High-gradient magnetic separation in a strong field is essentially a periodic process. In canister constructions it consists of separate operations, introduced by the electronic processor, while in rotary constructions the process is continuous. The separators with high capacity are very bulky, heavy and have massive rotors. All this reduces their technical and economic viability. The continuous process of high-gradient of separation in a chambered construction is reviewed. "Magnetic slipping" of feebly magnetic particles on prismatic elements of a matrix in the discharge zone utilized for the first time.
