About Aluminum Transformers

Let’s Learn About Aluminum Transformers

Scrapping Aluminum Transformers can be green for the environment and for your pocket. Find a scrap yard in the area and collect your scrap metal to get paid for it. Aluminum transformers can be of various sizes and found in many places so the Aluminum Transformers Scrap Prices can be different. Often times they will have a steel core in the center and surrounded by aluminum wiring and casing.

These transformers can look very similar to copper ones, and the only way to really know if they are aluminum is by scratching them with a file or something else that can cut into the middle of the wiring. You will see a white color and this will show you that they are aluminum and not copper.

Are All Transformers The Same? No!

Separate your aluminum transformers from copper transformers to make the most money on your scrap metal. You can identify Aluminum Transformers from copper ones by filing the wires on the inside. Sometimes they may look copper-color on the outside, but it could be a wire insulation or coating to protect it from corrosion. Be sure to check and if you aren’t sure ask your scrap yard to help you.

Big And Heavy Transformers? Contact Your Local Yard!

If you have a large quantity of scrap metal or aluminum transformers, you can use the iScrap App to request a scrap metal pick or container service to your job site. If you are in construction, demolition, or renovation work, it is perfect to get rid of all your scrap metal. Find a scrap yard through the iScrap App and contact them for today’s scrap metal prices. See more Scrapping Videos here. Most scrap yards will have trucks or flatbeds that will be able to get those transformers back to their yards safely because they will have enough load bearing inside of the truck to carry them.
