The compact modular solution
The processing of fine-grain material has become a popular recycling business in recent years. With separate magnetic drums and magnetic head pulleys, and the NES non-ferrous separator, STEINERT has been offering successful solutions in this field for several years.
The FinesMaster now offers a complete system concept without the need to add any interfaces, installations or control equipment. It is STEINERT’s complete solution for increased efficiency, control and adjustment needed in the sorting of fine metals.
What makes the FinesMaster special is the fact that it unites proven modular solutions into a single, compact unit. Module 1 is a two stage magnetic separator (MRB) which recovers small iron and also separates out ferrous dirt as semi-magnetic waste. Module 2 contains the NES 6119 high-frequency eddy current separator with its unique eccentric and adjustable pole system for the recovery of fine non-ferrous metal.
The FinesMaster works best in the range of 1 to 25 mm (1/25 to 1 inch) – a range where most eddy current systems have trouble recovering non-ferrous.
An upstream low intensity magnetic drum lifts small, clean iron out of the stream of materials while the downstream, high-speed neodymium belt separator loosens the material and removes any slightly magnetic waste. This reduces the volume of material fed into the eddy current separator by about 30 %.
