Copper is widely used in electrical wires, roofing and pluming and industrial machinery. It’s mainly used in its pure form although alloys of it are made by combining other elements for higher hardness. Most common alloys made are brass and bronze. It is also used in the agricultural sector but in small quantities.
Our copper ingot manufacturing unit is located in Lagos which comprises of smelting, refining and casting process. The company believes in employing advanced technology to extract maximum from melting scrap and passing on the leverage to our customers through high product quality and timely deliver as per their requirements.
Our present production capacity is more than 300 Metric Tons/Month.
Taking the advantage of predefined setup of Pb & Al scrap procurement, we procure copper scrap from different parts of the country. Copper scrap mainly comes in form of electrical wires or industrial machinery. As Nigeria has a huge industrial base in West Africa, scrap is readily available for our disposal. Relationship with local lead and aluminum scrap dealers has also helped us in procuring scrap.
We smelt the copper scrap and through our process obtain a purity of 99.70%. All copper ingots are casted in a cone shape. Dimensions of copper bar would be:
- Length : 1480 mm
- Thickness on One-side : 120 mm
- Thickness on Other Side : 97 mm
- Average weight of each bar : 139 Kgs
We follow best practices for ensuring quality of the end product. Some of the established procedures include:
- In-house team of lab technicians and chemists who run the quality assurance process.
- The team is equipped with latest SPECTROMAXx F version Analytical Instrument of Germany make & NITON XLT 792 KMY HAND HELD ANALYZER
- The SPECTROMAXx enables our chemists and Lab Technicians the accurate analysis of Lead and Aluminum Alloys. The instruments takes advantage of modern CCD Technology combined with the latest generation of readout electronics.
- Percentage of Copper and other elements in the final product is carefully monitored to adhere to the committed percentage levels. A modern laboratory has been set up for the same.
