Abstract

This paper reports experimental and analytical studies on the capture efficiency of a superconducting high-gradient magnetic separation (HGMS) system, employing ferromagnetic filters with various wire diameters and packing fractions. The magnetization force was inversely proportional to wire diameter because the magnetic field gradient increased with decreasing wire diameter. In addition, the capture efficiency of the HGMS system was increased with decreasing wire diameter and increasing packing fraction. The experimental results from the filtration tests via the superconducting HGMS system were in reasonably good agreement with the capture efficiency using the magnetization force obtained by magnetic field analysis.
