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.

Why Recycling Construction Waste is Important?


Reusing and recycling of construction materials are gaining a lot of impetus since the concern of environment is getting a lot of attention the world over. The most widely recognized strategy for discarding construction waste material in the past has been moving it to landfills. But now things have changed and now these construction organizations are presently discovering that reusing this waste is really a great alternative. These construction sites have large amounts of metal waste which can be recycled. The various reasons why  recycling construction waste is important are:

Conserves Energy 

 Recycling construction waste saves massive energy by diminishing the utilization of primary resources. If people learn to manage to reuse all concrete, they would be able to spare what might as well be corresponding to 1 billion gallons of fuel or the evacuation of over 1 million automobiles from the street. (please mention source here for such facts otherwise do not mention)

Reduction in Landfill Waste 

Landfills are topping off which implies that it is a great opportunity to consider alternative approaches over dumping these construction waste materials into the landfill. Reusing these waste materials will enable people to use it for some other projects. The metals in these materials would then be able to be utilized for a similar reason again or can be transformed into something new.

Cost Savings 

Reusing materials diminishes the cost of transfer and transportation. Furthermore, it regularly costs less to discard materials that can be reused.

Recycling Electronics

Electronic devices such as mobiles phones, tablets, PCs are being increasingly discarded used on a daily basis. These electronics contain considerable amounts of metal in them. When these electronics are no longer in use, they can be recycled in order to reduce the landfills and toxic wastes. There are a number of valuable metals found in these electronics.

 The electronic waste is a rich source of precious metals such as gold that can be extracted from computers. Other precious metals that can be recovered also include silver that can be extracted from the electronics. Recovering these precious metals is not an easy task. Some of the modern recycling facilities can recover up to 95 percent of gold whereas facilities in developing countries can recover only up to 50 percent of the metal.

The metallic and non-metallic content from the electronics can be removed using magnets. Apart from gold and silver, metals like aluminum, copper, and brass are also present in the devices. The current recycling rates for electronics are quite low. Not all devices reach the recycling center. An even the ones that do, not all of its metallic content is recovered. The recycling rates can be increased by encouraging the public to recycle their used electronics and having recycling policies in companies.

Scrap Metal Shavings

Metal shavings are a common waste in any metal processing industry. Every day, several metal shavings, chips and fillings are formed during the metal manufacturing processes. A large generation of scrap is created by industrial metal drilling and grinding. These by-products can be sold at a reasonable price to an industrial metal recycling centre.

Recycling Scrap Metal Shavings

Collecting scrap metal shavings can be quite a task but there are industrial inventions to make it easier. Some commercial machine plants use metal chip vacuums that are capable of handling the sharp edges of the debris.

Recycling of metal shavings is not easy. Longer shavings tend to get entangled during the machining process. Using crushers, the entangled shaving nests are crushed into metal chips which can be transported easily. Metal shavings are also easier to melt down and can be pressed into small pellets. Using the metal briquetting system, the metal can be separated from any coolants or lubricants placed mixed with the metal.

Recycling metal shavings rather than discarding it into the landfills has environmental and financial benefits. It reduces the contamination with tramp oil and also reduces the amount of ore mining required to produce new metal. The scrap value is also a net gain apart from the costs handled for its handling and transportation.

Top 3 Metals to Sell to Scrapyards

Tens of Millions of tons of metals reach the scrap metal industry every year to be recycled. Recycling metals are important as it not only reduces the wastage that ends up in a landfill but also saves the environment. Whether you are looking for selling the scrap metal or just want to get rid of the metal parts, here are top 3 metals to sell to the metal recycling companies.

Aluminum

Aluminum is the most common metal we use in our day to day lives. It is found in beverage cans, household appliances, and automobile parts and also in aluminum wires that are found in a variety of products. A clean aluminum wire pays more than an insulated one.

Steel

Steel is extensively used in a variety of applications and is molded and welded into various parts. There are four primary types of steel- carbon, stainless, alloy and tool. Carbon and iron is found in most of the steel and it has a number of grades. Stainless steel is another common type of steel that can be sent for recycling.

Copper

Copper is a good conductor of electricity and is largely used in electrical wiring. Again, the insulated wires yield less cash compared to the clean ones. Copper tubes are a common component of plumbing. Scrapyards offer more price for copper compared to many other metals as recycling it requires much less energy than producing copper from its ore.


Metal recycling helps in preserving the natural resources. Contact Lucky group to recycle all the metal parts that you want to discard and sell.

Metal Recycling Process

Recycling is protecting the environment and the need for recycling has been stressed more than ever. Metal recycling involves certain steps for them to become viable raw materials again.

Collection

The first step is the collection of scrap metals. Millions of tons of scrap metal reach the industry. These can include tin cans, old appliances, and metallic industrial wastes. All the scrap is collected and sent for sorting in order to segregate the metal types.

Sorting

All the items that have been collected need to be sorted based on their chemical compositions, grades, and quality. While sorting, an important factor to be considered is separating recyclable items ones that are highly contaminated. For the recycled metal to be free of impurities, its base material also needs to be in good condition.

Processing

The next step is to place the scrap metal in a machine where it is compressed to be able to maximize space and reduce melting loss. This results in composite blocks (or bales) of metal.

Shredding

After processing, some of the metal is shredded cut into thin pieces. Steel items are cut into small blocks. Small sizes of blocks are easier for melting.

Melting

The raw materials are then placed on a furnace for melting. The molten liquid is purified using various methods. It is then cooled and sent to the mills to be converted into reusable products.

Uncommon Metals with Recycle Value

We all know the everyday metals can be recycled like aluminium, copper and stainless steel. But, there are some infrequent metals that also have a recycle value. Read on to find out about these:-

1. Metal Carbide:

 A compound made of carbon and metals like cobalt, tungsten or titanium, metal carbides are extremely heavy and highly resistant to heat. Both carbide and its constituent metals can be recycled as scrap metal. Carbide can be found in drill bits, cobalt can be found in batteries, titanium is present in aircraft parts and tungsten is present in razor blades and ballpoint pens.

2. Nickel:

 A shiny, strong, silver-white metal used in combination with metals like iron, nickel is resistant to corrosion. It is also very strong, malleable and ductile making it ideal to use in alloys. Found in rechargeable batteries, microphone capsules, electric guitar strings and some old coins, this metal has scrap value in all of its different forms and grades.

3. Lead:

This metal is recycled more than it is mined because when dumped in landfills, lead seeps into the groundwater that is used for drinking and can cause lead poisoning which has adverse health effects. Lead is a soft but heavy metal which is corrosion resistant and flexible. It can be found in scientific and medical equipment, construction materials, car batteries and wheel weights.

There are several recycling companies in Dubai like the Lucky Group, which purchase scrap metal.

FAQs About Metal Recycling

We need not be experts, but there are a few things we should all be aware of when it comes to metal recycling. Read on to find the answers to some of your most common queries:-

1. What is the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal?

Simply put, non-ferrous scrap metal is non-magnetic, whereas ferrous scrap metal is magnetic. The easiest method to differentiate and segregate the two is by using a magnet. Non- ferrous metals are not attracted to magnets and are less prone to corrosion and rust. They are also easier to recycle and have more scrap value when compared to ferrous metals.Copper, nickel, aluminium, brass, and lead, are some examples of non-ferrous metals.

2. Does my old car have scrap value?


Yes, cars have many parts made of ferrous and non-ferrous metals like copper and aluminium. Parts of your old car like radiator, battery, rims and bumpers can fetch you some money.

3. What is e-scrap?


E-scrap refers to electronic scrap recyclable materials in electronic devices like CPU units and internal circuit boards of computers. But not all electronic items have metal inside them and not all of them have recycle value. Therefore, make sure you do your research and know whether to take your old electronic devices to the electronics store or a metal scrap yard to be recycled.

4. Can homeowners recycle scrap metal?

Yes, homeowners are encouraged to recycle scrap metal found in their homes, but many people are unaware of this. This can even be a great way to earn some money from unwanted items at home including old electronic goods and worn out utensils.

Recycling at Home Simplified

Recycling metal at home can be a challenging task if you are not familiar with the different metals found in your household objects. Read on to find out which common metal items in your home have value for recycling.


Copper is commonly used to make wires,  coins, radiators and pipes. It is darkOrange in colour, and bright if it is new, unused or protected from the open weather conditions but may appear slightly dull  if it is worn out.

Aluminium, sometimes painted in White or Grey , is what your beverage cans and cooking articles  like baking foil and pie tins are made of. Aluminium is easy to bend and is used in making everyday items like mirrors, flat screen TVs and coffee machines.

Brass has a golden yellow sheen. It is used to make keys, door handles, locks, fixtures for lights and bathrooms.

Steel is the most commonly used metal. It is easy to spot because it gets attracted to magnets and is also prone to rust. Construction rods and  are made of steel, whereas kitchen utensils and cutleries are made of stainless steel, which is a mixture of steel with other metals like nickel, chrome, carbon, , silicon, etc.

Of the above-mentioned metals; copper, brass and aluminium have high value in a scrap yard and stainless steel is valued more than pure steel based on its chemical compistions. There are several metal companies in UAE that will pay you for  metal recyclables.

Benefits of Recycling Aluminium

Aluminium is a metal found in objects that we use on a daily basis. Mirrors, soda cans, tins, food wrappers, disposable cookware, flat screen TVs and other electronic equipment all have Aluminium in them. Recycling this metal has several benefits, both for the economy and the environment.


Beverage cans made of aluminium are 100% recyclable and by recycling these, you could contribute to reducing the energy needed to produce new cans by a great deal. The time taken for a single aluminium canister to be recycled and returned back to the shelf is just 60 days, but producing one from scratch demands much more energy and time. (http://www.cancentral.com/can-stats/history-of-the-can/renewable-can-0)

In a patriotic move during the second world war, the American population saved aluminium foil and even the silver wrappers of chewing gum, to help with war efforts. Today, we can do the same to conserve energy and protect our environment.



Aluminium can be recycled and used almost forever. The process of recycling aluminium in Dubai involves re-melting the metal, which is far less costly and energy intensive compared to producing aluminium from its primary raw minerals.

You can easily differentiate between aluminium cans and their steel counterparts by using a magnet. Aluminium, being non-magnetic, will not be attracted to the magnet, whereas steel will. Also, make sure you wipe and clean aluminium foil and tins which were used for storing food, before sending them for recycling. You could also buy 100% recycled aluminium foil and other products which are produced using 5% less energy than the traditional manufacturing processes.

Stainless Steel Recycling

Stainless steel is an alloy of Iron with a minimum of 10.5% Chromium. (what is the reference of this fact? as it is not true) The most common uses of stainless steel are in the architecture and construction of buildings (not true), kitchen accessories and cookware, automotive industry (not true), etc. Stainless Steel is easily recyclable and a lot of businesses used the recycled metal.(not true it is one of the difficult metals to recycle) In most cases, the stainless steel suffers some amount of degradation and still contains the high value of chromium, nickel and molybdenum which are all alloying elements. Stainless steel is actively recycled around the world on a large scale by recyclers who collect and process scrap for re-melting. There are different grades of stainless steel available.

17-4 Stainless Steel - This grade of stainless steel is most commonly used in food industry and in aerospace industry. This type should be free of any impurities and analyzed before recycling. This grade of stainless steel can yield quite a lot of money. (what is your source?) What about 18-8 Stainless Steel?

300 Series Stainless Steel - This is the most common form of stainless steel. A good way to check whether the stainless steel belongs to this series is by using a magnet as the 300 series stainless steel will not stick to magnets.



Recycling the scrap

High expertise and technology is needed in separating each alloy for re-melting. You can look for scrap dealers in Sharjah for recycling the metal. The scrap is shredded into smaller pieces using a recycling processor. It is then chemically analyzed. The scrap is then blended into chrome steels, nickel alloys and other types of stainless steels.

At the stainless steel mills, the scrap along with other raw materials such as chromium and molybdenum are melted. Once the impurities are removed, the molten metal is refined and chemically analyzed to make any adjustments for a specific type of stainless steel. It is then cast into slabs for producing plates, sheets, wires and other forms for use.

How Recycling Scrap Metal Helps Environment


Recycling metals has a number of benefits and one of them is helping the environment. Primary Metal is acquired through mining of metal ores. Most of the metal ores are in desolate landscapes and mining these metal ores will result in destruction of landscapes.

By recycling metals, there will be no extraction of non-renewable metal ores. Recycling metals uses less energy when compared to smelting ore to create new metals. For instance, the amount of energy to make one can from raw materials is the same as the amount of energy required to make 20 cans from recycled metal.(Source: http://greeningforward.org/environmental-issues/waste/recycle/recycling-facts/)

Due to recycling, there is a large reduction in the emission of Greenhouse gases. Lesser amounts of Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are produced. The greenhouse effect resulting in global warming is a big threat to our environment. Although global warming has not been halted, recycling metals has significantly reduced the emission of these harmful gases to the atmosphere, thus preserving our Earth for future generations.

Recycling metals also reduces chemical pollution. If a metal is recycled, it doesn’t have to be imported from other countries via boat or train. Recycling metals reduces the emissions and amount of fuel that could have been used for transportation. Landfill sites are not only an unpleasant sight but also one of the largest sources of pollution. Recycling metals will help reduce the landfill sites.

Hence we see that recycling metals can help in preserving our environment. Look for metal recycling companies in Dubai for recycling of metals.

Factors that affect Scrap Metal Prices

When it comes to determining the value of your scrap metal, there are a number of factors that affects its pricing.


• Demand and Supply

The demand and supply of scrap metals in various industries plays a major role in determining its economic value. If the supply of scrap metals surpasses its demand, the economic value decreases. Similarly, if the demand is greater than the supply, the prices increase significantly. The economic status of the country also plays a major role.

• Market Price of Metals

The market price of metals affects the value of the scrap. If the market price of a particular metal increases, its scrap metal prices will increase too. The right timing also matters. For example, when the weather is suitable, there is more demand for recyclable metals and hence you can expect a rise in price.

• Location

Location of the scrap yard is one of the most important factors. Customers prefer scrap yards that are close to their factories as this reduces the transportation costs. The price of scrap is higher in scrap yards located in an industrial area than in those located at far off places. You can look for scrap yards in Dubai that are located in industrial areas.

• Quality and Type of Scrap

Apart from the quantity, quality also plays a significant part in determining the scrap value. If your scrap is covered with insulation or corrosion, you’ll get a much lesser price as the dealer will have to clean up the metal to get the value for money. Clean, high quality scrap yields more money. The type of metal is another factor. Non-ferrous metals are considered more valuable than ferrous metals as the former more malleable and the latter is more vulnerable to rusting.

What Are The Metals That Can Be Recycled?

Most type of metals can be recycled  with no or little change in their basic properties. By recycling metals, we can protect the environment and reduce energy consumption. There are a number of metal recycling companies in Dubai. Here are the metals that are recycled the most.


Aluminum

Recycled aluminum can be used to make beverage cans and food containers. It is also used as mechanical equipment in sheet metal and cars.  Aluminum cans have a  fast turnover recycling rate. You  can drop one can into the recycling bin and its new metal will show up as a new can in the stores within 60 days. Aluminum foil is just as fast recyclable as aluminum cans but they are usually not accepted   everywhere until they are thoroughly cleaned.

Steel

Steel is being recycled for more than 150 years now (please give reference). Some steel mills use just the steel scrap to produce new steel. From iron to steel alloys such as the stainless steel, everything can be melted down to be recycled.

Copper

Copper wires and pipes are used for recycling. Its natural coloring property makes it a popular metal for decorative objects. It is also used to make brass and bronze alloys.

Other Scrap Metals

Other metals that can be recycled include titanium, zinc, nickel and brass . Recycled lead is used to make new products, including batteries and is also used as medical equipment in hospitals and doctor’s clinics.

How To Get The Best Price For Scrap Car

All the metals used in your car is valuable. Before you take your scrap car to the recycling centre, here are few points you need to note.


1. Remove the basic parts: Removing all the non-metal items from your car will help to ensure  to get the best possible price for it. When the dealer has to do all the cleaning themselves, they’re less likely to give you a good offer. You might also want to remove all the parts that can be sold separately for a profit. The battery and the radiator can be scrapped too. While removing the items, make sure you remove them with utmost care as any damage to these parts will further lower the price.

2. Know the value of your parts and objects: Getting to know an estimated value of your scrap before heading towards the recycling centre will give you a good idea of whether you are getting a fair deal or not.

3. Know the various metal parts:

a) Car batteries –  These are easy to remove and easy to scrap.

b) Lead wheel weights - On the inside of a tyre, you can find lead wheel weights which are a few inches long and made of lead with steel clips. Because of the presence of steel clips, you’ll get a price a bit less than that for regular clean lead.

c) Aluminum Wheel rims - Car rims are made of aluminum and you can take them off from the actual tyre before scrapping  to get the most value  for it.

d) Catalytic converters – Catalytic converters have the presence of platinum, rhodium or palladium inside and are one of the most valuable part in a car.

e) Starters and alternators: These contain  copper which makes them a profitable  material to scrap..

Look for scrap metal companies in Dubai to get the best price for your scrap car.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Metal Recycling

Advantages

There are a number of metal recycling companies in Dubai. Recycling metals has numerous environmental and economic benefits.

• The products made from recycled metals require less energy compared to the ones made using raw materials. This reduces carbon emissions and conserves energy. According to the National Institute of Health, recycling aluminum uses 95 percent less energy while recycling steel saves 60 percent.(https://www.livestrong.com/article/132349-benefits-recycling-metal/)

• Less amount of metals need to  extracted through natural resources if we recycle them. This will help in reducing the landfills. Landfills affects the environment and reducing it will lead to a cleaner atmosphere and lessen the health concerns associated with waste.

• Recycling metals requires human resources and thus adds jobs to the economy.

• Production of primary  metals from the ore is expensive compared to recycling.

• Recycling metals adds to the research and scientific advancements being made for recyclable and biodegradable materials.

• The metals made from the primary ore release greater amounts of greenhouse gas emissions which are a threat to the environment. Recycling metals will reduce this. Since it uses less energy thereforeless fossil fuels are burnt.

• Ores which are a non renewable resource can be conserved by recycling metals.


Disadvantages

• The process of collecting and sorting the materials for recycling can be expensive and time consuming.

• Many of the recycled metals are impure and may not meet up to the demands of certain production standards.

Process of Recycling Copper

Copper has been in use by civilization since time immemorial and it is being recycled from ages. This non ferrous metal is the best conductor of electricity, second only to silver. Known for its high ductility and malleability and its conductive properties, copper is one of the most sought after metals.


The process for recycling copper involves following steps:

Step 1: Collection

Collecting copper scrap is the first step.  Copper has been the primary component in electrical wiring. It is a good conductor of electricity  and is present in cooking devices, air conditioners, electrical cables, heaters, appliances and furnaces. In a large automobile, as much as 100 pounds of copper can be found in its various components. It is also largely found in electronic devices. When you consider that a computer contains a one and a half kilogram of copper, it is easy to imagine the fortune of materials inside the devices that are thrown away.

Step 2: Sorting and Stripping/Granulation

The next step is to reclaim copper from  the copper scrap. The main machines used for recycling copper are copper peeling machines, stripping machine and granulators. For a single wire, copper stripping machine can be used. For wires with multiple strands and complicated knots, the copper granulator is used.

Step 3: Shredding and Melting

When the copper scrap  is  processed by copper granulator, peelers or strippers, the pure copper is separated  and transported for further processing. In case of using the wire stripping machine, it is not very convenient to transport the entire copper wire to the melting device and hence it is shredded further. At the smelter, the bales are fed into a furnace and heated until they become molten copper. The molten copper can then be poured into casters and moulds.

Step 4: Cooling and Fabrication

Once the molten copper has cooled and hardened, they are rolled out into sheets which form the basis of new materials.
