STEINERT’s permanent magnet WDS have been of great benefit to the iron ore and heavy media industries successfully for decades

Our WDS (Wet Drum Separator) systems have advanced magnet technology giving a 120% increase in average magnetic force. Magnetite and ferrosilicon recovery now approaches 100% efficiency, and the machinery is now more user friendly than ever before.

Dry drum and wet drum solutions available from STEINERT.

The non-ferrous metal separator to be used wherever non-ferrous metals have to be recovered or separated

STEINERT's NES Eddy Current Separator is a reliable, durable, high yield non-ferrous metal separator, with applications in a number of areas including processing of shredder material and refuse. The NES 4T, with an operating speed of up to 4,000 rpm, can increase efficiency by up to 30% in comparison with 2,600 rpm equipment.

Efficient X-Ray Transmission Sensor Equipment, for mineral recovery from mining and resource recovery from solid municipal waste.

The XSS is an extremely versatile sensor sorting machine which has applications in waste sorting as well as mining preparation and processing facilities. XSS T technology can separate light from heavy metals, as well as wood from stone and PVC from plastics, by determining differing densities. XSS F uses fluorescence to "read" materials by their surfaces.

X-Ray Sensing, near Infra-Red and Induction sorting for Mobile Sensor Sorting solutions

STEINERT machinery, including our mobile solutions, offers the Australian mining and waste recovery industries highly advanced sensor technology, which can include a combination of Near Infra-Red (NIR), Induction and X-Ray equipment.

Scrap and waste recycling solutions for when and where you need.

The ISS Induction Separation System can be supplied as a mobile unit, allowing the combination of stand-alone machinery to create an extremely durable and efficient mobile processing plant. The ISS can offer a purity rate of better than 90%, representing a doubling of efficiency over manual sorting.

Magnetic Separation, sensor sorting for mining processing operations in Australia and South East Asia (SEA)

STEINERT offers a broad range of solutions for the coal, mineral and ore mining industry in Australia, including Suspension Magnets, X-Ray sensors, and Induction Separation as well as the WDS Wet Drum Separator.

Depending on conditions, the WDS throughput figure can reach 150 m3/h*m.

Leading the way in Wet Drum Magnetic Separation

STEINERT’s permanent magnet WDS have been beneficiating iron ore and heavy media successfully for decades. In iron ore processing, the WDS separates magnetic iron ore such as magnetite from waste rock - at P80’s commonly down to 28µm. STEINERT has continued to develop several aspects of the WDS. Heavy media recovery - magnetite or ferrosilicon - is near on 100% efficient. We have also been supplying Wet Drum separation to many big mining companies over the years, and are constantly developing our range in response to industry needs.

Magnetic separation solutions for resource recovery operations equipment protection

Our Suspension Magnets are widely used in the Australian resource recovery sector such as scrap, RDF, demolition waste, slag, MSW and MRF plants.

Scrap metal and waste operations benefit from the decontamination and protection offered by our recycling separators, working at belt widths of up to 3000mm and heights of up to 900mm. Our dense coil design offers exceptionally efficient cooling.

Remove gangue from mining product with X-Ray Sensing and Induction Sorting

Induction Sorting with the ISS allows recovery of material such as stainless steel which escapes magnetic and eddy current processes. XSS X-Ray sensing equipment works with metals, organics and plastics with grain sizes between 10 and 200mm. Highly efficient in Gangue removal.

Mobile Sensor Sorting solutions for resource recovery

The challenges for the recycling industry in the years ahead include more efficient extraction of high quality material, particularly in response to demands from aluminium sheet producers worldwide. Our mobile units can be used in both Mining and Resource Recovery industries.

X-Ray Sensing, Near Infra-Red and Induction sorting or a combination of sensor sorting solutions

Recycling facilities and resource recovery businesses will benefit from STEINERT's highly advanced sensor equipment, including NIR, X-Ray sorting and Induction systems. Ask us about the UniSort range of products developed specifically for the waste and recycling market.

The UniSort range includes UniSort Flake, UniSort PR and UniSort Analyser – created in the response to the fast moving market of plastics recycling and RDF processing.

Dry Process Coal Sorting using x-ray sensor sorting system.

STEINERT XSS can be used for coal de-ashing, coal de-shaling, coal de-stoning. Making the process even more functional are our mobile sensor sorting solutions. Designed specifically for customers who want to take their recovery process on the road, this STEINERT mobile series allows for precise mining sensor sorting anywhere a power source and fairly level ground can be found. The modules are connected together as "plug and play"

NIR Sorting Machines from STEINERT open new horizons in the sorting of plastic and E Scrap recycling.

NIR sorting machines from STEINERT plot the specific infrared spectra of varying objects using an extremely high optical resolution. The output of separated materials is optimised via the NIR sorter to ensure ROI targets are met. In the field of plastic recycling, equipment must be able to effectively sort up to the seven different types of plastics, each determined by their density, resins and composition. STEINERT NIR sorting machines cover a wide range of applications from electronic waste recycling through to sorting plastic.

STEINERT Waste to Energy Solutions can reduce landfill and deliver Energy from Waste materials.

Waste to Energy facilities from STEINERT deliver an integrated solution to managing municipal solid waste. The benefits of high recycle rates of municipal waste reduces the level of landfill traditionally needed for this process. The STEINERT range of machines include Magnetic Drum Separators, X-Ray Sorters and Colour Sorting solutions. In an age where creating energy from waste is fast becoming a very profitable sector, the benefits to the environment cannot be overlooked.

STEINERT pre concentration ore processing equipment brings economic benefits and environmental gains.

STEINERT Pre-Concentration Solutions can be applied to low grade stockpiles and bring value to previously uneconomic material. Utilising our ore processing equipment at remote sites will reduce hauling costs as well as enabling distributed ore bodies to be mined in a more effective manner.

STEINERT MRF equipment delivers results for material recovery facilities across the world

A Material Recovery Facility, or MRF, utilises equipment to sort all manner of waste. STEINERT machines are in use within sectors including processing municipal solid waste, construction and demolition waste, e-scrap and waste to energy systems, or are single path processors. STEINERT’s extensive sorting technologies are helping MRFs achieve higher processing rates and material output from waste than ever before.
