In a global market where environmentally sustainable, yet profitable pracঞces are paramount to the success of any resource recovery operaঞons, STEINERT's magneঞc and sensor sorঞng soluঞons improve profitability by raising yield, reduce operaঞng costs, improve product purity and even limit environmental impact from operaঞons. MAGNETIC SEPARATION FOR MINING STEINERT manufacture a range of tramp removal magnets in a variety of sizes to suit various applicaঞons. Coil burn-outs are virtually impossible with our anodised aluminium wire as there is no turn to turn insulaঞng material when this is used as the winding medium. Tradiঞonally a transformer-recঞfier converts AC to DC current to power the magnets. Via a dedicated R&D team, STEINERT together with ABB, have developed a new way of controlling these magnets, allowing for a faster more flexible process of the 'powering up' (and down) of electromagnets. The complicated 'dump' process of permanent retenঞon magnets is now a thing of the past. Now, the task can be completed automaঞcally with solid-state switching and so[ware. It cannot be tampered with, which makes it infinitely safer. STEINERT' magnet Wet Drum Separators have been beneficiaঞng magneঞte iron ore and heavy media successfully for decades. In iron ore processing, the WDS separates from waste rock at P80s commonly down to 28μm. With heavy media recovery – magneঞte or ferrosilicon – we achieve almost at 100 per cent efficiency. ORE SORTING AND MINERAL PROCESSING Addiঞonally, STEINERT's sensor sorঞng technology offers the possibility to increase the longevity of the lower-grade resources found in many operaঞons and realise the potenঞal for profitable development of marginal resources. Ore sensor sorঞng technology has the potenঞal to produce beer quality upgrade of mineral product. In all, this adds a new dimension to processing in the minerals industry – unlocking reserves that were previously not viable to process and increasing return on investment (ROI). includes self-cleaning Suspension magnets works with a suitable 3 Phase power source
