For over a quarter a century now, Alnor Scrap Wire Industries has been involved in recycling and adding value to scrap electrical wires for sale in Canada and beyond. Copper, which is the main material for electrical wires, has been used in electricity transmission since the invention of the telegraph and the electromagnet in the early 1820s. The material further increased its demand in 1876 after the telephone was invented. Today, it is widely used in electronics’ circuitry, power generation, and transmission as well as in various telecommunication platforms. The growing need for electronic wiring and telecommunication networking is quickly increasing the demand for copper and its related alloys, hence the need for an affordable and supply channel.
While the pricing for copper changes constantly depending in the market , Alnor Scrap Wire seeks to provide an affordable supply channel to meet customer’s needs. We use modern techniques in our wire recycling to separate, sort and assemble cables depending on the required form. Solid wire mainly consists of strands of copper wire which could be either naked or surrounded with an insulator for safety. Single-strand conductors are typically used as magnet wires in transformers and motors. They are rigid and often used for permanent installations. Stranded wires normally constitute of a group of wires twisted or braided together. The product is a flexible cable that is offers higher flexibility than that of single strands. Copper wire stranding helps improve the cable life in applications that involve vibration. Our electrical cable grinding recovery system allows us to achieve a pure segregated material by grinding cables into fine homogenous sizes. It is an ideal method for separating aluminium, copper and other metals on cables.
Our wire recycling processes improve the life of previously used copper wires by analyzing and minimizing the weaknesses of scrap wire. We remove burned pieces and re-weave deformed strands to come up with fully operational cables for specialist applications. We buy scrap wires at good prices and offer pick-up services for both deliveries and purchases.
