Sophisticated magnetic Induction, Optical, Color, X-ray, Near Infrared (NIR), 3D spatial and spectral sensor options from STEINERT.

  • : Kentucky, USA.

Using Electro-magnetic Induction, non-ferrous metals that are non magnetic or only weakly magnetic can be sorted and separated utilizing air currents to eject them from the product stream where they are collected in hoppers via the Steinert Global ISS System.

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

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


Combine sorting technology and solutions to pre-concentrate profit from waste.

STEINERT KSS streamlines waste product sorting by combining optic sensors with x-ray and induction sensor technologies allowing for 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 color.

Utiliszing a sophisticated customer configurable array of x-ray, optic and induction sensors technology, the STEINERT KSS can sort whatever you can see. Conveniently serviceable compressed air jets eject valuable material from the waste product stream.

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

X-ray Sorting Solutions recover wealth from waste.

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

This makes the STEINERT XSS perfect for very complex sorting tasks that take place at high conveyor belt speeds, making auto shredder residue feeds for scrap metal recovery, electronic scrap recovery and plastic recycling more profitable than ever before.

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, separation and ejection effected, using sophisticated x-ray sensors to target objects on the conveyor stream.

X-ray Transmission - allows light metals to be sorted from heavy metals, or PVC from plastics, scrap wood from stone, aluminum castings from wrought alloys, and ore-bearing mineral blocks from waste rock. Pre-defined criteria which is preprogrammed into the control panel allow x-ray detection sensors to analyse in a fraction of a second and allow recoverable particles to be removed 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, scrap metal and waste salvage operations. Stainless Steel and Aluminum 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 sensor.

Advances made through Induction sorting methods improve recovery of recyclable materials using pre-concentration by significant amounts.

STEINERT Fines ISS and STEINERT ISS Induction Sorting Solutions are at their peak performance.
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 metal 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 waste for waste to energy conversion. A further metal processing of incinerator bottom ash can be used to recover any remaining metal particles.

The STEINERT Fines ISS has also proven itself expert in the sorting and separation of metals and stainless steel from mixed media waste streams of wood chips, glass, recycling waste, sand, removal of tramp metal present in auto shredder residue and electronic scrap material.

These recycling machines have wide application in the recycling industry making the STEINERT ISS range of sensor sorting and separation solutions invaluable to municipal solid waste processing plants, plastics recovery and recycling industries, for the most efficient recovery of PET and plastic flake.

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 (XRT) technology has recently seen dramatic improvements and significant gains using the STEINERT XTS recovering large diamonds and precious gemstones in kimberlite ore mining applications.
Kimberlite pre-concentration allows recovery of large size diamonds before secondary rock crushing devalues the product.

The STEINERT XTS uses x-ray Transmission technology specifically designed with diamond mining applications in mind to produce a compact piece of equipment, sealed for extra security and with higher resolution for increased accuracy while detecting value in the product stream.

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.

With the STEINERT XTS, significant gains have be seen in the mining and extraction of diamonds from Kimberlite ore. Find diamonds and precious gemstones before secondary rock crushing processes reduce the value of your yield. A completely sealed work space reduces loss and is the best method for securing a precious load.

Near Infrared (NIR) technology sees in to the heart of matter.

STEINERT make sophisticated imaging options utilising specialised camera technology incorporating optical, color and spectral recognition with NIR Near infrared and x-ray technology both x-ray transmission XRT and x-ray Fluorescence XRF solutions are available.

STEINERT NIS Combines Near Infrared (NIR) and Hyper-Spectral-Imaging technology to perform a complete analysis of material in the product stream. High resolution images of the product stream provide a 3D spatial analysis that sees into the heart of each particle in the product stream, informing the operator of what substance each particle is composed through a fast spectral analysis of 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 mining industry.
