Typically, the HMS ferrous scrap purchased by steel mills operating electric arc furnaces contains  between 6 and 12% of non-ferrous contaminants made of soil, rocks, concrete, wood, rubber, non-ferrous metals,...

The SGM proprietary HMS Scrap Cleaning Line allows to  drastically that contamination with a direct positive impact on the yield of the furnace ( less kwh per ton of ferrous melted), reduction in the cost of lime and improvement in the quality of the steel produced by reducing the non-ferrous metal contamination like copper, zinc, aluminum, … which, instead of representing  a problem can turn into an additional source of revenue.

The use of the SGM HMS Scrap Cleaning Lines allows steel mills to better assess the ferrous purity of the scrap they buy and better negotiate its  price. 

The SGM HMS Scrap Cleaning Line consists in a complete assembly made of a structure with receiving  hopper for the HMS Scrap, self-cleaning feeder  and a proprietary magnet drum design. It can be sized for processing 100 and 150 tons per hour which is ideal for steel mills using 300.000 tons per year of scrap to their furnace.

SGM disposes of extensive experience and references for its HMS Scrap Cleaning Line in countries like Turkey and Spain which are important importers of scrap from all over the world.

The SGM HMS Scrap Cleaning Line is specifically designed to meet the robustness and reliability requirements of an industrial steel mill  use.
