This patent-pending system uses computationally designed, high-gradient magnet arrays combined with sheet/planar flow to enhance magnetic separation throughput as well as efficiency. In trials, the system outperforms market-leading magnetic separators by more than 1,000x in terms of flow rate, while maintaining high capture efficiency.
