Magnetic separation technology has seen rapid developments recently showing a boost to flux density in both Overhead suspension magnet bridges and drums, dry magnetic arrangements as well under conveyor wet magnetic separator technolgy.

  • : Melbourne VIC, Australia.

Innovations to magnet configuration increase the polar orientation of powerful permanent magnets in both air-cooled and oil- cooled electromagnetic arrangements that have led to vast increases in magnetic field density.

One of the most important tools to the mining and mobile mining industries are permanent magnet separators and electro magnetic separators. Permanent Magnet separators are used extensively during the recovery of heavy, coarse grade Iron and Ferrous based mineral content from mixed media streams.

STEINERT Permanent magnet bridges suspended overhead or electromagnetic overhead suspended magnets shine in the field of scrap metal recovery from mixed media auto shredder streams.

Magnetic separation is one of the principal primary stage sorting techniques in wide use throughout mining, mineral ore extraction. Many ferrous based minerals are found in the mining of diamonds, gemstones, coal, silicon and magnetite based minerals and ores. Iron and Ferrous based metals tend to be strongly magnetic and are often present in heavy mixed media waste streams such as those found in ore mining and metal salvage.


Air cooled electromagnetic separators and oil cooled electromagnetic separators conveniently mount over pulley, over conveyor belt.

Electro magnetic separators protect more sensitive downstream sorting and separation equipment from wear-and-tear by removing heavy and coarse grade tramp metal and tramp iron and mineral ores from the crusher feed. This provides opportunity for pre-concentration and higher recovery rates from otherwise waste material as well as protecting your equipment such as chutes, crushers and belt from harsh materials in the conveyor feed.

STEINERT suspended electro magnetic separators are the cream of the crop when it comes to overhead and overband suspended magnetic separators. Our electro magnetic separators are frequently coupled with powerful permanent magnets to increase the flux gradient and provide a convenient method of self cleaning. The magnets can be configured to operate in-line with the conveyor belt or cross-belt magnetic operation, both provide desirable characteristics while representing different methods of magnetic separation. Our suspended electro magnetic separators come in the air cooled suspension magnet format and the oil cooled suspension magnet, both are coupled with aluminium strips which allows for extra density of the electro magnetic coils for extra cooling characteristics and higher gradient field densities as well as preventing coil burnout therefore prolonging the life of the suspended magnetic separator well past the competitions use-by date.

Magnetic Wet Drum separation and High Gradient Magnetic Filtering.

Where dust levels make working environments injurious to health, wetting the product stream can reduce the incidence of air-born dust particles. Electro-magnetic separators - Wet magnetic Drum and Dry magnetic drum configurations are available for the sorting and separation of wet or fluid product streams containing very fine grain metal and mineral rich sludge, fine grain sand and crushed rock as well as metallic shavings all constitute valuable recyclable material which can be efficiently and reliably recovered using magnetic separation.

STEINERT Magnetic Wet Drum solutions often work in concert with high gradient magnetic filters capable of recovering even the finest recyclable particles from waste streams. Being Electromagnetically controlled the magnetic separators can be turned off to facilitate cleaning allowing recovered material to just fall away from the magnetic drum and filter fibers for collection.

Electro-magnetic separators - Eddy Current separators and Induction current sorting methods.

Many non-ferrous based scrap metals are only weakly magnetic but can still be recovered using Induction and Eddy current Separators. Induction currents are generated by high gradient magnetic fields which cause weakly magnetic particles to be lifted above the product stream, caught up in the magnetic field. They are then fired upon by jets of compressed air propelling them into hoppers for collection.

The STEINERT ISS the best in induction sorting equipment solutions, expertly recovering any non ferrous metals which may have been missed by primary magnetic separation processes or secondary eddy current separation.

Efficiently recovering any small metal flakes from mixed product streams, stainless steel, aluminium, tungsten, gold, silver, copper and brass can all be recovered. Given the range of recoverable metals in shredded electronic scrap product streams, the STEIENRT ISS is of immense import to efficient electronic scrap recovery operations and municipal solid waste processing, eliminating the need for hand sorting in many cases.

The STEINERT ISS has recently seen massive increases in throughput ability, 90% recovery of fine flaked metals means a clean metal free product stream. By reducing the size of particles on the product stream conveyor will also see increases in reliable recovery and allowing increased rates of throughput to put more profit on your bottom line.

Permanent Magnetic Separators and Electro magnetic separators for the ultimate in dry drum separation of heavy and coarse grade metal and mineral ore processing.

STEINERT permanent Magnetic drums, suspended magnetic bridges and suspended electro-magnetic head pulley separators are available for mounting above or below a product conveyor and efficiently remove harmful tramp iron. The Iron cores of copper meatballs and non-ferrous though weakly magnetic zorba metals from mixed media product streams can all be reliably recovered.

STEINERT suspended electro magnetic separators are flexible in their design, can be mounted in a variety of configurations to match the conveyor stream and are largely self cleaning. They are robust, have a long working life and are conveniently installed to existing product streams.

Master Series, Expert recovery of Steel, Iron and Aluminium fraction from waste streams.

STEINERT SteelMaster.

When it comes to Auto and scrap metal shredding, recovery of heavy media steel separating, you can’t beat STEINERTs SteelMaster. Parsing iron fraction from copper material such as is present when processing `meatballs`, the iron cores of copper wound electrical transformers.

STEINERT CanMaster

If you need to separate coarse grain Aluminium from Municipal Solid Waste Streams, Electronic scrap and end of life electronics the STEINERT CanMaster is one of the best entry level sorting and separation solutions available.

Powerful magnetic fields are generated in the magnetic drum beneath the belt creating fluctuations in the magnetic field, eddies and currents cause Aluminium particles to lift from off the conveyor where they are caught and ejected into hoppers for collection. High and Clean Aluminium output is ensured by a sophisticated eccentric pole system which ensures a high degree of accuracy in separation, easy maintenance and extreme durability.

STEINERT CanMaster represents one of the best ways to get your stream sorted and separated into profit from waste.

STEINERT FinesMaster

The STEINERT FinesMaster is expert in the art of separating metals from non-metals, both ferrous based strongly magnetic fraction and non-ferrous weakly magnetic fraction can be efficiently sorted and separated in a compact integrated system of time tested and industry proven components.

Developed for specialised tasks that satisfy the highest industry economic and technical standards, the STEINERT FinesMaster extracts fine fraction iron, ferrous and nonferrous metals in a single, economic and compact unit.

With extensive application for sorting crushed rock and fine fraction in Mining and Mobile Mining operations to Construction and Demolition waste and resource recovery plants. The STEINERT FinesMaster efficiently sorts and separates fine fraction mixed media streams down to 1mm with stunning accuracy yield and purity due to the use of a two stage magnetic separation process which recovers ferrous fraction and slightly magnetic sand and soil before the adjustable eccentric pole system recovers the non-ferrous metal particles from the waste stream.
