Primary Separation Technology - powerful permanent Suspension Magnets in dry drum and overhead bridge magnet arrays from STEINERT Germany.

STEINERT suspension magnets recover clean tramp iron from scrap metal which protects your downstream processing equipment from wear and tear. Our suspension magnets have been used in scrap metal and salvage operations globally for a number of decades to separate tramp iron and iron-bearing components.

STEINERT suspension magnets are suspended above conveyor belts and use powerful permanent, far-reaching magnetic fields to attract magnetic parts from the conveyor product stream.

Magnetic Separation Equipment and STEINERT Global

STEINERT Magnetic solutions come ready to handle a variety of applications, with Overhead suspension Magnets, Under belt suspension magnets, Wet Drum and Dry drum Magnetic separators, Permanent Magnets and Electro-Magnetic that make it easy to clean and recover ferrous minerals from Recycling waste. Magnetic Head Pulleys are used to draw out small pieces of tramp iron designed to protect your product stream processing equipment while recovering fine-grained iron.

STEINERT’s metal and magnetic separators remove Iron and tramp Iron from waste with precision, operating with proven efficiency in separating primary and secondary raw materials. Solutions are available for a number of applications in both permanent magnetic and electro-magnetic arrangements, to extract metals and minerals during scrap sorting processes.

Our magnetic and metal separators are widely used in the Auto Salvage, Plastics recovery facilities, Municipal Solid Waste and Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) for the recycling, and resource industries.

The STEINERT Global Eddy Current Separator

The patented STEINERT Eddy Current Separator (NES) works using an eccentric pole system. It yields great quantities and has a long service life and eliminates the need for hand sorting. The separator is used to effectively separate from shredder material, aluminium recycling, slag, household and municipal waste, used foundry sand, glass, electronic scrap (WEEE), wood chips and batteries.

The STEINERT NES with Eccentric Pole System is adjustable and highly flexible for increased recovery, and can be used to recover non-ferrous metals from a variety of materials.

Induction Sorting with STEINERT Germany

Certain metallic components - like stainless steel, aluminium and composite materials - can’t always be recovered by ferrous metal sorting processes and magnetic separation. The STEINERT ISS solves this problem by measuring the materials’ electrical conductivity through an electromagnetic wave emission process, which detects each individual particle’s signal difference.

The ISS automatically recovers stainless steel, aluminium and any other metals and is ideally suited to the recycling of household domestic waste, shredder residue, wood chips, glass, electronic scrap and mould sand.

Plastics Recovery from Municipal Solid Waste and Household Waste with STEINERT Germany in 2016.

Value can be found in Household and Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Aluminium, iron, paper and plastics, plastic bottles, copper and glass can be recovered for recycling purposes. Household and MSW is fast becoming a source of valuable raw material for industrialized countries. STEINERT’s recycling machinery delivers increased effectiveness in the extraction of sorted materials from municipal and household waste, offering proven Waste-to-Energy options.

STEINERT is the name synonymous with the most efficient household waste recycling machines in today's recycling industry.
