Aluminium Sow – Ingots

Birmingham’s Recycle USA, Inc. Providing Aluminium Sow – Ingots Recycling Services

We Love Metal & It Shows

Providing Birmingham Alabama Aluminum Recycling ServicesBirmingham’s Recycle USA, Inc. paying top prices for all types of scrap aluminium.  Aluminium, as with most metal products are never found to be 100% pure.

Aluminium is one of the most recyclable metals on the planet.  It is created by mining the mineral Bauxite.  The Aluminium is separated out and formed into ingots that can be sent all over the world to create a variety of products.  Creating Aluminium from scratch can be an expensive process though and it is always cheaper to just recycle it.

aluminum_recycledIn fact recycling your old can into a new one takes about 5% of the energy needed to make the can from scratch.   Because of this more than 50% of all the aluminium produced, is made by recycling old aluminium into new products.

aluminum_processingThis is where you come in.  That soda you’re drinking now, or that old siding you just replaced, is made of Aluminium and can be worth big bucks.   At Recycle USA, Inc. we pay you (handsomely) for your old Aluminium.

Then we take it, process it and get it melted back down into ingots so it can start it’ s life all over again.  At the end of the day you have some extra cash in your pocket and you’ve helped the environment by not wasting energy.  Everybody wins!

 

Aluminium Recycling Services

Aluminium Recycling

Most consumer metal products are alloyed to match an industry precision that defines hardness, texture and strength. The alloy varies from product to product. Although you’ll find hundreds of different alumiinum products, less than 50 common recycling terms exist. Purity and demand will determine the price given for each aluminium product. Aluminium recycling provides many environmental, economic and community benefits to individuals, communities, organizations, companies and industries.

Aluminium ASCR

ASCR (Aluminium Conductors Steel Reinforced) conductor is used for river crossings, overhead and ground wire installations or also used just as a ground wire.

Aluminium Breakage

Casting alloys containing more than 5% foreign material are divided into high or low recovery. This item is commonly found in aluminium engines and transmission parts but also used in other products.

Aluminium Bumpers

Common to be a 7000 series with zinc as the principal alloying element. You may find some truck bumpers to be a 5052 alloy with magnesium being the principal alloying element.

Aluminium Cans

As a new pre consumer product this is a 1100 alloy, once used it is known as UBC (used beverage can) or RBF-UBC.

Aluminium Cast

Cast aluminium can be produced using several different casting processes that include sand, permanent mold, die, lost foam, or squeeze. Common products will be found with engine parts, transmissions as well as other not so common products. Cast can be bought as clean as long as all foreign material has been removed, if not it could be bought as a breakage.

Aluminium Clips

A very common mix of 1100, 3003, 3004, 5005, 5052, 6061 and 6063. This mixture of alloys may also be found with aluminium MLC. This is can be familiarized as an aluminium product with a sheet like appearance, free of any foreign elements.

 
Aluminium Dirty Sheet

This category is for almost all alloys of sheet aluminium that contain a small amount of foreign element. Common material would be sheet aluminium that may have screws, nails or a small amount of plastic. This can include lawn chairs, rain gutter, siding and other sheet aluminium products. Aluminium EC Wire A common conductor found in different gauged wire that is shielded with a rubber or plastic outer layer. The aluminium used in most of this product is no less than 99.5% pure giving it a high value if it’s stripped of it’s outer shield. Aluminium Extrusion Aluminium extrusions will commonly be found in the alloys of 6061 and 6063. Using magnesium and silicon in various proportions to form magnesium silicide thus, creating a heat treatable aluminium alloy with durable strength. Common uses include ladders, window frames, and screen doors. Aluminium Foil This familiar household product is also recyclable and like a beverage can this is also 1100 alloy but because of the thinness not all of the aluminium is recovered in the smelting process, dramatically affecting the price of this material.

Aluminium Litho Plate

This is commonly used in printing shops and usually has better value over other aluminium. The alloy is either 1100 or 3003 but most likely 3003. Manganese is the major alloying element.

Aluminium MLC

As with clips this is a very common mix of 1100, 3003, 3004, 5005, 5052, 6061 and 6063. Unlike clips, MLC is usually the thick solids instead of the thin clean sheets. MLC is the initials for mixed low copper.

Aluminium Painted Sheet

Any sheet or clip aluminium that has been contaminated with paint will be bought in this category unless the paint is unusually thick or contains other foreign material, then the material will have to be downgraded.

Aluminium Radiators

You will find an aluminium radiator in most modern cars. These are purchased for recycling with or without the plastic ends, of course increasing the value by removing  the plastic.

Aluminium Rims

Usually a 6061 alloy and found on most modern cars.

Aluminium Thermo

Bond Thermo bond is usually bonded by two pieces of extrusion with a thermo adhesive, creating a better insulation around windows and doors. This type of material must be kept separated from other extrusions. Aluminium Turnings Turnings or shavings are usually found at machine shops and left after drilling holes into a block or sheet of aluminium. These turnings have less value than aluminium sheet because recovery is less in the smelting processes and also more likely to be contaminated with oil used for cooling the drilling tools.

Other aluminium items that we purchase include:

Cable TV coax, concentric wire, aluminium ingots, aluminium pistons and venetian blinds. A whole list of alloys include 1100, 1200, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2017, 2024, 2036, 2117, 3002, 3003, 3004, 3005, 3102, 5005, 5052, 5182, 5252, 5454, 5457, 5657, 5754, 6009, 6010, 6022, 6053, 6061, 6063, 6082, 6111, 6262, 6463, 7003, 7004, 7021, 7072, 7116, 7129, A380.0, 383.0, 319.0, 356.0, A356.0 and B390.0

Birmingham’s Recycle USA, Inc. Providing Cast Aluminum Recycling Services

 

Cast aluminum is a specific metal that has gone through one of the several processes known as casting. Essentially, it is created when methods such as die casting, mold casting, or sand casting are used to temper the aluminum for use in creating components for many different types of products. This form of aluminum is used for a number of items around the house, as well as machinery and other products that are necessary to the manufacturing of a wide range of goods and services.

One of the more common applications of cast aluminum is in the creation of cookware. Just as cast iron is used for skillets, baking pans, and other kitchen essentials, aluminum can also be used for these items. Usually created using the die cast approach, the cookware can withstand the high temperatures required to cook food properly and will remain useful for a number of years with no more than minimal care.
This metal is also used to create outdoor furniture, including chairs, gliders, and tables. While not quite as popular as cast iron furniture for the lawn, aluminum patio furniture is somewhat more lightweight and can be moved around the space with greater ease.

Cast Aluminum is a lower value aluminum and is produced by casting a molten mix of grades 356 and 380 aluminum.

  • To receive full value you must clean the Aluminum by removing all contaminants such as iron, glass, wood excessive glue or caked on paint.
  • To scrap clean casted aluminum, make sure it has no steel, rubber, or attachments.
  • Aluminum is non-magnetic and so be sure to check with a good magnet for iron contaminants.

Aluminum Turnings Turnings or shavings are usually found at machine shops and left after drilling holes into a block or sheet of aluminum. These turnings have less value than aluminum sheet because recovery is less in the smelting processes and also more likely to be contaminated with oil used for cooling the drilling tools.
