Different Grades of Heavy Melting Scrap
HMS scrap is widely traded and is the obsolete iron and steel scrap obtained from demolished and dismantled items. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries segregates HMS 1 into three categories:
ISRI 200: Wrought iron or steel scrap 1/4 inch or greater in thickness. All pieces must be smaller than 60*24 inches.
ISRI 201: All scrap should be 1/4 inch or greater in thickness but pieces must be smaller than 36*18 inches.
ISRI 202: Specifications as per ISRI 200 & 201 except pieces must be smaller than 60*18 inches.
The only difference between HMS 1 and HMS 2 is that it does not contain galvanised or blackened steel whereas, HMS 2 does. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries differentiates HMS 2 into four separate categories:
ISRI 203: Wrought iron or steel scrap, black and galvanized, 1⁄8 inch or larger in thickness.
ISRI 204: Same as ISRI 203 except its pieces are smaller than 36*18 inches.
ISRI 205: Same as ISRI 204 except it may contain automotive scrap except for thin gauge material.
ISRI 206: Same as ISRI 205 except its pieces must be smaller than 60*18 inches.
