In this paper we discuss some numerical and experimental results obtained for a magnetic filtration cell with bounded flow field which works in the HGMF-transversal configuration. The numerical results have been obtained by analyzing the particle trajectories in very diluted suspensions, for which the inertia of the particles and the magnetic and hydrodynamic interactions between particles were neglected. The experimental data were obtained by using suspensions of fine particles with magnetic susceptibilities around 5.10-4uSI. Here a comparison between the two categories of results is made for a large range of constructive and operational parameters.
