  • Koln, DE.

Expert manufacture of Resource Recovery Equipment from Steinert Global delivers increased yield in Resources from Recycled Waste.

Resource Recovery via sorting solutions and technologies is one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in the world today, with opportunity for healthy profits from healthy, planet friendly waste recycling methods.

All mixed media resource product streams can now be detected with STEINERT Global sensors, sorted and recovered efficiently to very high degrees of purity making recycling a very profitable endeavour.


STEINERT Global specialise in sorting plastic product and plastic packaging, utilising sensors such as X-Ray and NIR Near Infra-Red optical colour sensors. Previously hard to detect clear plastic film and black plastic packaging can now be recovered efficiently making the business of recycling more profitable for many.

Many types of Plastic can be sorted and recovered for recycling, including PVC and PET, which are relatively cheap to recycle if they can be recovered in sufficient quantity at sufficient levels of purity.

Iron and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, copper, tin and tungsten can be separated from glass, wood, paper and plastics. The value of this level of separation cannot be underestimated for resource recovery from construction and demolition waste, municipal waste, waste to energy conversion as well as increasing the efficiency for mining applications.

Profitability from PVC and PET Plastics & Packaging Recovery with STEINERT sensor sorting solutions

Plastics and Packaging can be efficiently separated from waste product streams and then sorted further.

PVC, PET Flakes, Plastic Bottles and Polymers are all relatively cheap to recycle and turn around into valuable recyclable product.

Using sophisticated hyper-spectral imaging technology allows plastic waste streams to be sorted by material type, while near-infra-red and optical sensors target plastic particles and flake by colour ready for separation by ejection from the waste product stream by powerful underbelt jets of compressed air into collection hoppers.

Processing PVC, PET bottles, Plastic Packaging Waste into profitable Plastic Product for Recycling

After the initial shredding process delivers product into the conveyor feed, powerful magnetic separators in the STEINERT Suspension Magnets and STEINERT MT magnetic bridge remove potentially valuable iron or ferrous based metal from the product feed.

Eddy current separators with STEINERT NES and induction current sensing and sorting equipment such as the STEINERT ISS then remove any non-ferrous metals. Combinations of magnetic separation and induction current sorting are available in a number of working conveyor belt widths, making the STEINERT FinesMaster the best option for fine grain metal fraction recovery from highly mixed and heavy media product streams.

The highly reputable UniSort CanMaster reliably recovers aluminium from the waste product streams while STEINERT NIS combines Hyper-Spectral Imaging with sophisticated (NIR) Near Infra-Red cameras and spectrometer analysis. This allows the STEINERT NIS to analyse the product stream with a 3D spacial and spectrometric image to enable fast targeting and separation from the product stream. With the ability to sort and separate plastics, metal or minerals using NIR colour sorting and with a recovery rate of 5:1 the UniSort Flake is the best fine grain and flake sorting equipment on todays recycling equipment market.

Once the product stream is free from contaminants and consists largely of plastic flake STEINERT recommend their UniSort PR which utilises NIR and 3D hyper spatial camera technology to sort plastic flake by colour and material type. For more straight forward plastic flake sorting we recommend using the UniSort C optical camera technology to sort PET plastic bottles from PVC by colour.

Black plastic and clear plastic packaging can now be sorted efficiently using the innovative UniSort Film and UniSort Black which utilise 3D hyper spatial imaging to detect the clear plastic packaging and black plastic and dark objects which cannot be sensed and sorted using conventional NIR optical technology.

Recovering value by Recycling Metallurgical Slag from Industrial manufacturing process sand and degreasing baths.

STEINERT High Gradient Magnetic filters are trusted through out the steel industry with nearly all steel companies having a STEINERT HGF in consistent operation.

Magnetic Sorting and Separation of metallurgical slurry is most efficiently handled by the STEINERT NTS, a small wet drum magnetic separator through which the slurry is passed. The slurry is concentrated into a metal rich sludge which flows past powerful magnetic currents, causing the metallic elements to stick to the drum effecting extraction as the high gradient magnetic filter cake is lifted out of the slurry and the magnetic field.

Metallurgical Slag can contain many minerals and very fine grain metal particles which can be efficiently recovered from degreasing baths with remarkable efficiency due to our STEINERT NTS Wet Drum Magnetic separation processes. STEINERT ISS Induction Current separators and Eddy Current separators STEINERT NES are sophisticated sensors containing STIENERT NIS Near Infra-Red sensor technology or combinations of these solutions, also found in STEINERT FinesMaster for sorting and separating fine grain aluminium and stainless steel from sand and sludge.
