Metal Deflection system/ Draft included

  1. May 5, 2007 #1
    I am wondering if:
    1. Is it possible to design such system? I am trying to induce the Aluminium Tin, then deflect it using a positively charged metal plate.

    2. If so, what is the cost needed? Let say I want to deflect the tin for about 5cm from the center, and the size of the design should not exceed the size of 80cm*80cm

    You did not explain the principle of your device.
    I guessed this is based on electrostatic forces.
    If I guessed correctly, I think it will not work. You would require very high voltage to get a small force.

    Metal deflection is very much used in industry.
    For example, in cement grinding plants, metalic parts could damage some equipements.
    They are removed with magnetic deflection systems. This is very common.
    These devices commonly remove mettalic part from large bulk flows (more than 1000 t/h) without problem.
    The same principle can be applied at any scale.

    Thanks for your advise. Can you give me some link on the magnetic defelction system? And is it possible to design it without high cost?

    Why not use a simple separate solenoid as the pusher element?

    How does a solenoid separator help to separate metal from non-metal?:confused:

    Oh, I see your point. But I don't think you can use electrostatic fields for the separation either. Probably using eddy currents would work better?
