In this paper, separation of dispersed magnetic particles from waste water using magnetic filtration technology was investigated. For this purpose, the mixture of water and corrosion particles is processed with detergent, acidic and basic materials, and then passed through an magnetic filter. Effects of viscosity, detergent concentration and pH value of the waste water on the separation efficiencies of the magnetic filter used were investigated. It was found that the efficiency of the filter separation decreases as the viscosity and detergent concentration of the waste water increase. Furthermore, it was recorded that the pH value of the waste water changes the efficiency of magnetic filter. The separation efficiency was found to be rather low in the absence of the magnetic field compared to those obtained in the presence of the magnetic field.
