We Recycle Radiators and Other Machinery

Radiators are widely used in automobiles and other home heating systems. Their basic function is to allow engines of machines to maintain a cooler temperature by passing a cooling agent through the unit. Generally, scrap yards like Vic Recycle Metals are willing to pay special prices for the radiator ends. There are various forms of radiators and it’s always important to separate and clean them for best recycling practices. In the scrap machine industry, there are various phrases used for them – ACRs, copper fin, aluminium radiators, copper radiators, brass rads and more.

Types of Radiators

There are two main types of radiators, including:

  • Car Radiators: These pump a mixture of antifreeze and water into the engine block to maintain an optimal temperature. They play a major role in keeping the engine running and giving you a smooth ride. Radiators in older automobiles are generally made of copper and brass. In the newest models, they are constructed from lighter and more affordable aluminium. The headers and tanks which hold the coolant also have high scrap value due to the aluminium/brass and cast iron body.
  • Heating Radiator: Generally made of cast iron, these function in the opposite way to car radiators. These radiators are usually made of aluminium foil and copper tube – both of which have great recycle value.
