Metal Recycler Installed New System to Boost Metal Recovery

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Nova Scotia, Canada based Dartmouth Metals Ltd. announced that it has commissioned a small non-ferrous system from Wendt Corporation. The installation of the system is part of the company’s strategy to recover greater percentage of non-ferrous metals. The move is expected to open additional markets for the material, said the company press release.

According to Dave Giberson, Manager, Dartmouth Metals, the company has been operating its automobile shredder residue (ASR) through eddy current separators, leaving huge volumes of non-ferrous metals uncaptured. The sampling data suggested that the company has been achieving only 6% metallic recovery rate with the existing system, whereas it could be boosted up to 11-14%.

The decision to invest in the new system followed the realization that the company was missing half of the material that it could have been recovering, Giberson noted. The new system will make its yard a more appealing place to work. Apart from boosted metal recovery, the system also promises increased labor savings.

Dartmouth Metals is a third generation, family-operated business serving the scrap industry since the 1960s. It employs nearly forty people.
