Separate shredder scrap reliably and efficiently

With us your shredder system is best equipped: Our high-performance STEINERT magnetic separation components make it possible.

Shredder plant deliver a substantial momentum in the recovery of iron and steel scrap. With drive unit outputs of up to 12,000 HP they shred the input material, such as car bodies, in seconds.

This high-energy shredding of the metals contained in end-of-life vehicles places high demands on the material and technology of the shredding system. All the more decisive, then, is the subsequent separation of the recoverable iron scrap for the economic operation of a shredder plant. With us, your shredder plant is best equipped:
Our robust, powerful STEINERT magnetic separation components prepare your shredder installation for any eventuality. The following benefits are something you can rely on:

STEINERT MT magnetic drum with electromagnets or permanent magnets secure high material yields and purity levels that are attractively marketable. And with working widths between 500 mm and 3400 mm, the right size is available for every task.

And another plus: our high-quality ANOFOL bobbin in anodised aluminium strip. This product, developed by us in-house, guarantees the lasting quality of the separation magnets in the demanding environment of your shredder plant.

You can achieve more at the same time. After all, with the ‘Hybrid’ version of our STEINERT MT magnetic drum, which combines the permanent magnets and electromagnets in a unique way, up to 30% increased performance is possible.

For separating small pieces of copper from iron scrap we also offer an ideal solution. The STEINERT SteelMaster intelligently combines magnetic field forces and ballistic effects and allows downstream manual sorting to be reduced to a minimum. Up to 110 t of low-copper steel scrap can be produced per hour that is extremely valuable. The copper impurities are concentrated in 20-30% of the overall mass stream - which makes the manual sorting stage significantly more efficient.

Your benefits:

  • Mature, durable design of STEINERT MT magnetic drum
  • High-quality ANOFOL bobbin manufactured by us in-house
  • Hundreds of magnetic drums in use worldwide
  • STEINERT SteelMaster for separation of copper pieces
  • Trusted, durable technology from the technological leader in metal recycling
