High-Gradient Permanent Magnetic Separator For Particle Collection

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TN, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A new technologies to monitor and capture airborne nanoparticles. This device uses a highgradient permanent magnet to efficiently detect, collect, and separate nano-scale particles in air and water.

Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed an extreme high efficiency magnetic separator (filter) for the collection of nanometer sized particles. This has significant implication for a wide range of applications such as detector, collector, and high-throughput separator for particulate matter in airborne state and in water.
