STEINERT provides solutions to produce more gemstones like diamonds at less opex

Waste rock sorting as a pre-concentration process for kimberlite diamond operations was never used in conventional diamond processing plants. Current kimberlite ore bodies tend to be more contaminated with barren waste rock. It has thus become more pertinent to implement efficient and cost effective waste rock sorting processes to improve diamond recovery and prevent damage, which traditional processes are continuously experiencing.

STEINERT has the perfect solution to efficiently separate kimberlites from waste rock. The STEINERT NIS with its (near infrared) NIR technology can increase the production and reduce energy and wear costs.

STEINERT provides innovative solutions for rough-diamond final recovery sorting using x-ray transmission (XRT) sensor technology:

Early in the process diamonds are recovered through the STEINERT XSS T, a high-capacity sorter. It recovers the diamonds before the next crushing stage which could potentially damage diamonds.

This coarse size diamond recovery process eliminates the need of an expensive density separation pre-concentration process.

Our final recovery sorters STEINERT XTS provide perfect diamond detection and recovery at high throughput rates. These automated sorting systems provide hands-off solutions which is vital for the strict security standards required in diamond recovery sort houses.
