The metal recycling process is same as any other recycling process. The metals are first sorted on the basis of their properties. The metal recycling process consists of following main steps. Collection of metals, sorting out, processing, shredding, melting and purification, melting and solidifying of the metal, and Transportation of metal bars.
This is the first and foremost step of metal recycling. As name suggests it includes collection of all the materials made out of metal and are of no use anymore. Some people also have scrap yards to collect all the metal and they are paid for it as well. Different metals have different price and are sold easily.
The next step after collecting of scrap metal from metal yards is sorting of metals according to its properties. Metals are of so many different kinds and all of them have their own unique properties and functions. Some metals can be recycled but some cannot. This process separates all those which can be useful in recycling. The quality of the recycled product depends on the quality of the original metal, so it’s really important to sort good quality metals.
Processing and shredding
After collecting and sorting of the useful metal, the process of compacting or squeezing begins. This process crushes the metal into thousand tiny pieces using a machine. After the crushing the shredding process begins. The metal is further shredded into many more tiny pieces and then given different forms accordingly.
Melting and purification
The end result of fine metal is then melted in a large furnace. The furnace is heated up to a degree when metal starts to melt, this process takes minutes up to hours depending upon the quantity and quality of the metal being melted. Then it is purified using different methods to insure no foreign particle is present in the metal.
Solidifying and transportation
After the metal is being melted and purified completely, it’s given different forms and shapes as needed by solidifying it. This process completes the recycling process. This is a stage where a scrap useless metal is ready to use again after transforming it in desired forms after cooling it.
Overall the recycling process of scrap metal Perth WA is extremely useful and conserves resources. It reduces waste and pollution as well contributing to environment in a great deal. The production of greenhouse emissions destroy environment and nature. Recycling of scrap metal and steel curtails the amount of hazardous gas emissions polluting the environment.
