The STEINERT test centre in Australia gives customers the opportunity to test small and large samples on our ore sorting test machines, including the combination 4-sensor sorter.

Our application specialists will provide competent and specific assistance in finding a solution for your technical material recovery job. If desired, we can directly demonstrate the potential for recovering material with STEINERT sorting technology using your own test material. Our technical centre provides you with flexible ways of doing this:


  • Checking feasibility
  • Carrying out sorting trials
  • Verifying sorting capacity in throughput test
  • 3 separate sorting lines for the metal recycling, waste recycling and mining industries
  • 9 sorting machines in the metal sorting line
  • 7 special-purpose machines for particularly fine granulation
  • 200 m conveyor belt
  • 200 kW compressor capacity (can be enhanced to 360 kW)
  • 20 m³ air per minute
  • Over 35 staff members
  • 3,500 m²
  • 7 km from main site in Cologne


You can also benefit from directly implementing the very latest findings and developments in tried and tested STEINERT sorting technology.

Inauguration of the new Test Centre’s metal sorting line

STEINERT's steady growth has made it necessary to relocate. From now on, the new Test and Development Centre is located at Otto-Lilienthal-Strasse 13, 50259 Pulheim, Germany.

The increased capacity at the new site makes it possible to run more tests and react more quickly to customer demands and challenging applications. By merging three different divisions (metal recycling, waste recycling, mining), test and development engineers benefit from a mutual exchange and the most recent STEINERT technology, such as the STEINERT LSS | LIBS line sorting system and the STEINERT CHUTEC multi-sensor chute sorting system.

In addition to metal and mining sorting lines we are currently also creating a waste sorting line with cutting-edge NIR sorting technology for complex trials in elements including post-consumer packages and commercial waste.
