Significant investment in
our turning processing line

Our new facilities now provide a specialist metal turnings & swarf processing service. We are one of the rare metal companies in the UK providing, Turning’s crushing, washing and drying upgrade for your superalloy materials. William Rowland can also Briquette and compact your turnings to significantly increase the density of the material for more efficient melting.

Crushing Process

On receipt of your material, each batch of turnings will be assigned a unique identification number to ensure full traceability throughout all our processes. Each batch will then be crushed separately with thorough clean downs in between campaigns to prevent alloy contamination risk.

Prior to crushing our operatives carry out an XRF inspection and feedback promptly to the customer the analytical findings. The Turnings are then crushed via use of our ring mill to ensure a uniform and free flowing product that is fit for optimum cleaning.

Cleaning and Drying Process

Working with the equipment supplier, William Rowland have designed a bespoke Turnings cleaning line that allows successful upgrade of Superalloys to a customer specification so that the material can be re-melted in a Vacuum or Airmelt application.

Throughout the cleaning process the material runs through an Aqueous Wash System which is environmentally friendly achieving faster processing times for our customers.

Fines Separation segregates smaller sized particles that can inhibit high Oxygen & Nitrogen.

In the Dryer, the materials are dried at optimum temperatures that carefully control the pick-up of additional Oxygen & Nitrogen that can be detrimental to the overall chemical analysis.

Magnetic Alloy Separation and Processing with the use of powerful overband magnets ensures separation and segregation of magnetic material from non- magnetic products. Our process also allows us to reverse the process and remove non-magnetics from magnetic alloys.

In-line process control allows us to monitor product quality throughout our process with the use of Carbon & Sulphur Gas analysers. Flow sampling is then used from start to finish to ensure consistency and each batch is provided with full certificate of analysis.

Improved density through briquetting of washed turnings

For material that is low in density we can compress material into ‘pucks’ of 70-90mm Dia and weighing 1-1.5 kgs, this process improves density and reduces the amount of packaging, which in turn can reduce transport costs. Again, each lot will be processed separately and in entirety to ensure lot traceability throughout.
