Brass Scrap

we have committed to conducting sustainable business operations that create value for customers, our communities, and the earth.

Scrap Metal Traders are a conscientious team of professionals trying to make the world better by doing their job. One of the common metals that we collect and recycle is brass. 

Brass is commonly found in household items that include knobs, hose couplings, sockets, and also in jewllery. If you work in the Air conditioning industry or are a part of plumbing, car repair or similar projects, chances are that you will find brass around you in different shapes and forms.  

It is a highly recyclable metal. An alloy of copper and zinc, brass has a rich history of use across the world and in many cultures.  

Brass looks very similar to bronze and might also be considered a substitute for metal. These metals, however are different and depict different properties that can be advantageous depending on their use. For instance, where bronze is more resistant to corrosion, brass is a great metal to use because it can be used for different purposes.  

At Scrap Metal Traders we deal with residential as well as commercial collectors of scrap brass. If you are a collector, you can call us to discuss how to dispose of this scrap. As a leading professional in the scrap metal industry, we follow proper processes that allow us to get most of the metal back into functional use.  

These are the steps we follow to put scrap brass back into use. 

The first step is collection: 

We receive calls from customers like you and ask them about the volume of scrap brass that they have. This is used to determine if the customer qualifies for a free pick up of the scrap. Once we have sorted out the details, and the scrap is with us, we sort it out to put it into processing.  

The second step is processing: 

We crush the brass so that it gets condensed and takes up less space. The curshed brass is in the form of sheets that are easy for the next step. 

The third step is melting: 

The brass sheets are melted into a liquid so that they are in a form that can be used to make other items.  

The fourth stage is when the metal is decontaminated. Brass includes impurities, especially as it has been used for different purposes. In order for brass to be put to renewed use, it has to be decontaminated. This stage refines the metal. 

Finally the metal is hardened and cooled into a shape that is required. It could be tubes, bars, or blocks.  

The brass scrap that is recycled can be used for the same purpose that it was before, this is because one of the most spectacular qualities of this metal is that it can be reused multiple times without loosing any of its features.  

At Scrap Metal Traders we take care to make sure that all our processes are followed with proper quality control. The metal that comes to us in the form of different items is processed in a manner so that the maximun quantity of the brass is extracted.  

The team at Scrap Metal Traders is particularly careful with regards to safety precautions. The team dealing with the metal, whether during collection or during recycling is all protected through safety gear. They are constantly given training on how to prevent accidents from happening, and also on how to ensure safety at work.  

However, it is not only our own people whom we safeguard. We also have a duty to our customers which is why when you call us to say that you have a collection of brass to dispose, our customer representatives are ready with advice. They will give you suggestions on how to keep you protected against any harm that the scrap metals can cause. You should know that metals are hard and can have sharp edges that can cause nasty cuts and bruises. 

For our readers, we would like to advise them also to make sure to wear thick clothes like jeans, and that they should wear heavy rubber gloves when coming in contact with scrap metal.  

While safety precautions are important, you should also make sure that you don’t leave the scrap brass lying around your home or commercial property for too long. It can get oxidized and loose its color and can actually become weaker by not being in use. Our suggestion? Try to sell it off or dispose of it as fast as you can. in case you are selling, the sooner you sell your brass the better it is for you and for the environment. Moreover, oxidized brass might not yield a value as great as brass which is in good condition.
