Metal scrap recycling

Metal scrap  can be a high value materials. It is typically heavy and often voluminous though, which can prove challenging if transporting it onto scrap merchants or industrial manufacturers. Whether it’s ferrous or non-ferrous, there are specialised companies who will buy scrap metal at a good rate.

Great benefits can be achieved by firstly separating scrap metal into it’s component parts, then shredding into more easy to manage pieces. These shredded pieces can be sorted into bags via the shredding process making transportation or storage cheaper and easier to manage.

Metal swarf recycling

With components such as tin foil, long-swarf and punching waste, the shredded swarf can be extracted, collected, centrifuged, or even briquetted. Metal briquettes are also easy to transport and can free up plenty of storage space, lowering the risk of fire hazard. Scrap metal companies can favour metal briquettes as they’re less likely to get damaged or corrode than metal in scrap form, due to its neat organisation.

The progressive technology utilised in our industrial shredders makes it possible to shred all kinds of light metals including:

  • Aluminium
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Brass
