The equipment company Steinert US, headquartered in Walton, Ky., has completed the installation of a plant at Commercial Metals Co.’s (CMC) facility in Seguin, Texas. Steinert provides separation equipment for the material recovery and recycling industry.

The installation of the system at the Seguin plant combines multimetering, stage-sizing, magnetic, eddy current, sensor and shape sorting technology to create what Steinert refers to as the all-Steinert total material recovery facility (MRF).

"The Seguin plant is a testament to Steinert's unique blend of technology and reliability as well as our ability to provide flexible equipment that can easily adapt to changing market conditions and evolving recovery specifications," says Jason Looman, president of Steinert. "We are proud to have been chosen as the provider of choice for this project and look forward to a long working relationship with CMC."

In addition, the Seguin facility was outfitted with diagnostic, control and communication technologies designed to allow total control of recovery and system efficiency by plant supervisors as well as support teams at Steinert and Metso.

"We are proud to be the supplier to CMC and the partner of Steinert on this state-of-the-art project," says John Guerry, Metso Recycling vice president. "Process knowledge is as important to our customers as separation technology, and we are happy that CMC awarded Metso and Steinert such an important project. The combination of Metso process capability and Steinert technology is hard to beat. When you add the support we both bring to the table, it is easy to see why the project was so successful."
