If you are student and want to have basic knowledge of scrap metals and it’s recycling then you don’t need to be a metallurgist, only you need to know the common metals which are used for re-purposing scrap metals into new products. Recycling companies in UAE, in collaboration with Scrap metals yards in Dubai, offers a wide range of technical and identification methods to segregate different types of metals fast.  

But on the other hand scrap metals knowledge with little expertise may help you in getting additional pocket money and will also save your time if it has been properly segregated before delivering to Metal recycling companies in Dubai.

But the question is how it is possible?

Do you know in scrap who is your best friend?  A “magnet”. An important tool which helps you in distinguishing between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Now before learning how we can use the magnet for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, it is very important to understand the difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

What is a ferrous metal?

Steel and Iron both come under this category available in hangers, washing machines and other household items.

What is a non-ferrous metal?

Other than steel and iron most other metals are non-ferrous like very common metals such as aluminium and copper found in electrical wires and window frames.

How we can use the magnet to identify which metal is ferrous or non-ferrous?

  • If the magnet sticks, you have a ferrous metal.
  • If the magnet doesn’t stick, you have a nonferrous metal.

So, if you don’t have magnets buy a small one and attached with your keychain, so it may not be misplaced.

If you want to know the value of scrap metals collected in-house or at schools, Dubai scrap yards will decide how much they will pay you for whatever type of metal you bring.

Safety is our first priority, so if you handle scrap metals, handle with care by wearing protective gloves because most of the metals have sharp edges or other contamination which may affect your health and safety.
