cooling to make it a simple and reliable operation.
