In this paper we simulate and realize an electromagnetic separator excited with an alternating current. And, we will to see the factors that influence the separation. This realization is used for the separation of the ferromagnetic and non ferromagnetic particles. The aim of this application is to recover the particles of non ferrous and ferrous from mixture by attractive magnetic force with big rate of separation. Experiments’ results and simulation of this separator, finally the parameters of separation are optimized with prediction method is presented in this paper.
