High-Speed Tool Steel

Recycling High-Speed Tool Steelrecycle high speed tool metal

Scrap high-speed tool steel is a set of tool steel alloys. They are named for their capacity to cut materials faster than traditional high-carbon steels previously used in cutting tools. They have superior hardness, abrasion resistance, and resistance against softening at high temperatures.

How to Scrap High-Speed Tool Steel

Steel could be recycled many times without losing any of its characteristics. Recycling 1 ton of steel saves 10.9 million Btu’s of energy, 1.8 barrels of oil, 2.3 m3 of landfill space and 642 kWh of energy.

You can recycle High Speed Steel Recycling by following these steps:

  • Sorting – Separate magnets from other materials.
  • Shredding – Shredders are designed with the help of rotating magnetic drums that extract steel and iron from various other materials and metals.
  • Media separation- With liquid floating systems, utilizing electrical currents and high-pressure air flows; extra separation of steel from other supplies could be obtained.
  • Shearing – Hydraulic machinery cuts thick heavy steel recovered from railways and ships.

After this process, steel is melted and then reformed to a range of commodities ranging from office supplies to trucks.
