Metals

 

Steel is easily separated with magnets.

Stainless steel can be separated with special, very strong neodymium magnets.

Copper and aluminium can be separated with eddy-current machinery or by using optical sorters.

Precious metals are usually recovered through different chemical processes.

The effectiveness of the processing depends largely on the quality of the infeed material and of the different process steps chosen.
