Scrap Metal Recovery from Auto Shredder Residue

Waste Material, Plastics and Solid Waste - Recycling Equipment in the USA

Steinert is a global leader in recycling and mining industry solutions. We build and install efficient, reliable resource recovery equipment, providing customers with class-leading levels of material yield, mineral purity and equipment protection.






In the USA our main focus is on the Scrap Metal, Salvage and Recycling industries, including Municipal Solid Waste recovery and Plastics Recovery facilities. We are leaders in the design and installation of recycling separators and waste sorting technology.


Scrap metal inAuto Shredder Residue

The Steinert KSS Combined Sorting System is just one of our Scrap metal & Auto Shredder Residue solutions, using a sophisticated system of sensors to intelligently sort a range of materials. The Steinert Finesmaster allows fine-grain material to be processed, separating ferrous and non-ferrous material with a magnetic separator before using high-frequency eddy current separation to recover non-ferrous material.


Magnetic Drum Separation Equipment

For high-purity electronic scrap recovery, the Steinert MT Magnetic Drum is available in both overbelt and underbelt format. HYBRID Drum uses extremely powerful ANOFOL coils to enhance efficiency by around 30%. The technology is also useful in the processing of shredder material, minerals and woodchips, and municipal waste, as well as steel mill slag and incinerator ash.


Eddy Current Separation Equipment

Eddy Separation is used to combine non ferrous metal separator techniques with the recovery of non-metallic material. The Steinert NES Eddy Current Separator uses an eccentric pole system to improve ejection efficiency in relation to traditional systems. Belt and drum shell wear rates are greatly improved. The NES can deal with a grain size of 1-200mm, and offers a throughput of 40m3/h*m (* depending on the respective conditions).


Induction Sorting Solutions

Increasing the quantity of materials recovered, and the quality of the product, is made possible with the Steinert ISS Induction Sorting System. This waste sorting technology can recover material (for example, stainless steel) which escapes the Eddy Current or Magnetic Separation processes. The ISS is far more efficient than traditional manual sorting methods.


Waste Material and Plastics Recovery

Less hard wearing material can of course be more complex to separate, because of the variety of materials present. The UniSort PR uses cutting-edge Hyper Spectral Imaging cameras to break new ground in the sorting of packaging and plastics from electronic scrap, with five possible working widths of between 1000 and 2800mm.


Suspension Magnets

Steinert Suspension Magnets are used all over the world in mining and resource recovery, as well as bulk materials handling and port loading. Equipment protection often depends on being able to remove tramp metal; recovering ferrous material is essential to the recycling industry. Steinert supplies permanent overhead suspension magnets as well as oil-cooled and air-cooled electromagnets.


X-ray, Near Infra-Red and Colour Sensing

The Steinert XSS X-ray sorting system uses X-ray technology to identify a range of different materials and material densities, whether light & heavy metals, organic material, PVC & other plastics, wood, stone and so on. Working with grain sizes of between 10 and 200mm, it offers a throughput of 40-200cbm/h*m; for minerals, up to 150t/h*m (* depending on the respective conditions). The XSS F (for Fluorescence) system separates various metallic materials by examining surfaces.


Induction Sorting Solutions

The ISS is also widely used in waste material and plastics recovery. The efficiency of the Steinert ISS can be increased even further by additional screening and crushing before use. Sensors detect metallic material and use highly sensitive computerized air jets to separate it, pushing electrically conductive material over the diverter gate.


Mining Industrial Minerals and Ores

Steinert also offers high quality solutions for the mineral and ore mining industries in the USA, using a variety of technologies including Magnetic Separators, Suspension Magnets and X-ray Sensing. Our goal is the constant improvement of systems that assist in producing market-ready products, focusing on material yield, equipment protection and purity.


Separating Iron and Ores from Sand and Dust using High Grade Magnetic Separators

Minimizing ore loss throughout the separation process is a key focus of Steinert's ore sorting solutions. Our Wet Drum Separators improve on traditional techniques, to the point where recovery of Heavy Media is very close to 100% efficient. Ease of use is extremely important, partly in order to keep the amount of time spent optimizing machinery to a minimum, and we continue to concentrate on time savings in WDS technology.


Primary Separation Technology - Suspension Magnets

Depending on the grade and type of ore being worked with, our Overhead Suspension Magnets may be the solution. The powerful magnetic fields remove tramp iron from mining material, working with a belt width of up to 3000mm. The magnets' design incorporates highly efficient cooling, reducing downtimes.


X-Ray Sensing and Induction Sorting Equipment and Solutions

The ability to process materials efficiently, using the minimum amount of energy, water and chemicals, is at least as important to the mineral industry as locating new deposits. Steinert offers highly advanced industrial mineral processing equipment which has been designed and built with these efficiencies in mind. The Steinert XSS uses either X-Rays (XSS T) or Fluorescence (XSS F) to recognize and sort a huge variety of materials quickly and accurately.


Full Separation Plant and Mobile Sorting Plant solutions

Increased demand for recycled metals in the coming years, particularly from the aluminum sheet industry, will call for improved methods of extracting high quality material. The Steinert Dry Media Separation Plant increases revenues by allowing more efficient separation as well as easier, faster adaptation to ever-changing markets and different tasks. We also offer a number of mobile solutions including Mining Plant, Resource Recovery Plant and Recycling Plant.


Combined X-Ray Sensing, near Infra-Red and Induction sorting technology

Our mobile plant equipment for the mining industry offers a combination of the latest in highly advanced sensor technology, including X-Ray sorting, NIR and Induction.


Mobile High Grade Magnetic Separators

Steinert's Mobile series includes both stand-alone units and combinations that add up to a durable, reliable mobile processing plant. The ISS Induction Separation System is one of the most effective examples of metal separation equipment and is available in mobile format.
