STEINERT Global combine sensor sorting technology and equipment solutions to pre-concentrate profit from waste.

STEINERT KSS streamlines waste product sorting by combining optic and colour sensors with near infrared (NIR), x-ray and induction sensor technologies allowing a more in-depth analysis and separation of mixed waste product streams.

The STEINERT KSS combines 3 different sensors, your choice - depending on what you want to sort, allowing you to sort by metal quality, material density, or colour.

With wide applications for the auto salvage, electronic scrap, municipal solid waste recycling and plastics recovery industries STEINERT KSS ticks all the boxes.

Utilising a sophisticated customer configurable array of x-ray, near infrared (NIR), optic, colour and induction sensors technology, the STEINERT KSS can sort whatever you can see. Conveniently serviceable compressed air jets effect ejection of valuable material from the waste product stream.

X-ray sorting solutions from STEINERT Global sees the hidden wealth in the waste.

X-ray sensors are capable of identifying a wide variety of materials by their spectrometric density and chemical composition. Metals, coal, plastics, wood, glass, mineral ores can all be detected and separation and ejection effected, using sophisticated x-ray sensors to target objects on the conveyor stream.

STEINERT XSS can display to the operator exactly what is on the conveyor belt and what each fractions chemical composition is. The advantages of using x-ray technology for sorting and separating shredded, pre-treated non-ferrous scrap metal (Zorba), is that nothing is hidden.

X-ray Transmission - allows light metals to be sorted from heavy metals, or PVC from plastics, scrap wood from stone, aluminium castings from wrought alloys, and ore-bearing mineral blocks from waste rock.
Pre-defined criteria preprogrammed to allow detection by x-ray sensors takes place in a fraction of a second, allowing recoverable particles to be ejected from the product stream by fast action jets of compressed air.

X-ray Fluorescence - is expert when it comes to sorting alloys, metals and ores from mixed product streams. Complex composite elements like copper winding and iron cores found in meatballs ever present in auto shredder residue feeds, scrap metal and waste salvage operations. Stainless Steel and Aluminium can be differentiated for accurate separation by their chemical composition based on each particles specific low energy x-ray emissions detected by the x-ray sensors.

This makes the STEINERT XSS perfect for very complex sorting tasks at high conveyor belt speeds, making auto shredder residue and scrap metal salvage, recycling metals and materials from electronic scrap as well as plastic recycling more profitable than ever before.

STEINERT ISS - induction separation solutions for sorting non-magnetic zorba metals.

When it comes to non-ferrous zorba metals, particles such as Aluminium, Copper, Gold, Platinum, Tin, Tungsten, Silver, Zinc and Stainless Steel the STEINERT ISS really comes into it’s own.

Non-ferrous metals that are non magnetic or only weakly magnetic can be sorted and separated using electro-magnetic induction solutions that utilise air currents to ejected the fraction from the product stream where they are collected in hoppers.

Conveniently recovering valuable recyclable metals from mixed waste product streams sorting and separating flake grade down to increasingly fine grain fraction and sand in ore mining applications.

Advances made through induction sorting methods improve recovery of recyclable materials by significant amounts.

STEINERT Fines ISS and ISS Induction Sorting Solutions at their peak.

Recent installations of the STEINERT Fines ISS and ISS Induction sorting solutions, introduced to scrap metal and stainless steel recycling plant recovery operations, tasked with sorting fine flake particles of 10mm from mixed media streams, show a marked increase in profit.

Inserted after primary auto shredder residue streams and post eddy current processing to remove any small iron and weakly magnetic particles, recovery of even 1% of metal showed pronounced short term profit.

Although initially introduced to auto shredder residue and scrap metal salvage plants, the STIENERT Fines ISS is finding many applications in municipal solid waste recycling plants for clean yield waste for waste to energy conversion. Secondary recovery processing of bottom ash from incinerators allow further metal recovery utilising wet drum and high gradient magnetic screens and filters.

The STEINERT Fines ISS has proven itself expert when it comes to sorting of metals such as stainless steel and aluminium from mixed media streams of wood chips, glass, recycling, waste, sand and tramp metal present in auto shredder residue and bulk electronic scrap. This makes the STEINERT ISS range of sensor sorting and separation solutions invaluable to municipal solid waste processing plants and the plastic recovery and recycling industries, for efficient recovery of PET flakes.

STEINERT XTS - X-ray Transmission advances increase profit from diamond mining applications.

The STEINERT XTS represents the best in todays x-ray Transmission technology.X-ray transmission technology is capable of sorting a great variety of valuable fraction from mixed media waste streams.

X-rays are transmitted across the product conveyor belt and x-ray sensors analyse the quantity of reflected or absorbed x-ray emissions determined by the atomic density of the product on the conveyor.

X-ray equipment solutions recognise material densities and can detect subtle differences between metals - heavy metal, light metal.
PVC from plastic waste, PET from plastic bottles, halogens and organic matter, composite elements - wood for example which may contain hidden nails and screws, diamonds and precious stones embedded in ore bodies can all be detected and displayed on screen to the operator.

Using advanced x-ray transmission technology specifically designed with diamond mining applications in mind, the STEINERT XTS is a compact piece of sorting equipment, sealed for extra security and with higher resolution monitors for increased accuracy as the x-ray sensors detect value on the product conveyor.

X-ray transmission (XRT) technology has recently seen dramatic improvements with significant gains using the STEINERT XTS to recover large diamonds and precious gemstones in kimberlite ore mining applications.
Pre-concentration of the Kimberlite ore allows recovery of large size diamonds before secondary rock crushing devalues the stones.

The STEINERT XTS has also seen a great deal of success sorting Zorba metals from auto shredder residue, scrap metal recovery applications, municipal solid waste, electronic scrap and PET flake from plastic waste in recycling operations.
By introducing this very cost effective technology to the auto scrap recovery and recycling industries STEINERT XTS is your means to a competitive edge in a profitable industry.

Nothing is concealed to the STEINERT XTS - x-ray transmission equipment solutions.

Near Infrared (NIR) technology from STEINERT Global sees in to the heart of atomic matter.

Combining near infrared (NIR) and hyper-spectral-imaging technology, the STIENERT NIS performs a complete spectral analysis of material in the product stream. High resolution images of objects on the product conveyor are displayed to the operator providing a 3D spatial analysis that sees into the heart of each particle using a rapid spectral analysis of all the objects in the product stream.

The STIENERT NIS is compact and comes in mining and recycling industry standard working widths ready to integrate into your already established processing operation. Robust and durable, sealed and self contained the STEINERT NIS was designed specifically for the harsh environments and heavy product streams of the recycling and mining industries.

With near infrared technology able to analyse and sort very complex composite materials, many opportunities are open for complex recycling processes to increase profits from more efficiently processed product streams.
Many industries are reaping benefits of utilising near infrared equipment solutions, increasing efficiency in the auto shredder and scrap metal recovery industries, sorting PVC from PET in plastics recycling, recycling of solid waste from municipal, construction and demolition refuse as well as increasing the yield to mining plant operations.
