Company History

With a history that spans over one-hundred years, the story of Deister Concentrator parallels the story of the mining industry from the early 1900’s to today.   

Emil Deister immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1906.  He perfected and then patented  a simple concept in shaking table separation. 

This concept changed history and brought good fortunes to a new generation of miners.  The revolutionary  process that Emil developed included pooling and body separating riffles running diagonally to the flow of the material. 

While the process that Emil developed has been perfected over the years; nonetheless, no other system separates minerals as efficiently and completely.
