Steinert are one of the world leaders when it comes to Recycling Equipment. With years of European experience we are equipped for any recycling application.

The 2 main devices are;

Eddy Current System

Our eccentric pole system produces the cleanest non-ferrous metals with high recovery rates even for smallest particles.

The patented Steinert Eddy Current Separator NES, featuring its eccentric pole system, is the ideal tool for the job – for more than 20 years! High yield and long service life are the benefits that ensure efficient and long-term operating results.
Applications are Aluminium recycling, shredder material, municipal waste, slag, foundry sand, glass, electronic scrap (WEEE), wood chips, batteries.

Technology – A non-ferrous metal separator consists of a short conveyor. A rapidly rotating system of permanent magnets is incorporated in the head drum. The magnets generate strong eddy currents in the non-ferrous metal parts which eject the NF parts from the rest of the material flow. The special feature of Steinert’s non-ferrous metal separator is the eccentric pole system. The pole system is adjustable, so that the application of force can be optimally adjusted for maximum ejection efficiency. The eccentric pole system can increase the metal yield by 50%. The service life of the belt and drum shell is considerably lengthened.

Induction Sorting System

The ISS is the perfect solution to recover the additional ferrous and non-ferrous metals not recovered by the ECS processing or magnetic separation!The ISS provides efficient and effective automated recovery of all metals including stainless steel, eliminating the need for hand picking.

Applications – The primary applications for the ISS are shredder residue, electronic scrap, wood chips, glass, and domestic waste.

Technology – The technology of the ISS induction sorting system combines sophisticated sensor technology and computer-controlled air jets to quickly detect and eject metals. The result – the ISS provides increased economic efficiency, improved quality of the product, recovery of valuable materials, and consistent high output.

How it works – The previously separated bulk material is transported by a fast conveyor belt to a sorting zone. Below the conveyor belt there is an arrangement of sensors. These sensors analyse the material over the whole width of the conveyor belt by means of magnetic induction. As soon as metallic particles are detected, electronic signals are sent to the central computerised control unit. The compressed air jets, individually controlled by the programming, push the detected metals over the diverter gate.

Steinert’s team of skilled technicians and engineers possess years of experience and enormous talent. Steinert is the only manufacturer of sorting technology working on both magnetic separation and sensor sorting in their entirety. Steinert’s testing facility is ready to test every customer’s specific material.

Sanwest Pty Ltd was established in 1987 when the Equipment Division of Mitchell Cotts Engineering was sold to the then Manager Mr Ken Hollick. With other existing personnel who had a long association with Australian industry, the new company was established to continue marketing the products to the Australian mining and process industries.
