Getting the right weights Copper Cylinder Scrap

Getting the correct weights for copper cylinders aka hot water tanks can sometimes take a bit of guess work especially when they have lots of limescale inside, the foam insulation is usually 1-2 kgs depending on the size of the tank, as you see in the photos below we opened this copper tank as it was unusually heavy for a tank this size, my guess was 10kgs of limescale to a customer this seemed like a big deduction in weight so it made sense to remove the limescale there and then, the 2 piles of limescale that were removed from this tank actually weighed 13kgs, With the high prices of copper at the moment this could of worked out to be some pretty expensive but useless limescale.

Advice on getting best copper prices

 Here's a common mistake many customers make when dropping of their scrap copper, what they have done as you can see in the photo is wrapped the clean copper tube in tape to make it easier to handle and transport, at the same time they have unknowingly devalued the price of the copper as it is now classed as dirty copper due to the contamination of the tape, clean copper has to be 100 percent clean no paint, no plastic and no solder, It's can be a time consuming job removing all the tape from many bundles of clean copper so we advise to not put tape on the clean copper pipes in the first place, that way you can get the best prices for your copper.
