Hand-pickers are generally responsible for separating copper meatballs and ferrous scrap metal.
With hundreds of objects passing over the sorting belt every second, it isn’t easy for hand-pickers to find and sort these problematic items.
The purity of the ferrous product, e.g. the basic requirement for use in steel mills, may therefore vary greatly, making the product harder to sell.
By deploying a combination of ballistic and magnetic effects, the new STEINERT SteelMaster is a good and efficient addition for reducing manual work.
Following the tried and tested electric magnetic drums – STEINERT MTE – for recovery and initial cleaning of the ferrous fraction, the use of downstream magnets results in greatly improved quality and much less manual sorting.
The STEINERT SteelMaster is specifically designed based on customer feedback and adapted to the tough conditions experienced in shredder plants.
For example, the mechanics of the belt section have been adapted to improve material flow and separation properties, simplify maintenance and reduce the copper content in the iron to < 0.2 per cent. The robust design, typical of STEINERT, stands for a long service life and good availability of the technology.
Common grain sizes are 20 – 400 millimetres with high sorting efficiency. Depending on the material composition the throughput is at 75t/h per meter machine width.
