Dr. Jakobs GmbH is developing separation processes for mineral raw materials as

  • quartz and silica sand (glass sand, foundry, ultra high purity quartz, high brightness quartz)
  • feldspar
  • kaolin
  • heavy minerals

and in the field of recycling

  • separation of copper, aluminium, precious metals from the fine fraction of the shredder process
  • dry separation of copper, brass, aluminium from plastics
  • separation of different kind of plastic materials


Dr. Jakobs GmbH is specialized in equipment for physical separation processes:

  • magnetic separators (wet, dry)
  • Eddy current separator
  • gravity separation equipment (shaking tables)

In addition we can offer equipment for ultrasonic processing - laboratory, pilot plant and plant size equipment.


The improvement of recoveries, reduction of production waste and saving of energy are in combination with better use of raw materials the focus of today. Also improvement of quality is a key issue in the processing industry.

Dr. Jakobs GmbH is focusing on that topics since 20 year with verifiable results. 

Also the development of magnetic separators can be related with that topic.

In the process development we focus on highest efficiency and minimal waste streams.
