Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR MAGNETIC SEPARATION
Abstract:
The invention relates to an apparatus (100) for removing magnetizable particles in a substance, the apparatus (100) comprising a magnetic separation chamber (110) for filtering magnetizable particles and floes from the substance, wherein the magnetic separation chamber (110) comprises a first housing (112) that defines a first space (114) through which the substance can flow, as well as at least one first magnet (116) of which a first magnetic field reaches into the first space (114), and which first magnet (116) is located within a first holder (118) that has an interface (120) with the first space (114); and a flocculation chamber (130) for inducing flocculation of the particles in a substance, the flocculation chamber (130) being in fluid connection with the magnetic separation chamber (110); wherein the magnetic separation chamber (110) is located downstream of the flocculation chamber (130), and wherein the flocculation of the magnetizable particles results in magnetizable floes, and the magnetic field of the first magnet (116) causes the magnetizable floes to be attracted towards the first magnet (116), thereby removing the floes of magnetizable particles from the substance.
