Satmagan 135

A fast, accurate and reliable instrument for measuring the magnetite content in samples.

Accurate measurement of ferrous material content in iron ore is extremely difficult and time-consuming by conventional chemical methods in the laboratory. This is overcome by measuring the total magnetic moment of the sample in a high magnetic field thereby measuring the magnetite content in the sample accurately, reliably and faster than measurement based on susceptibility of the material.

For over 40 years Satmagan has been in use in the mining industry around the world and has been proven to be a fast, accurate and reliable instrument for measuring the magnetite content in samples. With a measuring time of roughly one minute and an accuracy of 0.4 % or less Satmagan is considered to be an ideal instrument for securing an optimal return on investment.

The principle behind the Satmagan 135 is to measure the force acting on the sample in a magnetic field with a spatial gradient. The magnetic field is strong enough to saturate the magnetic component in a sample. A Satmagan can be used to measure any sample with only one magnetic component. Alternatively, it can measure a component with a dominant concentration and/or dominant specific magnetic moment.

Once Satmagan is calibrated it is easy and fast to use. Therefore it is an ideal instrument for analyzing mixtures of magnetic and non-magnetic components.


Metcorr 117C

Industrial metal detector for mining operations, quarries and facilities with conveyor material.

Metcorr™ 117C is a metal detector, which is able to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects. It is suited for mines, quarries and other industrial facilities, where unwanted metal objects in conveyed material would cause damage or excessive wear on process equipment, e.g. crushers.

Metcorr™ 117C comprises of one electronics set, one coil system with interconnecting cables and an optional coil mounting set. The coil system comprises of two identical coil elements,which are available in five different sizes. The material, which is to be screened for tramp metal, travels on the conveyor belt between the coils. As the coils in Metcorr™ 117C are identical, they are also interchangeable, which enables a quick and cost-effective repair. However, Metcorr™ 117C is known to be an extremely reliable metal detector that is practically maintenance free. Metcorr™ 117C has customers that have used it for decades without interruptions.

The two channel method, used in Metcorr™ 117C helps reliably detect rod and bar shaped metal objects, and can be used on steel corded belts. Unlike many other metal detectors, Metcorr™ 117C does not cause false alarms when used on metal reinforced belts. Metcorr™ 117C can detect metal in any orientation on the belt and has excellent immunity to vibration.
