Non Ferrous

  • BRAZIERY COPPER
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    This grade contains most of things the other grades can’t, tinned, soldered, brazed or painted, no problems even up to 5% brass (not the 25% that some of our favourite customers try and sell us occasionally). This grade should be free of other iron or contaminants and strictly speaking 95% copper scrap.

  • BRIGHT TINNED COPPER WIRE
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Another grade that is found in electric cable, clean copper but with a tinned coating, this makes it silver grey in colour rather than copper or green with oxidisation, must be free of any other contaminant.

  • BURNT AND PAINTED COPPER BUS BAR
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Flat or round copper conducting bar that is painted or has been burnt, must be free of other metals.

  • CLEAN FLAT COPPER BUS BAR
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Flat copper bar used for conducting electricity in locations where wire is not suitable, must be free of all contamination and not burnt.

  • COPPER BACK BOILERS
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Copper fireback boilers, usually oxidised green not to be confused with the stainless steel variety.

  • COPPER CYLINDERS
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Copper heating cylinders, usually found in airing cupboards, bathrooms, etc., may have the odd brass fitting on. The heating element should be removed or there will be a 1 kilo deduction, foam insulated cylinders are acceptable but again there will be a small weight deduction, should also be empty of water, it is amazing how many customers try to sell us good old Yorkshire water.

  • COPPER ELEMENTS
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    The heating elements removed from hot water cylinders, those will usually contain the brass end with electrical contacts and may be a plastic cover and a short length of flex.

  • COPPER PYRO TENAX CABLE
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Used for conducting electricity, looks like a copper tube but has several strands of copper inside the tube which are insulated from each other and outside by a white chalk like material, not to be mistaken for the pvc coated pyro.

  • COPPER TRANSFORMER TAPE
    (Non-Ferrous : Copper)

    Usually sourced from the coil forming part of a transform, the copper being in flat tape or bar form rather than wire, usually has to be burnt to remove contamination, solderise or brazed joints must be removed.
