In metal analysis, XRF analysis is a standard
method for determining the elemental compo-
sition. With Steinert Chutec, XRF is also used
as a technology for sorting metals. The chute
sorting system combines the signals from the
XRF unit with 3D information in order to
achieve a precise level of classification and
separation. For larger and heterogeneous
material, the option of sorting with the
Steinert KSS | XF belt-based machine has prov-
en its reliability in practice.
The sorting produces concentrates of different
types of metal, which display a quality suitable
for immediate use in reprocessing smelting
plants. Refinement at this level makes an
important contribution to returning metals to
the raw material cycle.
With Steinert, customers are able to procure
sorting solutions, including non-ferrous metal
separators and X-ray sorting equipment, from
one source. Business owners greatly appreci-
ate minimising coordination work to free up
more time for developing metal recycling
concepts. ‘My production staff have complete
confidence in Steinert. Plant is easy to operate
and all the technical components are easy
to understand and simple to use,’ is how
one opinion leader in the recycling industry
Steinert KSS XF purifies coarse sizes of non-ferrous metals.
Steinert Chutec transforms non-ferrous metals into pure copper, brass or zinc. Steinert X-ray transmission creates pure aluminium.
Steinert can look back on a 130-year histo-
ry. Founded in 1889 in Cologne, the fami-
ly-owned company is one of the world’s
leaders in sensor sorting and magnetic
separation. With 340 employees, Steinert
generates an annual turnover of around
EUR 100 million. In addition to 50 sales
partnerships and joint ventures around the
globe, the company also has subsidiaries
in Germany, Australia, Brazil and the US.
