System Description

The Smart Drum plus is an in-line, fully automatic fluid and precipitate recovery system designed to complement the Maggie magnetic separators to remove ferrous (i.e. magnetic) particles.

The Smart Drum Plus consists of a stainless steel body containing a magnetic drum made of the same high intensity rare earth magnets as used in the Maggie. The magnetic drum removes all ferrous suspended solids from the fluid to expel a dry cake of those solids out one end and returning a clean fluid back to the system.

Filler Operation

Solids loaded backwash fluid from the Maggie separator enters the Smart Drum Plus from its top-mounted inlet connection, entering the primary containment chamber that slows down and reduces the pressure from the system.

The fluid is then gravity fed through an opening to enter the secondary chamber. The solids-loaded fluid flows towards a small gap under the magnetic drum as a motor turns the magnetic drum against the flow of the fluid. A small gap between the magnetic drum and chamber bottom ensures all solids are captured by the drum and the clean fluid continues out a purge pipe that can lead back to the system or into a holding tank.

The captured solids continue turning with the drum where they are first compressed between a roller to squeeze out any remaining fluid meanwhile creating a dry cake from the captured solids. The dry cake then continues upward with the roller until it reaches the top where it meets a scraper. The scraper removes the dry cake from the magnetic drum leading the solids out an exit chute for recovery or disposal.
