The STEINERT Test and Development Centre in Pulheim near Cologne is one of four test centres worldwide. In addition to sites in Australia, Brazil and the USA, this test centre enables realistic testing at an industrial scale to reproduce the demands, feasibility and ROI of the planned investment and create investment security on the basis of data and facts.

Benefit from skilled engineers and a combination of cutting-edge magnets, non-ferrous metal separators and sensor sorting units in a recycling experience space.

  • 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

Our application specialists will provide competent and specific help 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.

The Test and Development Centre also offers STEINERT pivotal benefits as it provides the opportunity to test and further develop the most recent hardware and software. Adequate conference room capacities make it suitable as a training centre for internal and external purposes.

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.
