Services

Swarf management

Swarf (or filings, shavings, metal chips or turnings) are generated by grinding, drilling, turning, milling or cutting tools in the machining of metals and other elements.

2 Recycling offer a swarf management system which includes providing smaller bins and wheelie bins. Being smaller and more manoeuvrable than bigger containers, they can be placed directly next to the machinery so less time is spent emptying the machine. It also means that different types of material are sorted as they are processed which provides a higher paid price than if you recycled mixed materials.

To save space on site, and down-time when bins are full, they are replaced as frequently as needed with collection of materials at the same time. Whether it is daily, weekly or monthly, we will handle all the material you are generating to ensure production does not come to a stop.

• Collection are executed promptly and professionally, typically the next day.
Secure containers available.
• Carbide and high-speed steel bins are available.

You can significantly reduce consumption of cutting fluids and water, reduce the amount of waste fluid collected and disposed of, end fluid leaks and save thousands.

Talk to us about the best way to get your Coolant Saver to start saving money and then claim your FREE suction head protection tube.

For more information download our brochure or call us on 01476 513900.

Transportation and loading

Our dedicated and varied fleet of lorries provide next day collection from all over the UK. A dedicated fleet means that we can time your collection to your convenience and if you don’t have a forklift, we’ll bring it to you. Many of our lorries are equipped with their own forklifts and can load up the lorry ourselves.

Even if your wheelie bins are 150 kg capacity, our tail lift vehicles which we use with our pallet trucks can be used to load up your scrap. With our smallest capacity tail lift at 1000 kgs, there’s no problem lifting.

Satellite tracking

2 Recycling have installed the latest driver to computer messaging and satellite tracking system to all of its vehicles. Incorporating hands free mobile telephones, we can communicate to the driver, directing and tracking the driver right up until he returns to our central depot for offloading into our secure warehouses.

Metal sorting and grading

Precise metal sorting is difficult to achieve without the correct equipment. At 2 Recycling we do not rely on old fashioned methods and instead prefer using the latest X-ray spectrometers to grade all of our metals. With so many new alloys being invented it is more important than ever to know the precise make-up of the alloy we are buying from our customers. By knowing this information, we can then select the best end user outlet for the particular grade we have, allowing us to pass on better prices.

Mobile metal testing service before sending to scrap metal recyclers

Mobile metal testing service

is an extra part of the service we offer our customers. If you have some surplus stock in your warehouse and you do not know which grade of metal it is, why not ask us to come and check it with one of our mobile XRF analyzer guns. Alternatively send us a sample and we will email you the results.

XRF analyzer for scrap metal sorting

XRF analyzer

Fast, accurate scrap metal sorting is fundamental to any scrap metal recycling operation. And with volatile commodity prices, this need has never been more important. Advances in scrap sorting technology, pioneered by Thermo Scientific handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers, have revolutionised the way that major scrap metal recyclers and processors conduct their business. Thermo Scientific mobile XRF analyzers are so accurate, that they are used by almost all of the world’s largest metals recyclers.
