Compressors Recycling Perth

After the depollution step, air conditioners are crushed to enable the separation of different valuable materials. Compressors (solid parts) can sometimes be removed from air conditioners before crushing in order to avoid damage to crusher.

After the crushing process, steps of sorting are used to separate ferrous metals, nonferrous metals and plastics to direct them to appropriate treatment methods.

Copper recycling

Copper is 100% Recyclable and one of few metal materials that can be recycled repeatedly without any loss of performance. Perth metal recyclers, like the skilled team at Wanneroo Metal recycling, love handling this material because it is a high-quality metal with endless potential.  There is also no distinctive difference in the quality of recycled copper, mined copper, and copper in retail products, thus they can be used interchangeably. Copper recycling is a highly eco-efficient way of reintroducing valuable material back into the economy because it requires less energy than primary production and reduces CO2 emissions. We also know that the recycling of complex copper scrap, such as electronic waste, can be very useful in driving the recovery of our non-ferrous metals. The work of collecting and reprocessing increasingly complex materials containing copper is an essential service that we are proud to provide to locals. 

Importance of copper recycling

The usual commercial supply of pure copper is used far and wide for many of the products in homes and common workplaces. This includes everything from electrical wiring (copper is one of the best metal conductors of electricity), to plumbing pipes and many of the everyday appliances in our daily use like workplace equipment and electrical devices. Copper is a non-ferrous metal, meaning that it is not magnetic. The copper recycling process saves between 85-90 per cent of the energy needed to mine the earth for new copper ore.

In our work of professional metal recycling, we have to protect the properties and maintain quality to ensure that it can provide additional value in the local supply chain. Not only that, but we have to work consistently at providing the greater public with a reliable place to go to recycle their materials. Copper continues to be a material of choice for numerous domestic, industrial, and high-technology applications today. And recycled copper materials play a big part in advancing their mainstream production.

Recycling copper

Copper materials, and products containing them, have to be recycled regularly to prevent wastage. Recycling copper is a highly valuable part of our processing efforts because it is 100% recyclable without any detrimental effect on its properties. Products or materials with copper in them, typically identified as electrical cables, old taps, copper plumbing pipes and scrap from copper/copper alloy production and manufacturing, will be gathered by us for proper processing. After we dismantle, grind and sort these materials – they will be sent for melting, casting, and manufacture of new copper products.
