Ferrous metals is a category of metal with a high iron content. We determine the categorization of particular parts here on site, but generally speaking, metals with a higher iron content are considered ferrous metals. Here are some of the things we typically do with ferrous metals:
Heavy Melt: Heavy melt essentially refers to the end product smelting metal into a smaller, denser package, which makes the material easier to ship efficiently.
Cast Iron: Cast iron is often found in things like brake rotors and drums from motor vehicles, especially in older vehicles.
Turnings: Metal chop — the sawdust of the world of metal! We can handle and take care of leftover metal that has been processed or chopped.
Bushelling: Typically applies to thin uncoated clippings and/or stamping offcuts from manufacturing operations.
Plate & Structural: Refers to steel plates like the skid plate off of a car, or the plate found in things like forklifts. Structural ferrous is often found in things like I-Beams or other support beams.
Auto Cast: Commonly work with rotors and drums from cars, and older engine blocks.
