A Guide to Identify Metals





If you are new to this world of scrap metal recycling, you are surely prone to get confused between steel, iron, tin and aluminium. This unfamiliarity and inability to identify these metals can be quite overwhelming. But there is nothing for you to worry about. This guide will assist you in identifying the various kinds of metals out there.

As a matter of fact, there are various tests you can perform in order to classify various kinds of metals. These tests include the following:

1.Magnet Test


This is by far the simplest way to classify and identify the metal. Getting an ordinary magnet is all you need and in case the metal contains iron, it would get attracted to magnet. These are ferrous metals. Scrap iron will pass this test. However, scrap brass or aluminium will not be responding to magnet as they are non-ferrous in nature.

2.Identification by Means of Colour


Colour of the metal can help you in identifying the chemical makeup of the metal. In case the metal is red in colour, it could be copper or even red brass. Similarly, golden coloured metal could be brass.

3.Identification by Means of Weight


You can also classify metals on the basis of their weight. For example, a lightweight metal could me aluminium and likewise, lead and iron metals would be heavy in weight.

4.Hardness Test 


If the metals are soft, they could be copper; however, metals like steel and iron are quite hard and are break resistant. The metal which is quite easy to bend is aluminium.

5.Professional Help 


If you are still unable to classify the metal, it would be best to seek help from professionals. They can assist you in classifying the metals through their scientific tests.

Myths about Metal Recycling in Construction


At the beginning of every construction, demolition or renovation project, there always comes a time when you have to hire an industrial scrap metal recycling service. But some project managers allow old ideas about this industry to sway their decisions. They hold on to this for long until you miss out the benefits of it. So, here are 3 myths about metal recycling.

 1. Scrap Contractors cannot be Trusted

Scrap industry has got a bad reputation because of horror stories of scrap yards paying very little for their customer’s metals or offering a very bad service that makes the work frustrating.  But then, some contractors are working very hard to turn around these bad reputations in order to create a more respected and vibrant industry of professionals who are much dedicated to their customers.

2. Scrap Management Slows Down Work Site Productivity

A professional scrap metal contractor will do whatever it takes to stay away from the client’s way. Thus he will not slow down any work.  Scheduling and discussing with the contractor allows them to determine the best way to collect, sort and transport scraps before even stepping foot on the site.

3. Scrap Metal Management isn’t Worth the Cost

No one wants to burn a hole in their pocket on a demolition or construction project. Anything that can bring additional cost can be diminished quickly. It is one of the best reasons to hire a scrap metal contractor to keep concerns about project cost at bay.

The way of demolition or construction business can be improved by industrial metal recycling services. That is why working with a trustworthy contractor can increase productivity and result in good profits.

Challenges in Metal Recycling



In principle, metals are actually infinitely recyclable. Metal recycling involves the recovery and processing of scrap metal so that it can be introduced again as a raw material. There are some challenges in metal recycling. This is because of the limits imposed upon it like thermodynamics of separation, recycling technologies, product designing and social behaviour. Here are some of the main challenges in metal recycling.

Low Recycling Rates of Specialty Metals


There are various reasons that account for the low recycling rates of specialty metals. These metals are mainly used in small amounts in high tech designs. Because of their specialized usage along with the small quantity, they are very difficult to recycle and it is economically unjustified.

Activities Required for the Greatest Potential to Improve Metal Recycling


The main activity behind the greatest potential to recycle metals is the collection.  There is a large inconsistency between the advanced technology used in the manufacturing process and that used in the recycling process. Also, there is no feedback between the product designers and recycling material/industry scientists.

High efficiency is needed in collecting metal which avoids frustration later in the process of the life cycle of the material. But this again requires incentives and initiatives from companies and governments to make it worthwhile and also profound changes in social attitudes.

Problems for the Technology Industry 


Material prices rise without the developments in closed loop material system. Even reserves are expanded along with mining capabilities being improved and this will forever be governed by the law of diminishing returns. Eventually, the prices of these materials will increase which will result in an increase in production cost.  In other words, costs will rise in other directions.

 The most advantageous actions that can actually change improve the rates of recycling are an enhanced deployment of modern recycling technology, improved design for recycling, and increased collection rates of discarded products.

Metal Recycling Equipment


Metal recycling dates back to a period as early as World War II as during this time, in order to aid the wars, metal was being collected and reprocessed. Though the modern equipment used for recycling can distinguish between numerous sorts of metals, but more intricate technological innovation is required to isolate non-ferrous metals. Isolating non-ferrous from ferrous metals is one of the fundamental metal sorting processes. For the most part, ferrous metals contain iron, and can get pulled by magnets. This enables pulling of iron and steel from a waste stream more effectively. Cranes equipped with an electromagnet can easily move large chunks of scrap. You might have seen such kind of machinery at the auto rescue yards. 

In light of the value of lead, copper and aluminum, if adequate scrap can be gathered, it can turn out to be financially beneficial to recoup valuable metals from electronic leftover. This procedure requires all the more mechanically advanced equipment of metal recycling. Typically, in larger facilities, x-beam and infra-red filtering sensors are utilized in order to distinguish between metals. 

There are three classes of metal detecting procedures 

1.Pyro-Metallurgy

Pyro-metallurgical processes warm mixed metals, and isolates the elements while they are in the liquid state. 

2.Hydro-Metallurgy

Hydro-metallurgy alludes to the use of different synthetic substances to blended waste, more often than not in a water based solution. The different controlled responses with the metals will expel them separately from the slurry. 

3.Bio-Technology

Bio-technology perceives the way that specific microorganisms search out and feed on specific metals, which would then be able to be collected.

Why Iron Recycling?


One of the most important thing which helps the society in meeting the aim of cost reduction, lessened landfill usage and productive administration of constrained assets is recycling. It is highly critical in the current time and age.People are aware of recycling paper and plastic yet sadly a great many people don't have a clue about recycling metals. Reusing and recycling ferrous metals, such as, scrap steel and iron, can move about 75 percent of the vitality that is expected in order to make products from rough unfinished materials.

Why Recycle? 

Ferrous metals contain iron, such as cast iron, wrought iron, stainless steel and normal steel. Standard sources are inclusive of old cars, steel bars, household appliances, railroad tracks, tins of food, ships, bottle tops, pressurized canned items and paint cans.
Recycling and reusing ferrous metals has various benefits that are related to money and environment. Recycling diverts people from landfills, diminishing the requirement to extract and create rough materials and add to the colossal savings emissions of greenhouse gas. Reusing steel, uses less vitality than creating steel from unfinished materials.

Reusing Options 

There are many companies that deal in scrap metal and offer a mix of services like drop-off, pick up and on location collection bin especially for ferrous scrap metal.

What Happens When It's Recycled? 

Many recycling workplaces recognize both non-ferrous and ferrous scrap material. This is then put into huge shredders or smashers which crush the piece into tinier pieces. Eventually with the help of magnetic separators, ferrous scrap is isolated from non-ferrous. Scraps are then melted so that they can be reused for manufacturing new steel and iron.

Why is Metal Recycling Important in Today’s Economy?


In the current age and time, recycling is an important factor for companies. It greatly helps in reducing the cost, effectively managing the limited resources and improving the landfill utilization. As a matter of fact, not only you can recycle the plastic and paper but also metals which unfortunately not many people are aware.

The Advantages of Metal Recycling are  as Under: 


1.Preserving of Resources 

Scrap metal is an unceasing resource which can be used over and over again through recycling. Recycling scrap metal will help in restoring the resources.

2.Reduction in the Emissions 

The metal recycling industry is far more efficient as compared to the conventional mining process. Mining has a lot of downsides and surely it comes with a lot of environmental hazards as well. Recycling scrap, on the other hand, doesn’t call for any pollution or any scars on the environment.

3.Adjustments in Price

Recycled metal leads to saving more money. If recycled metal is put to use rather than throwing away the scrap part, it will lead to lesser cost in order to produce more metal. And eventually the metal goods, for example, canned foods, will also cost less.

4.Energy Conservation

Recycling leads to a reduction of demand of the natural resources as well. And on top of it, the energy that is required to process the recycled material is quite less as compared to the processing of virgin ore. Metal recycling is surely a novel step towards the betterment of the environment. More and more people should gain a perspective over the same.
