Most of the metals only have to be melted down, and other products are reformed, making the life cycle of metal potentially endless. Recycling makes an enormous saving on landfill space requirements, thus helping conserve the world’s resources.
Our cutting edge metal recycling technology has been designed especially for residential, commercial, and industrial units. We are your one-stop destination for all your scrap recycling needs.
The metal recycling process involves various stages collection, sorting, processing, melting, purifying, solidifying, and transportation.
Metal is being used in everything these days. It is utilized in a big way while making cars, airplanes, trains, infrastructure, and buildings. Recycling of scrap metal is becoming more and more important to save the environment.
Collection And Sorting
First step is to collect the metal scrap and sort it into metal types. You can connect with us to get rid of the metal scrap in your surroundings. The metal is sorted afterward into recyclable and non-recyclable categories. High-quality metals are used only in the recycling process for the best outcome. Low-quality metals used for recycling will affect the quality of the end product.
We have automated systems for sorting purposes. With the help of magnets and other sensors, metals are separated from each other and grouped into non-ferrous and ferrous metal scraps.
Crushing And Shredding
This procedure is known as processing, where metals are crushed and shredded. Metals are first crushed in compactors at processing plants so that they are handled easily on conveyor belts.
After crushing it, metals are shredded into smaller pieces using the massive shredders, so they are melted effortlessly.
The next step is to melt the shredded scrap metal pieces using large furnaces. Each type of metal has its melting point, so a different furnace is put into use to heat the metals at the appropriate temperature. The process to melt the metal can either take minutes or hours. It depends upon the type and volume of metal. This process requires a lot of energy, but the energy used is considerably less than the energy consumed to create fresh, new metal from raw materials.
Jet stirrers are equipped into the furnaces to make sure of even composition and temperature by encouraging the circulation of metal within the furnaces. This process assures that the end product is of the highest quality.
Melted metals are purified to ensure no impurities. This process ensures that the new metal is of top-notch quality and ready to be used, as an impurity can vastly reduce the properties of metals.
For purification of metals widely used method is Electrolysis. On introducing the direct current, the electrochemical reaction happens, and all the impurities are separated to get the pure metal.
After purification, the metal is cooled down in a cooling chamber where they take the physical form with the assistance of density increasing chemical elements.
The cooled metal gets shaped into tubes, billets, bars, or sheets of various thicknesses. The end products are now ready to be transported and then make their way into the market. Factories and construction sites are the most common beneficiaries of these end products.
