Scrap copper shavings
Orion-Spetssplav-Gatchina LLC buys copper chips. We are interested in creating long-term relationships with suppliers on a contractual basis. For our part, we guarantee a personal approach and transparent terms of cooperation.
Copper chips are formed during the processing of copper and its alloys on metalworking machines and other equipment. Most often it has a twisted shape. Traditionally, industrial enterprises where boring and milling of non-ferrous metals is carried out become the main source of scrap. As a rule, the chips are a waste of the main production, so they are disposed of or sent for recycling.
The cost of scrap is much cheaper than long products. This is due not only to the small residual dimensions, but also to the fact that dirt, oil and other side components are present in the raw form in the composition of copper chips. However, despite various impurities, the Cu content remains at a high level.
Scope of application of copper chips
Copper is a unique element with such characteristics as:
- electrical conductivity;
- increased resistance to oxidation.
After appropriate processing, the copper chips become suitable for the production of ligatures and foundry alloys. The latter are widely used in the metallurgical industry. Ligatures with Cu content are well absorbed in the melt.
Before entering the furnace, scrap undergoes labor-intensive preparation on special equipment. The copper chips are processed in a centrifuge, where the oil is pressed. It is also crushed into small fractions and packed by pressing and briquetting into compact bags. This facilitates transportation and increases the convenience of further processing. In the end, it is possible to obtain high-quality non-ferrous metal without foreign impurities.
