The undoubted advantage of non-ferrous scrap (non-ferrous metal) is its high cost. The most valuable types of non-ferrous metals are: copper, which can be sold at a price that 20 times higher than ferrous scrap (up to 90 hryvnia per 1 kg) and brass (an alloy of copper with zinc and tin) - up to 65 hryvnia. The most expensive non-ferrous metals are nickel and tin, although they are rarely found, but they are even 3 times higher than copper.

Nickel is usually part of stainless steel and significantly increases its value. The value of stainless steel in the market of recycling materials is growing in proportion to the nickel content, about 2 hryvnia per 1%. The standard content of this material in stainless steel is 8% and 10%. Stainless steel, in which chromium is used instead of nickel or silicon, has no such value and is accepted at the price of ordinary ferrous metal.

The smallest cost in the market for non-ferrous metals is given for aluminum - up to 23 hryvnia and stainless steel - up to 17.

How much does ferrous scrap cost in Kharkiv?

There are hundreds of scrap metal junkyards in Kharkiv today. Almost all acceptors declare that they purchase scrap metal expensive or at highest cost!

It is important to understand that scrap acceptors for promotional purposes usually put a non-existent or maximum price, which is elusive in reality and depends on a number of factors.

Our prices are current and they are given with due regard for contamination content! Call us to find out all the details regarding your case.

Do you sell scrap infrequently and have not decided on the most suitable company and price for you yet? Then it makes sense at least to look for offers in the Internet and try to analyze and check them. After that, call Cheburator again.

If you do not find out from the acceptor, what the conditions are, in advance, and what exactly is included in the proposed price for scrap, be ready to get much less money and a number of arguments (which were prudently kept silent), why it is so, at the time of selling scrap at the reception site.

Most likely, the real price for scrap will be somewhere within the price range specified in the price list, therefore such offers are more correct and should be considered first of all.

How to increase the value of sold non-ferrous scrap

Large scrap purchasers are unlikely to buy only a few kilograms of metal from you at a high price. Remember that to sell non-ferrous scrap at the highest possible price, it makes sense to collect at least several tens of kilograms of this material before turning to the reception center.

In the case of scrapping a large product or device consisting of various units and materials (for example, a passenger car, electric motor or refrigerator) and time permitting, having tools and desire to earn more – it makes sense to disassemble them by removing non-metallic parts, made of glass and plastic. Otherwise, employees of the receiving site will do this work for you later, but this will lower the scrap purchase price.

Using the methods described here, try to identify the metallic elements related to the non-ferrous metal, and separate them from ferrous scrap, which is much cheaper.

Cables containing wires from non-ferrous metals should be completely free of insulation to increase their value at the time of scrappage. This can be done either with a knife or with a more productive method of roasting on fire or with a burner for burning out plastic insulation. If you do not release the metal wire from insulation, it will be difficult to determine its appearance and condition.

Benefits from the collection and disposal of non-ferrous metals

Nowadays, non-ferrous metal scrap, or non-ferrous metal, is a popular and valuable type of waste, which mainly includes industrial electrical equipment and wires, as well as some products and its constituent elements, manufactured by the metalworking, construction and chemical industry, medical equipment, automotive and aircraft products, as well as materials that are part of numerous household appliances.

In contrast to steel, non-ferrous metals do not contain iron and have significantly higher rates of tableware electrical and thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance and plasticity. It should be noted especially stainless steel, which, although contains iron, but still ranks as non-ferrous metals due to the presence of nickel. Stainless steel may have a different composition, but nickel is the metal that is valued in it. Special steels also have the presence of non-ferrous metal alloying additives and are valued above normal scrap.

Since ancient times, humanity has used copper and bronze for making of implements, tools and jewelry, and now they are extremely popular non-ferrous metals. These metals are found in nature and environment much less frequently than iron. In addition, products from non-ferrous metals have lower strength and durability.

Over time or for other reasons, structures, even made of these durable materials, still wear out, become unusable, are decommissioned, or simply become unnecessary. In this case, such metal products are considered to be non-ferrous scrap metal. Usually they are stored somewhere in the territory of enterprises, put in the trash, or simply left in the workplace until getting rid of them.

Non-ferrous metals can be reused without the need to extract them again from natural resources, while polluting the environment with hazardous waste. According to statistics, aluminum is the most recyclable non-ferrous metal, which accounts for more than 60%. It is followed by copper - 15%, tin and lead - 18%, and stainless steel - 2%.

The ever-increasing demand for new metal and modern technologies for its collection and utilization for recycling provides excellent opportunities for every scrap metal owner, not only to get rid of garbage, freeing up valuable space, but also to make good money.

How to determine the type and condition of metal in non-ferrous scrap

First, scrap owners should try to collect all of the existing metal and its waste in one place in order to give some information of its total amount and composition, and then describe it as a list for estimating and calculating the approximate cost.

1. Reaction to a magnet

Quite easily, but not always accurately, the type and composition of the metal can be determined by the reaction to a small neodymium magnet on a thin rope. Non-ferrous metals react to it differently: pure copper and lead are not attracted to a magnet, tin and titanium are weakly attracted, and nickel is attracted strongly! For example, if you drive a magnet along a piece of pure copper, it will repel slightly, and in the case of brass, it will even slightly adhere to it due to the presence of tin in the alloy.

2. Colour and density of the metal

Experienced professionals who work at our receiving sites are able to determine the approximate appearance of the metal by its colour and density immediately:

  • Copper is a reddish metal, depending on the state it may have greenish areas of rust;
  • Brass is a heavy alloy of copper, zinc and a little tin, which has a reddish or yellow tinge and grayish spots. Red brass is less common, but is valued above yellow because of its higher copper content. This is a popular material for pipes and plumbing;
  • Bronze is a widespread alloy of 80% copper and 20% tin. Often used not only as a material for sculptures and objects of internal decor, in the form of chandeliers and door handles, but also for bearings and other high-friction machine parts. It is often practically impossible to distinguish bronze from brass without special equipment, and their value is almost the same;
  • Aluminum has a silver colour, but it is often painted white. Metal easily bends in thin products;
  • Tin has a silvery-white colour with a matt surface and it is easily melted by a soldering iron;
  • Lead is darker than tin and about 2 times heavier than it is;
  • Stainless steel has a brilliant light silver or golden hue and different value depending on the percentage of nickel it contains. If, instead of nickel, metal contains manganese or silicon, it is accepted at the price of normal ferrous scrap;
  • Nickel is a silver-white metal with a matt surface. It is used mainly as a component in stainless steel and is rarely found in its pure form;
  • Titanium is lighter than a stainless steel, it is rarely found and much more expensive than it is.

3. Types of spark that occurs when cutting metal

There is another, more advanced way to determine the content of the metal in terms of the appearance and colour of the spark, carved by the angle grinder when it is cut. However, only a limited number of experts can use this method, among whom are employees of Cheburator, too.

In general, it can be noted that, depending on the composition of the metal, the carved spark differs in the following way:

  • nickel stainless steel gives a reddish spark in the form of a steady stream;
  • manganese stainless steel gives a spark splashing to the sides, like a Roman candle;
  • when cutting chrome stainless steel, the carved spark has approximately the same appearance as when cutting ferrous metal;
  • titanium gives a white spark, with a slightly purple tint.

4. Using a spectrometer for accurate metal determination

If necessary, we will conduct an accurate spectral analysis within 2 hours to determine composition of the metal sample provided to us.
