Brass in Automotive Industry

 Brass is one of the most versatile alloys created by a composition of copper and zinc.

It is debated that Brass is known to have been found since the ancient times. Its true value as an alloy was not understood until the post-medieval period.  

A muted yellow color somewhat similar to gold and the most noticeable alloy has great importance used in electric components, engineering, used in different accessories like watches, design materials, musical instruments, decorate buildings, particularly interiors and sanitary ware, plumbing installations, fittings and valves etc. 

Due to its strength and heat-resistance, brass auto parts are widely utilized for different automobile vehicles as well like cars, truck, bikes etc.

As development in automotive industry, manufacturers are designing the components made of brass with industrial innovations and more advance technologies that are fully competitive and lower in material costs compare to aluminium counter parts. As base metals for radiators, copper and brass require fewer manufacturing steps has longer life with high quality features.

The greatest advantage of using brass in multiple applications is that it is a sustainable metal. It is a known fact that brass product supplier and manufacturers throughout the world depend on recycled brass scrap for their resources.  The metal from recycled radiators will be significantly easier to re-melt. In fact, this alloy retains its original structure even after brazing. 

There are many other usages of brass and brass alloys. The need for brass is increasing and to meet the needs it is necessary that brass should be available in greater amount.  Sources of brass scrap are limited in Dubai. The main scrap buyers in Dubai is Lucky Recycling; a division of Lucky Group. 

Lucky Group is an environmentally conscious entity to make the availability of brass scrap easier to manufacturers in the most ecologically beneficial way possible.

RECYCLING IS A MUST FOR EVERY MODERN CITY

The Middle East has grown both economically and demographically in recent years having very modern cities like Dubai. As our cities grow and move towards a brighter future, so does the population within it. Having a moderately populated country helps in improving the national income of the country as a whole.

But along with such advancement comes the question of waste disposal. Waste disposal here is not an issue; the issue here is about recycling. How many of us in Dubai actually make an effort to recycle? The effort lies in not dumping all the waste together but in segregating it. It is not a difficult task to follow and one can accomplish such a task by simply having different bins for different items right in our homes. Once we begin to follow such a regime, it becomes a part of our daily lives and works for the betterment of our own future.

The same trash that we segregate at home follows their individual paths into recycling facilities and then they take up the tedious job of processing and providing scrap back again into raw materials for manufacturers. Scrap buyers in Dubai like Lucky Recycling, a division of the Lucky Group have done a great job in taking care and helping in the problem of disposal of metals in Dubai. The Lucky Group’s experience and association with multiple countries in the Middle East helps the environment in getting rid of all the scrap metal while reducing the need for mining which damages our beautiful planet.

Landfills: Recovering Value in Scrap Metals

 Billion tons of waste is generated each year (https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/handle/10986/30317). Out of this waste, a major part includes metals. Majority of these wastes are incinerated or dumped into landfills which could have become valuable resources for the recycling industries.

Extensive programs are in progress in many countries that are exploring several ways of recovering metals from the existing landfills. It is a cost-effective proposition that is encouraging all the leading countries to consider doing so. Besides cost-effectiveness, the extraction of scrap metals from landfills is a stride towards cleaner environment. 

Why metal extraction from landfills is needed?

Aluminium alloy manufacturers in Dubai are suggested to utilize the metals from the landfills, which would prove to be cost effective and environment-friendly. This is testament to the fact that benefits from extracting the metal are not solely profit-oriented. However, recovering metal from these landfills is a cumbersome job and takes some time and effort. Many research programs are making commendable findings to discover a sustainable method to segregate these metals from the trash. 

Companies like the Lucky Group undertake copper recycling in Dubai, with an environment-friendly approach. The metals extracted are reintegrated into a usable component, and then sold to the firms for producing new products. Landfill extraction also decreases the problem of lack of availability of landfill space. Not every place could be used for landfill and space which is once used could be excavated and then reused, giving significant benefits to the environment.

A sundry of Dubai scrap yards is looking to increase their profits by extracting metals from these landfills. Besides, these scrap yard owners along with the landfill regulatory bodies are also finding ways to have a sustainable way of conducting their business. Extraction of metals from such landfills could address the problem and be a splendid solution for the environment and the economy.

How can we co-relate Metal abundance, Recycling and Price?

 The abundance of metals in the earth’s crust and the human’s constant exploitation of the planet to dig out the metals for his uses have made recycling an unspoken post process. The recycling and reuse industry has been playing a major part in the economy of a nation. Copper recycling in Dubai is one such example which provides employment to many people. The abundance of metallic waste makes it easier and cheaper to recycle instead of mining its ore and refining it. 

Extraction of raw metals vs recycling metals

The extraction of metals from the soil would be followed by refining through several steps until a usable alloy or desired purity of the metal is achieved. The process involves the emission of many hazardous gases into the environment and also the loss of certain biodiversity of the place. It is reported that recycling a metal will cost around 50 US dollars to 150 US dollars per ton of the metal, which is still better than the extraction of metal. (https://www.epa.gov/recycle)

Recycling of metals saves you a lot of costs and is environment friendly. Be it copper, aluminium, or any other metal, the recycling would help to get already refined state of the metal which could be tweaked a bit to meet your requirement. It is reported that recycling aluminium would save around 90 percent of the energy, which makes it crucial to recycle this metal. The recycling of metal also saves the environment from the hazardous gases emitted during its refining and extraction. (https://www.aluminum.org/advocacy/top-issues/aluminum-recycling#:~:text=Producing%20recycled%2C%20or%20secondary%2C%20aluminum,new%2C%20or%20primary%2C%20aluminum.) Aluminium alloy manufactures in Dubai should consider recycling metals to have better profit margins than extracting the metal from its ore. Metal scrapping or recycling in major cities, like Copper scrap in Dubai will give room to a lot of employment opportunities. It would also drop the rate of import of metals and transportation charges which would incur in transporting the metals. Many scrap buyers in Dubai also get benefitted when recycling of the metal is considered.

The advancement in recycling technology has made room for efficient metal recycling. However, recycling and the plethora of benefits it provides supersedes the need for additional mining. It is also a step towards preserving the reserves and ensuring a constant supply of the already depleting resources.

Aluminium is a silvery-white metal that is abundantly present in earth’s crust. Its attributes and utilities make it one of the most useful materials known to man. Aluminium is tremendously versatile which has broad range of properties, chemical & mechanical compositions. An Aluminium alloy is an alloy in which Aluminium is the predominant metal. The alloying elements used most frequently by aluminium alloy manufacturers are magnesium, copper, silicon, zinc and manganese.

Aluminium and its alloys are used quite extensively in the production of engineering structures, transportation facilities and packaging. The various properties of aluminium that make it a superior metal are as follows:

Durability: Although these alloys tend to lose a bit of strength at tremendously high temperatures, their strength increases at sub-zero temperatures. This important property makes aluminium an extremely useful low-temperature alloy.

Corrosion resistant: Aluminium alloys also have a strong resistance to corrosion. This Property of aluminium is a result of its reactions to the atmosphere. This protective oxide skin that is created due to the atmosphere, shields it from weathering conditions, chemicals and acids.

Good electrical conductor: It is also an extremely good electrical conductor and is used more than copper even though the latter is a better conductor. This is because of its low density and its high cost efficiency. (https://www.azom.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=1446)

Malleable: Like gold, aluminium is an extremely malleable metal and can be cast into many forms. Aluminium can easily be rolled, forged, hammered and stamped into a variety of shapes. Aluminium can also have a wide variety of surface finishes and does not produce toxic fumes when burned at high temperatures. . (https://socratic.org/questions/why-are-metals-malleable)

Light weight: Aluminium is very light weight and has a low density. This makes it an excellent choice of material in the manufacturing of airplanes. It also makes aluminium easier and cheaper to ship and transport. . (http://transport.world-aluminium.org/modes/aircraft/)

Aluminium is 100% recyclable and recycled aluminium is identical to the virgin product. This makes it a much more cost-effective source material for production runs. (https://www.azom.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=1446). Because of its various utilities and abundant availability, recycling companies in UAE and scrap metals yard in Dubai have come to realize the immense value of this precious metal.
