article article Metal processing is the process of converting raw materials into a finished product, usually for use in a metal-making process.
Most of us have heard of it, but not many know it is used in metalworking.
A few years ago, I stumbled across a post on Metalworker.com that explained the process in detail.
I was so intrigued by this article that I decided to investigate further.
The article also mentioned that most of the metals in the metal making process are found in the world’s oceans, and the process involves “mineral mining” and “minerals extraction”.
What I found surprised me, because there was no mention of any of the processes mentioned on the article.
Why was this?
I had no idea.
I asked my husband, who is an experienced metalworker, to investigate the matter.
He was also intrigued by the article, so we discussed the matter in detail over email.
We contacted several metal processing companies in the US, and they confirmed that the process was indeed happening, although not with the metal being mined in the article: “Most metal processing facilities are not utilizing metal mining to create the metal products we know and love,” said one representative.
It is important to note that many metals can be extracted through other processes. “
The majority of the materials used in these industries are sourced from mineral sources.
It is important to note that many metals can be extracted through other processes.
These include the use of electrolysis, precipitation and distillation, and other processes involving metal oxides.
However, these processes require a large amount of metal, and this is not always the case.”
The representative also added that “most metal processing plants are using less toxic, and more sustainable processes, which are environmentally friendly, and not in competition with one another”.
“The vast majority of people involved in the processing of these metals do not have to have a high level of expertise in metals mining to perform the process,” the representative continued.
