This paper presents a developed technique for a magnetic transporter which employs a moving magnetic field to transport ferromagnetic particles or to rotate ferromagnetic slurries. Such a field is produced by a conventional stator of a linear (or rotary) induction motor with iron cores, and appropriate copper windings.
