Ferrous

Ferrous metals are those metals that include iron and all iron derivatives. Ferrous also refer to a group of metals that are naturally attracted to magnets. Iron, nickel, cobalt, neodymium, and praseodymium are all ferrous in this regard.

UCG Recycling is the largest processor of iron & steel scrap on the West Rand and is a major supplier to most local foundries & mills.

Ferrous scrap is sourced from mostly industrial suppliers & various dealers within the Gauteng region.

The metal is graded, sorted & processed to suit each customer’s furnace applications or reusable steel requirements.Highly trained & experienced personnel thoroughly inspect all materials and all harmful trace elements are detected and contaminated materials removed.

We operate 4 main processes for cleaning, sizing & upgrading ferrous materials: shearing, baling, cropping & gas cutting.

Our 550-ton hydraulic Shear produces clean-cut grades of ferrous scrap for mill consumption.

Our Baling press produces high quality 650 x 750mm or 300 x 300mm new black bales for critical quality specifications.

Cropping is the most labour intensive of our activities & produces specifically sized dense in-feed material for foundry applications.

The Gas-cutting facility allows oversize materials to be prepared quickly and efficiently.

Punchings, primarily used for ballasts, are sorted & packed into drums.

Ferrous pricing is based on the Rotterdam Metal Exchange as indicated in the metal bulletin.
