When scrap metal inspection is undertaken, there are many aspects to consider when dealing with ferrous or non-ferrous metals. Scrap metal is one of the more complicated materials to inspect out of the recyclables, since impurities, corrosion, fatigue need to be taken into account. Not to mention there is also the issue of investigating toxicities, such as oil or chemical residue present, which could be involved when dealing with scrap metal.


While conducting a metal scrap inspection, it is more than just a visual inspection on site. At CWM Survey & Inspection we have our own testing facilities along with the cooperation of a number of internationally acclaimed laboratories on offer. This means we are able to conduct tests on scrap metals, such as Silver Nitrate testing, in order to determine whether there is a presence of chloride residue or if there is any danger of radioactivity in a consignment.
