About 304 Stainless Steel

Let’s Talk About Stainless Steel Scrap

When scrapping, you will often come across 304 Stainless Steel scrap. You can commonly find 304 stainless steel scrap is commonly found in machine shops, kitchenware, and exhaust systems. Upgrading your appliances may not be so bad if your old stainless steel appliances are scrapped for cash, so look for the current 304 Stainless Steel Scrap Prices. Use a magnet to be sure that it is stainless steel. If the magnet does not stick, you most likely have Stainless Steel. Be sure you aren’t holding a piece of aluminum either, which will be dull and light compared to a heavier and shinier stainless steel.

Where Can You Find Stainless Steel?

Intake systems and low temperature exhaust components are generally made from 304 stainless steel. If you come across a large quantity from a demolition job, tear out, or from construction, you can schedule a pick up easily by using the iScrap App’s container request page. The app can also locate yards near you and prices for 304 stainless steel. See more Scrapping Videos here.

How Do You Know 304 Stainless vs. 316 Stainless?

These are two of the more common types of stainless steel and it is very difficult to tell which is which. Both types of stainless could be marked with a 304 or a 316 stainless steel tag, but without an analyzer it will be  very difficult for you to tell by looking at it. Many scrap yards will have these analyzers and it will make it much easier to tell which type of stainless that you have.

What Are Some Examples of Stainless Steel?

There are so many things in your everyday life that you don’t realize are stainless steel. Here are few to peak your scrapping interests and to make sure that your eyes are wide open while scrapping.

These are just some items that are stainless that you can sell, but we always tell everyone to make sure that some things are worth doing. Making sure that your stainless steel is clean with nothing on it is the most important thing, because contaminants are the worst thing that can happen to your material.
