Scrap Metal Edenvale
Firstly, scrap metal is not waste. All scrap metal has a value. This value is determined by normal economic factors such as supply and demand, quantity and geographic location. As a rule, the more compact the scrap, the more it is worth, partly for transport reasons but also because smelters want compact scrap in their furnaces. Scrap metals are always separated firstly into Ferrous (Iron or steel) and Non-Ferrous (Copper, Zinc, Aluminium, Brass etc). Because most iron based metals are magnetic, a magnet is used as the first sorting aid. Iron and steel are normally weighed in truck-loads on a weighbridge, while the far more valuable copper, aluminium and other grades are weighed on a small scale which provides a more accurate measure of the mass of the metal.
Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Scrap Metal Edenvale
Ferrous metals and alloys contain iron; non-ferrous materials do not. If the question happens to come up during a trivia night or your appearance on a game show, you’re pretty much covered. But it’s not so easy to tell when just looking at a random piece of metal. Luckily, there are several other factors that differentiate the two.
Ferrous metals include mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, and wrought iron. These metals are primarily used for their tensile strength and durability, especially mild steel which helps hold up the tallest skyscrapers and the longest bridges in the world. You can also find ferrous metals in housing construction, industrial containers, large-scale piping, automobiles, rails for railroad and transportation, most of tools and hardware you use around the house, and the knives you cook with at home.
Non-ferrous metals include aluminium, brass, copper, nickel, tin, lead, and zinc, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. While non-ferrous metals can provide strength, they are primarily used where their differences from ferrous metals can provide an advantage.
Benefits Of Recycling | Scrap Metal Edenvale
By definition, mining metal ores and refining them into usable metals is unsustainable, the amount of metals present on earth is fixed when considering (at least when considering any useful geological time scale). However, metals are easily recycled and reused, providing renewed opportunities for their use without having to mine and refine more of it. Thus, issues associated with mining like can be avoided, like acid mine drainage. By recycling scrap metal, we reduce the need to manage extensive and potential dangerous piles of mine tailings.
