Sensor-Based Sorting Of Ferrous, Non-Ferrous and Stainless Steel

MetalMiner™ is our latest and most advanced induction-based true all-metal sensor that sorts ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel down to 1mm in size. Our patent pending MapLine™ algorithm maximizes recovery rates and provides a clean eject fraction.

As a stand-alone unit, the MetalMiner™ provides for the removal of metal contaminants (ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless) from a per-processed stream of electronic scrap. Located downstream of conventional magnets and eddy-current separators, this all-metal detector extracts any last traces of valuable metals.

MetalSort™ Upgrade

The MetalSort™ performs just like a MetalMiner™, and can be added to any MSS optical sorting unit for additional metal sorting capabilities. The MetalSort™ is an induction-based true all-metal sensor, and can be configured in a conveyor or slide setup. The sensor resolution is tailored to the specific processing application.
