  • Bairro Castelo, BRAZIL BR.

STEINERT manufacture and globally distribute sophisticated magnetic separation technology and sensor sorting equipment for complex sorting tasks. Our focus at this time in Brazil is high yield diamond and precious gem sorting solutions

As specialists in separating valuable minerals from heavy and coarse grade fraction in waste rock from mining or heavy mixed waste product streams found in construction and demolition waste or municipal solid waste streams.

Much material wealth is hidden in the resources beneath our feet, metals such as Iron and non-ferrous metals such as Aluminium, Copper, Tin and Tungsten can be sorted and separated from waste rock streams.


STEINERT Global products are of proven efficiency. Through constant use in mining operations, resource recovery and recycling plant operations the world over their reliable durability is trusted by some of the worlds largest companies.

Using a variety of methods including magnetic separation, electro-magnetic separation such as induction and eddy current separation, most metals can be sorted and separated from non metals such as plastic, wood, glass, stone and timber which is of immediate benefit to the mining industry and resource recovery from construction and demolition waste and municipal solid waste.

To take your mining operations right where the resources are located, STEINERT can combine all these technologies into readily deployable units which can be packed into shipping containers and transported anywhere there is a flat site upon which to set up your mining operation.

This makes STEINERT Global equipment highly relevant for todays industrialised world of high and low tech mining, manufacturing, recycling and the resource recovery industries.

Magnetic Separation and its importance in the recovery of iron and ferrous based mineral content in heavy grade mixed media streams from mining and mobile mining operations.

Magnetic separators are robust, have a long working life and are easily installed to existing product streams. STEINERT Magnetic drums, magnetic bridges and electro-magnetic wet drum separators are available for mounting above or below a product stream conveyor and are an investment in protecting your downstream equipment from harmful tramp iron, gangue, metaballs and zorba.

Magnetic separators have been around for some time and are trusted as reliable equipment components for sorting and separating heavy and coarse grade mixed media product in waste streams.

Used extensively to extract materials with high compositions of iron and ferrous based minerals, tending to be strongly magnetic and often present in the mining of diamonds, gemstones, coal, silicon, magnetite based minerals and ores. Just the job for sorting heavy mixed media waste streams such as municipal waste, construction and demolition waste, electronic scrap recovery, scrap metal salvage and recovery from auto shredder feeds.

Induction and Electro-magnetic, Near Infrared and X-Ray sensor sorting for separation and extraction of valuable materials in medium and fine grain mixed fraction waste product streams.

Non-ferrous metals that are non magnetic or only weakly magnetic can be sorted and separated using induction currents to remove them from the product stream and collected in hoppers. Non ferrous metal particles such as Aluminium, Copper, Gold, Platinum, Tin, Tungsten, Silver and Stainless Steel can be conveniently recovered from mixed media product streams down to increasingly fine grain.

STEINERT also make sophisticated imaging options utilising specialised camera technology incorporating optical, colour and spectral recognition with (NIR) Near infrared and X-Ray technology both X-Ray transmission (XRT) and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) solutions are available.

Optical, spectrum analysis and colour recognition sensors as well as Near Infrared and X-Ray based sensor technology which are used extensively in plastics recycling, indeed most plastics can now be detected and recycled for profit.

X-Ray (XRT) technology has recently seen dramatic improvements with significant gains in recovering value from diamond and precious gemstone mining applications which allow for pre-concentration that allows recovery of large scale diamonds before secondary rock crushing takes place, devaluing the product stream by preserving their size and value in a securely sealed enclosure with the STIENERT XTS.

The Importance of Electro-Magnetic induction in separation technologies - recovering valuable minerals in secondary stage sorting processes.

Many valuable materials are non or only weakly magnetic and therefore cannot be extracted using conventional magnetic equipment and technology. However, there are solutions that allow for detection of valuable non-ferrous metals such as Aluminium, Copper, Gold, Platinum, Tin, Tungsten, Silver and Stainless Steel. The very fact that these metals are non or only slightly magnetic facilitate their recovery from the mixed waste product stream as they are sensitive to variable magnetic fields.

Eddy Current separators and induction current separators generate fluctuating magnetic fields at the end of the product stream conveyor, that lifts weakly magnetic substances up off the belt and into the air where they can be captured in hoppers. STEINERT Eddy Current and Induction current separators feature an operator tunable eccentric pole system that expertly separates non ferrous ores down to fine grained fraction to a high degree of purity, preserving the value of recovered product.

STEINERT can combine Wet and Dry magnetic drum separation with their array of sophisticated optical, colour, 3D spatial and spectral recognition as well and their range of Near Infrared and X-Ray transmission and fluorescence into readily plug and play mobile mining units. STEINERT MOBILE units can be packed into a series of transportable trucking containers and transported anywhere there is a flat site and resources to mine.

STIENERT have a range of mobile mining units incorporating everything you need to take your mining operation on the road and set up right where the resources lie. STEINERT mobile mining units are completely plug and play, can be packed into shipping containers and transported anywhere there are resources in the ground. STEINERT mobile mining units come with self powered options and combine combinations of magnetic drum separators, electro-magnetic separators, optical, colour and spatial sensors, Near Infrared NIR and X-Ray transmission and fluorescence.

Sophisticated sensor sorting technologies from the electromagnetic spectrum.

In addition to using magnetic and electro magnetic induction and magnetic currents, using sophisticated optical, colour, 3D spatial and spectrometric camera technology, X-Ray and Near Infrared sensors, plastics, if recovered in sufficient quantities of high purity are profitably recyclable.

Equipment from STEINERT has a global reputation for reliability, durability and customer service. STEINERT is a name associated with robust technology that operates optimally to high degrees of purity and throughput, expertly, down to increasingly fine grain fractions.

Unisort - specialised sensors for sorting hard to detect and very fine grain plastic fraction from mixed media waste product streams - Unisort is available exclusively from STEINERT Global.

Many plastics such as PVC, PET, plastic bottles, PVC, LPDE and Polystyrenes are profitably recyclable if available in sufficient quantity and degree of purity.

STEINERT optical, colour, 3D spatial and spectral recognition cameras can be combined with Near Infrared (NIR), X-Ray Transmission (XRT) and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) to recoup profit from all waste plastics. Plastic product streams can be efficiently sorted down to very fine grain flake. These specialised camera and optical sensor options are certainly worth considering for any municipal solid waste process facility upgrades as well as plastic recycling and end-of-life electronic scrap recovery plant improvements.

STEINERT Unisort specialised sensors can detect previously difficult to detect materials such as black plastic packaging, clear plastic film and reflective plastic film wrapping. These difficult materials extensively present in domestic, household and municipal mixed media waste product streams previously had to be hand sorted - no more.

STEINERT Unisort have expert reporting systems that display relevant, operator configurable data on the product streams value and content second by second. This invaluable information makes it possible for operators to asses the value of the product stream in real time as the product passes the sensor array.

Extreme levels of accuracy add value to recycling plastics in plastic processing plants by making the process of sorting and separation more efficient. This level of reporting allows the operator to asses, in real time the value present on the product stream conveyor, essential information for waste to energy conversion solutions.

Improvements in optical and colour recognition utilising (NIR) Near infrared camera and (XRT) X-Ray Transmission equipment is now making it possible to detect previously undetectable black plastic, clear plastic and reflective plastic film packaging from mixed media waste streams bringing significant opportunity for increased profit from domestic, household, municipal waste recycling and automotive shredder and electronic shredder product feeds.
