Stainless

Stainless Steel is defined as a ferrous alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content. The name originates from the fact that stainless steel stains, or rusts, less easily than ordinary steel. Stainless has higher resistance to oxidation (rust) & corrosion in several environments.

UCG deals in all grades of stainless steel & high-nickel alloys. The metal is obtained from a variety of sources nationally. Industrially generated scrap such as from the manufacturing/fabrication sector & catering sector is a valuable source of material. Stainless steel is also gained from redundant plant within the chemical sector.

The material is sorted & graded by trained personnel using the latest spectro-analytical equipment. Our highly organised yard space allows segregation of materials and prevents cross contamination. UCG Recycling is committed to maintaining the highest quality standards.

We perform 4 functions in the sorting, sizing & processing of Stainless steel & high nickel alloy: Spectro analysis, bailing, cropping & plasma cutting

Spectro-analysis involves sparking pieces of stainless in order to identify the chemical composition & ultimately, the specific grade.

High-density 300 x 300mm stainless steel Bales are supplied as a secondary raw material.

Cropping produces specific stainless steel lengths for foundry applications.

Our Plasma-cutting facility allows oversize materials to be prepared quickly and efficiently.

UCG Recycling is a proud member of SASSDA (South African Stainless Steel Development Association)
