STEINERT design, build and manufacture equipment for the mining and mineral resource recovery industry particularly the pre-concentration processing of metal and mineral ore processing of coal, tramp iron and tramp metal - as well as processing MSW, electronic scrap and Auto Shredder Residue.

Final Sorting and Safe Recovery of Diamonds and Precious Gems and Stones with the XTS sorting solution from STEINERT

Early sorting when processing diamond-borne material sees recovery via the STEINERT XSS T. The XSS T machine recovers the diamonds prior to the next crushing stage which has a potential to damage the diamonds. Our coarse size diamond recovery process eliminates the need for the traditional density separation pre-concentration process. Our final stage of diamond recovery leverages the STEINERT XTS sorter, a robust machine with perfect detection means for diamonds and high material throughput rates.

Ore processing and pre-concentration solutions that provide high yield, high purity product recovery - is our primary focus.

When it comes to pre-concentration Mineral sorting and Ore processing in mining facilities and mobile mining operations, our experience in mining plant solutions is unrivaled. As a leading supplier to the country's coal mining, mineral recovery and ore sorting solutions, be it copper, tungsten, tin, gold, manganese, coal, nickel – ask us how we can sort it for you!

The benefits of pre-concentration to increase mineral yield and protect downstream equipment are well documented and easily achievable with STEINERT Dry/Wet drum magnetic separation and optical sensor sorting solutions. Pre-concentration processing of Coal ie: Coal de-stoning, de-ashing and de-shaling reach high levels of purity when extracting Coal from coarse size crushed ore providing value from low-grade stockpiles. Pre-concentration sorting equipment can be located close to the crushing and grinding circuits consequently reducing haulage costs and reducing landfill.

We Manufacture high grade Dry Drum Separation solutions for dry process coal sorting and pre-concentration processing of heavy media, for mining operations in Brazil and South America.

Magnetic separation solutions in both Dry drum and wet drum configurations are available from STEINERT.

STEINERT offers a broad range of solutions for Coal processing, specialising in Coal de-stoning, de-ashing and de-shaling operations which improve your pre-concentration processes. Mineral and ore processing includes our famed MT Dry Magnetic Drum and dry process overhead suspension magnets, WDS Wet Drum Separators, Eddy Current Separators and Induction Separation as well as sophisticated optical, near infra-red and X-Ray sensors.

Leading the way in Wet Drum Magnetic Separation

STEINERT’s permanent magnet WDS have been successful for decades in the iron ore and heavy media processing industries. In iron ore processing, the WDS separates magnetic iron ore such as magnetite from waste rock - at P80’s commonly down to 28µm. Depending on conditions, the WDS throughput figure can reach 150 m3/h*m. STEINERT has continued to develop several aspects of the WDS for Heavy media recovery of magnetite or ferrosilicon - and is near on 100% efficient. We also supply Wet Drum separation to many large mining companies, and are constantly developing our range in response to industry needs.

STEINERT’s permanent magnet WDS have been benefiting the iron ore processing and heavy media operations 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 which now approaches 100% efficiency, and the machinery is now more user friendly than ever before.

Eddy Current systems for non-ferrous metal separators, used wherever non-ferrous metals have to be recovered

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.
