Nickel Scrap Recycling

Your global resource for nickel recycling and processing, Globe Metal® buys all forms of nickel material, including turnings, solid scrap, powder, grinding sludge, filter cake from plating operations, fines, high- and low-grade nickel, nickel waste by-products, spent catalysts, slag, stainless steel powder, stainless steel mill scale from foundries, alloys, rounds, cut-offs, chips, waste water residue that contains nickel content, nickel residue and raney nickel scrap.

What is Nickel?

Nickel is a chemical element with symbol Ni and atomic number 28. It is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge, and it belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile.

Forms that Globe Metal® Can Recycle

  • Inconel Scrap: We recycle all Inconel alloys—600, 601, 625, 690, 702, 713C, 718, 738, 751, 792, 800, 825, 901 and 939—and Inconel solids, turnings, chips, powder, grindings, grinding sludge and grinding swarf.
  • Monel Scrap: We recycle all Monel alloys—400, 401, 404, K-500 and R-406—and in any form including Monel turnings, solids, chips, grindings, and powder.
  • Hastelloy Scrap: We recycle Hastelloy scrap in any form—turnings, chips, grindings, solids and powder—and all Hastelloy alloys: A, B, B2, B3, B142T, Hastelloy Hybrid-BC1, C, C4, C22, C22HS, C2000, C263, C276, D, F, G, G2, G3, G30, G50 H9M, N, R235, S, W and X.
  • Rene Scrap: Rene 220, Rene 142, Rene 77, Rene 80, Rene 88, Rene 95, Rene 108, Rene 125, Rene N5, Rene N500 and Rene N515.
  • Other: Waspaloy, Udimet 500, Udimet 520, Udimet 600, Mar M 246, PWA 663 (B1900), Mar M200, Mar M 002, Mar M 247, etc.

What is Hastelloy?

Hastelloy Alloys are nickel-molybdenum corrosion-resistant superalloys, and have a low carbon content making them corrosion-resistant.  Because of this, they are used for a wide range of welding, chemical processing, pollution control, and waste treatment applications. It is considered one of the most versatile nickel-alloys.

Hastelloy nickel alloys are used in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, biomass, liquified natural gas, geothermal, mining, utilities, and solar and nuclear power.

What is Haynes?

Haynes Metal Alloys are cobalt-based alloys that are extremely strong, temperature and oxidation resistant. Some common uses for Haynes Alloys are as turbine engine components, flame holders, combusters, and even in heart valves!

Because they are oxidation resistant, Haynes Alloys are often used in welding and fabrication in a number of industries.

High Temperature And Super Alloys

Globe Metal® partners with companies in industries like the aerospace and additive manufacturing to recycle high temperature and super alloys, including Inconel, hastelloy, waspaloy, Rene, PWA, Stellite, Nimonic, GTD,  Mar M, and Udimet.

Who Sells To Globe Metal®?

Globe Metal® recycles pure nickel, alloys and superalloys (Inconel, Monel, and Hastelloy). We recover any material running 10% Ni or more. Globe Metal® recycles metals from industries like additive manufacturing and the aerospace.
