The principle of action of the barrier separator for beneficiation of coarse weakly magnetic ores is described. New data of laboratory-scale investigations of beneficiation of manganese ore and mineral sands are introduced. The results of tests in the Volnogorsk State Mining and Metallurgical Plant (VSMMP) show high technological effectiveness and reliability of the experimental separator.
