Expert Dry Magnetic Separation equipment for the recovery of heavy and coarse grade Iron and Ferrous fraction from mixed media recycling streams from STEINERT Global.

Iron and Ferrous based metals are strongly magnetic and coarse, often causing excessive wear on more sensitive downstream equipment.

This makes dry magnetic separators indispensable to any primary stage sorting and separation processes in the auto shredder reside, scrap metal.

Dry magnetic bridges and pulleys are used extensively to extract iron and ferrous based metal fraction in waste recycling streams from auto shredder and scrap metal shredder feeds.

Dry Magnetic Separators are often magnetic drums mounted over or under a scrap metal recycling shredder feed.

Removing tramp iron and metallic fraction early in the recycling process is very important to overall costs saving as well as direct profit from clean raw recyclable metal fraction.

For the same reason, dry drum magnetic separators are important components in any waste to energy, plastic recycling from municipal and household waste recycling streams.

Dry Magnetic Separators protect more sensitive downstream sorting and separation equipment from the harmful effects of heavy and coarse grade ferrous fraction from shredder and crusher feeds.

This provides opportunity for pre-concentration to yield higher recovery rates from otherwise waste material as well as protecting your investment from servicing of downstream equipment.

Non Ferrous metal fraction is often weakly magnetic so can still be recovered using electro-magnetically controlled magnetic currents as well as some of the most powerful natural magnets to extract zorba metals like aluminum, brass, copper, lead, magnesium, stainless steel, nickel, tin, and zinc.

STEINERT dry magnetic drums, magnetic bridges and electro-magnetic dry drum separators are available for mounting above or below a product conveyor and efficiently remove harmful tramp iron, gangue, copper meatballs and zorba from all heavy mixed media waste streams.

STEINERT dry magnetic separators are known for their reliability, they are robust, have a long working life and are easily installed to existing product streams.

Wet Drum magnetic separation through High Gradient Magnetic Filtering in industrial mining operations through to waste to energy and substitute fuel processes.

Magnetic wet drum separators are a large part of primary sorting and separation technology. Magnetic Wet Drum Separators are used extensively in mining and valuable mineral rich applications to reduce air-born dust that makes working environments hazardous. Magnetic separators are also indispensable in the sorting and separation of metal components from household wast, demolition and construction waste as well as electronic scrap, scrap metal and auto salvage operations.

At the other end of the recycling spectrum, once magnetic separators have recovered recyclable metals leaving clean organic waste for waste to energy conversion. After the waste has been burned up to recover the energy the remaining ash can again be processed to recover any metal and magnetic materials not burned up in the energy harvesting process.

Incinerator Ash can be hazardous to work with and any working environment such as mining where dust levels and air-born particles are a consideration it is often common practice to mix the product stream with water.
A metal and mineral rich sludge results containing very fine grain metal tailings, crushed rock and sand grade particles rich in valuable recyclable material.

Initially the slurry and mineral rich sludge is subjected to Electro-magnetic and electrically controlled magnetic wet drum separators to remove the largest fraction of magnetically sensitive particles.
The the slurry is poured through STEINERT high gradient magnetic filters and magnetic screens like the STEINERT HGF and HGS.

This recycling equipment is capable of recovering the finest recyclable particles from waste streams, sludge and mineral rich slurry. Metals are conveniently recovered by simply shutting down the electro magnetic power to the powerful electromagnets, the valuable metals and minerals simply fall off into hoppers.

Magnetic separation techniques are not new, they are trusted not only because they remove tramp iron, gangue, zorba metals including copper present in meatballs, they are trusted because they are reliable and have very low maintenance characteristics.

STEINERT have a range of Magnetic bridge, suspension drums and underbelt mountable magnetic drums that integrate easily with existing waste processing streams.

Electro-magnetic separators - Eddy Current separators and Induction current sorting methods

Zorba metals - aluminum, brass, copper, lead, magnesium, stainless steel, nickel, tin, and zinc are non-ferrous scrap metals that are only weakly magnetic but can still be recovered using Induction and Eddy current Separators.
Zorba metals contain much potential for wealth from waste recycling particularly in municipal and household waste applications such as plastics recycling and end-of-life electronic scrap recycling.

Induction currents can generate high gradient magnetic fields which cause weakly magnetic particles to be lifted above the product stream, caught up in the magnetic field.
They are then fired upon by jets of compressed air propelling them into hoppers for collection.

Similarly, Eddy currents are electro-magnetic fields given a rotation, the spinning magnetic vortex affects weakly magnetic particles causing them to be elevated above the conveyor belt, and recovered using compressed air jets for collection in bins and hoppers for secondary recovery processes.

Induction and Eddy Current separators are most useful when it comes to complex sorting tasks, they are capable of sorting a great variety of different materials. This has proven to be integral to the sorting of plastics from municipal and household waste also much recyclable material can be derived from the very small components of shredded end-of-life electronic scrap.
