STEINERT FinesMaster

STEINERT FinesMaster – the perfect solution for multi-stage recovery of fine metals

Fine metal recovery in one system thanks to compact, three-stage sorting

The processing of fine-grained material in metal recycling has developed into a lucrative business in recent years. At STEINERT we have already for a long time been supporting the metal separation sector with proven solutions, such as our magnetic drums, magnetic pulleys and eddy current separators.
The STEINERT FinesMaster now offers you a complete system concept without complex interfaces, installations and control technology and represents the complete STEINERT solution to your "more" in terms of efficiency, especially in the sorting of fine metals.

The special feature of the STEINERT FinesMaster is its compact combination of proven sorting modules into one single unit without long supply routes and transition points. Module 1 comprises a two-stage magnetic separator (STEINERT MRB); it is used for the recovery of clean fine iron and the separation of weakly magnetic impurities. Module 2 contains the high-frequency STEINERT EddyC® FINES eddy current separator with its unique eccentric and adjustable pole system for the separation of fine non-ferrous metals. The STEINERT FinesMaster reveals its greatest strength in the grain size range between 1 and 25 mm – a range in which other systems have usually already exceeded their limits.

We succeeded in optimising the material feed by abandoning the use of separate conveyor technology. An upstream, weak-field magnetic drum initially extracts fine, clean iron from the material flow. The residual fraction from the first magnetic stage passes via a discharge directly onto a downstream, fast-running magnetic separator equipped with strong neodymium permanent magnets. The high supply speed significantly loosens the material flow and all weakly magnetic impurities can be removed by the magnetic head pulley. The removal of weakly magnetic impurities like ferrous dust, clumps and fluff reduces the volume to the downstream eddy current separator by up to 30%. The third sorting stage then optimally prepares the material for non-ferrous separation using eddy-current where it is efficiently performed.
