Ferrum, density 7,86;
melting point 1535 °C
Arising scrap metal, unsorted sheets, tubes, brackets, girders, smaller assemblies and machines
Heavy duty shears
Heavy scrap, wall thickness 6-15 mm, length max. 6 m, width max. 2 m, girders, tubes, machines, sheet pilings, light rails
Reinforcing steel scrap
Structural steel without adhesions
Scrap with adhesions, non-ferrous metals, e.g. electric motors, concrete, plastics, wood, washing machines, car bodies, circular saws with motor
Heavy scrap, which cannot be processed through scrap shears. Rails, large metal constructions, material, length over 6 m or with a wall thickness of more than 15 mm
Machines and heating casts cannot be sheared, therefore they are crushed in dumps
Rails have to have a high material quality. Older rails, which mostly originate from the pre-war period, often contain a too high amount of phosphor and thus are not suitable.
Scrap from foundries, like girders and rails with lengths of up to 40 cm, which can be processed with flame cutting tools.
