The physical foundations and theoretical determination of conditions for formation of a slurry flow in form of a film along ferromagnetic plates of a rotary high—gradient magnetic separator are described. It is shown that this new hydrodynamics allows to increase not only the reliability of the separator thanks to the increase of the width of gaps between the plates, but also to improve its metallurgical efficiency.
