Prepared Iron / HMS
Prepared Iron scrap is also referred to as “Heavy Melt Steel”, (HMS). It gets this name as it can be put directly into the steel mill blast furnaces without having to make any modifications to it. Prepared iron is single dimensional steel that is in 3-foot sections or smaller. HMS differs from clean sheet iron because it has to be three feet or smaller in length, be single dimensional and must be at least ¼ inch in thickness.

Steel scrap chips are commonly found in metal fabricating shops and are a by-product of metal lathes. Steel chips are commonly coated with either oil, or water based solutions depending on the type f machine shop that they are coming out of.
