I´m new in magnets but i work in a facility with a magnetic drum (ferrite) to remove the iron from the agregates. Now we want to improve separation, reducing iron content in the agregates and we want to buy a new drum. The problem is that we dont have information about the field force of the current magnet or the magnet properties itself.
If we use a gausmeter we could know the magnetic field, is this correct? and then buy a more powerful ferrite.
