STEINERT NES Eddy Current Separator

The mechanical recovery of non-ferrous metals is the economic basis of all recycling – and the STEINERT NES Eddy Current Separator with Eccentric Pole System fulfils the associated requirements perfectly! High yield and long life are the qualities that make for assured, long-term operating result.

Applications for the STEINERT NES

Shredder material: Light and heavy shredder fractions contain substantial non-ferrous metals. Up to 5% non-ferrous metals are contained in the light fraction – valuable materials which, even today, often end up in the landfill. The heavy fraction is dry-processed to recover clean, saleable non-ferrous metals after screening and magnetic separation. The non-ferrous metals separator produces a clean aluminium concentrate. 

Refuse processing: Non-ferrous metal separators are used to recover metal packaging from municipal waste.

Other areas of application include compost, glass, paper processing and the recycling of WTE bottom ash – for both the maximum recovery of valuable metals and for metal-free products. 

Non-ferrous metal-free scrap wood is becoming more important as an alternative fuel and a raw material for the derived timber products industry. The STEINERT non-ferrous metal separator also demonstrates especially high capabilities in the processing of electronic scrap, cables, printed circuit boards and foundry sands. Even finely divided non-ferrous metals with grain sizes down to one mm can be separated thanks to the eccentric system.
