Steinert Global Sensor Sorting machines sort the Diamonds in the rough, from Kiberlite mineral Ore - Gemstone mining excellence and efficiency.

Both X-Ray transmission XRT and X-Ray Fluorescence XRF solutions are available.


Expertly sort non-ferrous metals using electro-magnetic induction sorting solutions.

Non ferrous metal particles such as Aluminium, Copper, Gold, Platinum, Tin, Tungsten, Silver and Stainless Steel can be conveniently recovered from mixed product streams of flake grade metal particles down to increasingly fine grain rock and sand from ore mining.

The wide variety of metals that can be recovered using electromagnetic induction, making the technique highly sought after in the electronic scrap recovery and for municipal solid waste processing applications. In many cases induction sorting solutions will remove the need for hand sorting allowing the product stream to flow at three to four times the rate of throughput.

By introducing a additional primary stage shredding or crushing to reduce the size of particles in the product stream, you can increase the efficiency through induction sorting, leading to substantial gains in efficiency.

Induction sorting is a powerful technology in the electronic and auto scrap metal recovery operations primarily because of it's high sensitivity and the wide variety of materials that can be detected and ejected from the product stream.

Advances made through Induction sorting methods improve recovery of recyclable materials through pre-concentration by significant amounts.

Fines ISS and ISS Induction Sorting Solutions at their peak.

Recent installations of the STEINERT Fines ISS and ISS Induction sorting solutions introduced to scrap metal recovery operations to sort fine flake particles of 10mm from mixed media streams, show a marked increase in profit.

Inserted after the Auto Shredder Residue streams and post eddy current processing to remove any small iron and weakly magnetic particles, recovery of even 1% of scrap metal showed pronounced short term profit.

The STEINERT Fines ISS has also proven itself to be expert in the sorting and separation of metals and stainless steel from mixed media streams of wood chips, glass, recycling, waste, sand, and tramp metal present in shredder residue and electronic scrap materials. This makes the STEINERT ISS range of sensor sorting and separation solutions invaluable to electronic scrap recovery, municipal solid waste processing plants and plastic recycling industries, for the efficient recovery of PET, PVC and shredded Plastic flake.

Although initially introduced to Auto Shredder Residue and scrap metal salvage plants, the STIENERT Fines ISS is finding many applications in Municipal Solid Waste recycling plants for clean yield for Waste to Energy conversion, with metal processing of incinerator bottom ash once the energy has been harvested.

Near Infrared (NIR) technology sees into the heart of matter.

Combining Near Infrared (NIR) and Hyper-Spectral-Imaging technology, the STIENERT NIS performs a complete analysis of material in the product stream. High resolution images of the product stream provide a 3D spatial mapping that sees into the heart of each particle in the product stream, informing the operator of what substance each particle is composed through a fast chemical and spectral analysis of the product stream.

The STIENERT NIS is compact and comes in mining and recycling industry standard working widths ready to integrate into your already established processing operation. Robust and durable, sealed and self contained the STEINERT NIS was designed specifically for the harsh environments and heavy product streams of the mining industry.

Significant gains have be seen in the mining and extraction of diamonds from Kimberlite ore. Find diamonds and precious gemstones before secondary rock crushing processes reduce the value of your yield. A completely sealed work space reduces loss and is the best method for securing a precious load.

X-Ray Sorting Solutions recover wealth from waste.

X-Ray sensors are capable of identifying a wide variety of materials by their spectrometric density and chemical composition. Metals, coal, plastics, wood, glass, mineral ores can all be detected and separation effected, using sophisticated X-Ray sensors to target objects on the conveyor stream.

The beauty of X-Ray technology for sorting and separating shredded, pre-treated non-ferrous scrap metal (Zorba), is that nothing is hidden, X-Ray technology can display to the operator exactly what is on the conveyor belt and what each fractions chemical composition is.
This makes the STEINERT XSS perfect for very complex sorting tasks that take place at high conveyor belt speeds, making recovery of valuable recyclable material from Auto shredder Residue for scrap metal recovery, electronic scrap and plastic recycling more profitable than ever before.

X-Ray Transmission - allows light metals to be sorted from heavy metals, or PVC from plastics, scrap wood from stone, aluminium castings from wrought alloys, and ore-bearing mineral blocks from waste rock. Pre-defined criteria preprogrammed in allow detection by X-Ray sensors to take place in a fraction of a second and allow recoverable particles to be ejected from the product stream by fast action jets of compressed air.

X-Ray Fluorescence - is expert when it comes to sorting alloys, metals and ores from mixed product streams. Complex composite elements like copper winding and iron cores found in meatballs ever present in Auto Shredder Residue and scrap metal and waste salvage operations. Stainless Steel and Aluminium can be differentiated for accurate separation by their chemical composition based on each particles specific low energy X-Ray emissions detected by the X-Ray sensor.

STEINERT XTS - X-Ray Transmission advances increase profit from diamond mining applications.

The STEINERT XTS represents the best in todays X-Ray Transmission technology.

X-Ray transmission (XRT) technology has recently seen dramatic improvements and significant gains to primary industries such as mining. Using the STEINERT XTS to recover large diamonds and precious gemstones from kimberlite mining applications is a breeze as the STEINERT XTS recognises diamonds in the source stream allowing for extraction and recovery of the diamonds before secondary stage crushing devalues the value of the stones. This process of pre-concentration of Kimberlite facilitates recovery of large size diamonds before secondary rock crushing reduces yield of diamonds from Kimberlite and gemstones hidden in mineral ores.

The STEINERT XTS uses X-Ray Transmission technology specifically designed with diamond mining applications in mind to produce a compact piece of equipment. Sealed for extra security and with higher resolution for increased accuracy while detecting value in the product stream.

The STEINERT XTS has also seen a great deal of success sorting Zorba metals from auto shredder residue, scrap metal applications, municipal solid waste, electronic scrap and PET flake from plastic waste in recycling applications.
By introducing very cost effective technology to the auto scrap recovery and recycling industries STEINERT XTS is your means to a competitive edge in a competitive industry.

Combine sorting technology and solutions to pre-concentrate profit from waste.

STEINERT KSS streamlines waste product and mineral ore sorting by combining optic sensors with X-Ray and induction sensor technologies allowing for more in-depth analysis and separation of mixed waste product streams.

The STEINERT KSS combines 3 different sensors, your choice - depending on what you want to sort, allowing you to sort by metal quality, material density, or color.

Utilising a sophisticated customer configurable array of X-Ray, optic and induction sensor technologies, the STEINERT KSS can sort whatever you can see. Conveniently servicable compressed air jets effect ejection of valuable material from the waste product stream.

With substantial increases documented covering throughput and purity statistics the STEINERT KSS is seeing wide application for the auto salvage, electronic scrap recovery, municipal solid waste, plastics recycling and recovery industries. A custom combination of STEINERT KSS optic, x-ray and induction sensors ticks all the boxes.
