Metal Recovery

Metal Recovery

As the amount of raw, unprocessed, and unmined metal becomes more and more scarce–and the environmental concerns of extracting such metals become more pronounced and understood–the recycling of metals that are already within the consumer stream is more important than ever. At Scrap Metal Services, LLC, we understand this and are committed to the processing and recycling of scrap metal in order to reduce waste and improve sustainability.

As part of our metal recycling process, we put a large emphasis on metal recovery. Through various metal recovery techniques, we are able to maximize the volume of metal that is extracted and recycled, as well as profits for our customers. For comprehensive metal recycling services that you can trust, please call our metal recovery and scrap recycling company today.

What Is Metal Recovery?

Metal can, theoretically, be recycled time and time again. But before this is possible, it must be separated and identified, which is where the process of metal recovery comes in. When processing materials, such as vehicles, equipment, etc., there are various metal and non-metal materials involved, including steel, iron, aluminum, copper, lead, titanium, plastics, waste materials, and more. It is our job to recover metals from these items in order to responsibly and efficiently recycle them.

Different Techniques for Metal Recovery

There are a few different techniques that are employed for the recovery of various metals. One such technique involves the use of magnets to identify ferrous (iron-containing) materials – the slag is swept with magnets, which separate large pieces of metals. After the larger pieces are separated, the remaining materials are fed into a screening system that relies on magnetic separation, effectively removing all ferrous materials. In addition to this method, we also use crushing and screening, wet milling, and feeders to further separate materials and recover the maximum amount of metal as possible. There are both mechanical and chemical methods of metal separation and recovery that can be used.

We Process All Ferrous and Nonferrous Materials

Once we have effectively separated, identified, and recovered metals, we manage the recycling and processing of all ferrous and nonferrous materials. Our metal processing services are efficient, safe, and in compliance with all state and federal regulations. We even provide on-site demolition, deconstruction, and processing services for many of our clients throughout the nation. What’s more, we always pay top dollar for scrap, which means that the more metal we are able to recover, the more our partners get paid.
