Sabot STAINLESS STEEL SCRAP Shall consist of clean 18-8 type stainless steel clips and solids containing a minimum 7% nickel, 16% chrome, and have a maximum of .50% molybde- num, .50% copper, .045% phosphorous, and .03% sulfur, and otherwise free of harmful contaminants. Particulars concerning physical description, grading, additional analysis, and preparation to be agreed upon between buyer and seller. Saint NICKEL BEARING SCRAP Any nickel bearing alloy scrap that contains a mini- mum of 3% recovered nickel. Nickel content to be determined by recovery after buyer’s evaluation minus any non-conforming material and/or con- tamination. Balance of elements contained to be discussed between buyer and seller. Material is to be free of any foreign material. Final material specifica- tions to be determined between buyer and seller. Ultra STAINLESS STEEL TURNINGS Shall consist of clean 18-8 type stainless steel turn- ings containing a minimum 7% nickel and 16% chrome, and to be free of nonferrous metals, non- metallics, excessive iron, oil and other contaminants. Particulars concerning physical description, assay, and packaging to be agreed upon between buyer and seller. Vaunt EDISON BATTERIES Nickel-iron batteries to be sold free of crates, copper terminal connectors, and excess liquid. Must be free of nickel cadmium batteries. Zurik SHREDDED NONFERROUS SENSOR SORTED SCRAP (predominantly stainless steel) Shall be made up of a combination of the nonfer- rous metals: stainless steel, insulated copper wire, aluminum, copper, lead, magnesium, nickel, tin, and zinc, in elemental or alloyed (solid) form. The percentage of each metal within the nonferrous concentrate shall be subject to agreement between buyer and seller. Material generated by computer sensing equipment (e.g., induction sensor sorting or X-ray) technique(s). Shall have passed one or more magnets to reduce or eliminate free iron and/or large iron attachments. Shall be free of radioactive material, dross, or ash. Material to be bought/sold under this guideline shall be identified as “Zurik” with a number to follow indicating the estimated percentage nonferrous content of the material (e.g., “Zurik 90” means the material contains approxi- mately 90% nonferrous metal content). May also be screened to permit description by specific size ranges. (Refer also to Zurik under Mixed Metals.) MIXED METALS HEAVIER PIECES OF ANY SIZE, LENGTH, AND WEIGHT ACCEPTABLE UPON MUTUAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN BUYER AND SELLER. Darth BALLASTS (FLUORESCENT) Shall consist of whole and complete fluorescent light ballasts containing copper inside. Must not contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Electronic ballasts subject to agreement between buyer and seller. Vader SEALED UNITS Shall consist of whole steel-cased compressors origi- nating from condensers from air conditioner units, freezers, refrigerators or the like, containing a motor inside. Free of hazardous materials, including chloro- fluorocarbons (CFCs) or other refrigerants and poly- chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). No loose iron or extra iron attachments such as framework permitted. Elmo MIXED ELECTRIC MOTORS Shall consist of whole electric motors and/or disman- tled electric motor parts that are primarily copper- wound. May contain some aluminum-wound material, subject to agreement between buyer and seller. No excessive steel attachments such as gear reducers, iron bases, and pumps, or loose free iron allowed. Specification not to include sealed units or cast iron compressors. Small Elmo ELECTRIC MOTORS Shall be sized to approximately basketball size or smaller and shall consist of whole electric motors and/or dismantled electric motor parts that are pri- marily copper-wound. May contain some aluminum- wound material, subject to agreement between buyer and seller. No excessive steel attachments such as gear reducers, iron bases, and pumps, or loose free iron allowed. Specification not to include sealed units or cast iron compressors. Sheema SHREDDED ELECTRIC MOTORS (also called “shredder pickings” or “meatballs”) Shall consist of mixed copper and aluminum bearing material from ferrous shredding, comprised of motors without cases. May contain insulated copper harness wire, subject to agreement between buyer and seller. Trace percentages of other contaminants and fines may be present. No free iron or sealed units. Shelmo SHREDDED ELECTRIC MOTORS (also called “shredder pickings” or “meatballs”) Shall consist of mixed copper-bearing material from ferrous shredding, comprised of motors without cases. May contain up to 5 percent aluminum-wound material and may contain insulated copper harness wire, subject to agreement between buyer and seller. Trace percentages of other contaminants and fines may be present. No free iron or sealed units.
