Ferrous metals contain iron, and are known for their strength. Think steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, cast iron. Ferrous metals are used in both architectural and industrial fabrication, such as skyscrapers, bridges, vehicles, and railroads. Thanks to their magnetic properties, ferrous metals are also used in appliances and engines. Ferrous metals also have a high carbon content, which generally makes them prone to rust. The exceptions are stainless steel, because of chromium, and wrought iron because of its high pure iron content.
Homogeneous iron and steel scrap magnetically separated, originating from automobiles, unprepared No. 1 and No. 2 steel, miscellaneous baling and sheet scrap. Average density 70 pounds per cubic foot.
Heavy melting steel (HMS) or heavy melting scrap is for recyclable steel and wrought iron. This is further broken up into 2 major categories: HMS1 and HMS2. Where in HMS1 does not contain galvanized and blackened steel where as the HMS 2 does. Both HMS 1 and 2 comprise obsolete scrap only - iron and steel recovered from items demolished or dismantled at the end of their life.

This type of scrap is found in vechiles which has disc brakes installed in them.Once a vechile be it a train, car or even bikes all of them have brakes in them and this is made from cast iron. Once the vechile is sent for scrap these parts are removed separately and if in good use are sent for refurbshing to the plant and if has wear and tear then its is sent for remelting.
Manganese Steel Scrap,has features like durability and sturdiness,as it is manufactured from top quality manganese steel. The steel scraps are checked properly on industry defined parameters and sent to the factory for reuse. This type of steel is rust resistance with high strength and can be re-used again.
