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.
