The purification process of electrically conducting liquid consisting of non-conducting particles by electromagnetic impact was studied experimentally. We have investigated the effects of the electromagnetic force magnitude, that of the rate of transit flow and resulting secondary flows intensity and of the channel geometry on the purification efficiency. The most efficient decrease in impurity concentration occurred at a minimum value of the applied electromagnetic force due to the influence of secondary stirring flows. The maximum decrease in concentration was 87\%. Based on the identified patterns, the geometry of the purification channel has been improved. Figs 10, Refs 14.
