What Are New Copper Tubes?

Copper tubes are easy to come by as they can be found in central heating systems, but for a scrap copper tube to be classified as “new” it needs to be clean and not be contaminated by any paint, solder or fittings.

New copper tubes are copper pipes that are typically come in 2 meter lengths and diamaters of 10mm, 15mm, 22mm.

Copper tubes are typically used for central heating and water systems in homes and business.

What's The Current Scrap Price For New Copper Tube?

The reason why new copper tubes are valued more than regular copper tubes is due to their quality and purity along with the melting temperatures.

The melting point of copper is approximately 1084°c and this could be negatively impacted by copper that has been contaminated by substances with filler metals such as solder or metal fittings with a higher melting point.

Due to this, it’s important to make sure that your “new” copper tubes are free of any impurities before going on to sell them.

New copper tube prices frequently fluctuate in line with other copper grades and are impacted by the following factors:

  • Weight
  • Condition
  • Changes in supply and demand

Fortunately, new copper tube is usually highly sought after by UK scrap yards.
