Metal recycling services play a vital role in reducing the environmental impact of metal production and conserving natural resources. They collect, sort, process, and recycle various types of scrap metal, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Here’s a general overview of the metal recycling process:
Scrap metal is collected from various sources, such as construction sites, automotive workshops, manufacturing industries, and residential areas. Individuals, businesses, and municipal waste management systems can all contribute to metal recycling.
Scrap Metal Sorting
Collected scrap metal is sorted into different categories based on its composition, such as ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (aluminum, copper, brass, etc.) metals. This process can involve visual inspection, magnets (to separate ferrous metals), and advanced sorting technologies like eddy current separators.
Scrap Metal Processing
Once the metals are sorted, they are processed to prepare for recycling. This can include:
- Scrap Shredding: Scrap metal is shredded into smaller pieces to facilitate melting.
- Metal Baling: Metal is compressed into large blocks to make handling and transportation easier.
- Scrap Metal Shearing: Large pieces of scrap metal are cut into smaller sections using hydraulic shears.
- Scrap Metal Granulating: Metal is broken down into small particles using specialized machines.
Scrap Metal Melting
Processed scrap metal is melted in a furnace at high temperatures. The type of furnace and temperature vary depending on the metal being recycled. The molten metal is then purified and refined to remove impurities and contaminants.
The purified molten metal is poured into molds or casts, where it solidifies into ingots, bars, or other shapes. These forms are then transported to manufacturing industries to be used in the production of new metal products.
Recycled Metal Sale
Recycled metal is sold to manufacturers who use it as raw material for producing various products, such as automotive parts, construction materials, packaging, and electronics.
Finally, metal recycling services contribute to a circular economy and help reduce the overall carbon footprint of metal production. Recycling metals requires less energy than extracting them from ores, which results in lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduced environmental impact. Our knowledgeable staff is capable of handling small scrap metal jobs to industrial metal recycling projects.
