STEINERT_UniSort_Black_RGB.jpegWalton, KY – May 9, 2018 –STEINERT’s UniSort Black and UniSort Film NIR sorting systems help meet the highly demanding German Packaging Ordinance, the strict German Commercial Waste Ordinance and the Chinese waste purity rate. The company will be discussing these solutions at IFAT 2018 in Munich, May 14 to 18, at their stand in Hall B6 (Stand 451/550). The company will also present the STEINERT EddyC MOVE, a mobile non-ferrous metal separator, at the show, as well as their newly-designed website.

“In times when purity and rising recycling rates are the key to success, we are well positioned with both our process expertise and the necessary technology,” reports Peter Funke, CEO of STEINERT. “We offer operators of disposal facilities the full range of magnetic separation, non-ferrous metal separation and state-of-the-art near-infrared sorting systems.”  Plant operators can now sort black plastics with the UniSort Black system, and the UniSort Film efficiently separates 2D materials from the material flow – both are issues that can make a real difference to recycling rates.

During the VDMA demonstration days in the outdoor area of the fair, the company will demonstrate the STEINERT EddyC MOVE, which separates ferrous and non-ferrous metal in one step – a process step that helps to meet the requirements of the Commercial Waste Ordinance. The range of applications includes wood waste, demolition waste, refuse-derived fuel, and commercial and mixed construction waste

STEINERT focuses on two factors with respect to metal recovery: purity and process flexibility. For example, the STEINERT KSS multi-sensor machine enables sorting facilities to separate metals homogeneously. It consists of a platform that deploys various sensors such as 3D, color and induction recognition. The system can also be fitted with a fourth sensor (near-infrared, x-ray transmission or x-ray fluorescence sensor). The x-ray sorter ensures that heavy metals are separated from a lightweight metal fraction (e.g. aluminum).

Thanks to the newly structured online presence (www.steinert.de), customers can now find solutions to their sorting questions even faster and have a direct link to the industry specialists at STEINERT. The new stand design in Hall B6 (Stand 451/550) clearly reflects this by concentrating on essential solutions and clarity.
