Introduction:
This book is intended to help in the process of identifying recyclable parts found in most electronics. In particular which components may contain PM’s (Precious Metals) and what types of PM’s may be found. In addition this book will attempt to make suggestions on how to remove and process these components. This book will show pictures of components and devices to help in identifying those items. The first chapter will describe different electronic components that are found in many of today’s electronic devices. The subsequent chapters will describe many of the electronic devices and the sub-assemblies that may be found in them. It is also intended to be used as an ongoing guide that can be updated with unique or unusual items found by people that are in the scrap recycling hobby/business. The final purpose of this book is to help better identify objects that may be worth purchasing for recovery and recycling. This book will show pictures of as well as Tips: • To maximize the value of the recovered materials it is suggested that you recover all metals not just the PM’s. When disassembling any electronic device you will find many valuable metals like copper, aluminum and different forms of steel and iron. These not only can be recycled and cashed in at your local recycling centers but you will help to eliminate these metals and more importantly the plastics, coatings and paints used on them from ending up in landfills and eventually leaching in to our drinking water and soil. • To speed up the recovery process and make it safer to remove components I suggest you buy a Dremel drill craft tool. These drills can be used with cutting and grinding wheels that will make short work of copper windings, plastic connectors and even steel housings. They are also very useful for cutting off stripped or unusual screws that hold many devise together. This will save time and many banged and bruised knuckles and fingers. They can also be used to remove components from PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards) by grinding off the soldered ends rather then trying to de-solder all of them. This is much faster and less toxic (de-soldering creates a lot of toxic fumes) way to remove these parts. Another way to maximize your overall profits is by removing components from PCB’s in a reusable form so that they may be sold in bulk as used components for electronic hobbyist and others. This requires removing these components with minimal damage and lead’s that are long enough for the components to be reused.

Chapter 1: Basic electronic parts.

1.1) Diodes (Rectification, Switching, Regulation and Bridge Diodes)
Type of part: Electronic component Materials: Ceramics, plastics and aluminum (Leads) Scrap value: Only as resale of used electronic parts. PM yield: None Places found: PC’s and other electronics. Found on PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards) Disassembly: Cut or de-solder from mounting. Special notes or instruction: Rectification, Switching and Regulation Diode’s look very similar in shape to resistors and some capacitors. Hint for Identifying: Look for a number on the PCB, next to the part, that starts with a “D” for diode. Rectification, Switching and Regulation Diode First two devices shown in the picture are diodes used for rectification. The third device from the top (red color) is used for switching, The device at the bottom of the picture is a voltage regulation diode

The following is three examples of diode bridges. They can be identified by the four prongs or contacts attached to them.

Scrap value: Little expect for the Tantalum capacitors and maybe for the aluminum in the can (canister) type. However the work involved to recover the aluminum and the amount recovered are not worth the work. They are best saved for resale as used parts. PM yield: None except for Tantalum capacitors. Places found: PC’s and other electronics. Found on PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards) Disassembly: Cut or de-solder from mounting. Warning: Be careful to discharge them especially the large can types before removing.

2.5.1) Platinum and data storage
The need for modern computers to store very large amounts of information has brought a rapid increase in the use of platinum to improve the data storage capacity of hard disks. The first hard disk drive, introduced by IBM in 1957, used fifty disks, each measuring 24 inches in diameter, to store just 5 megabytes of data. Nowadays, PC hard disks are available which can store 125 gigabytes (125,000 megabytes) of data, and capacity is increasing all the time. Manufacturers aim to continually reduce the average number of hard disks in each drive, so technology which can offer denser data storage is eagerly sought after.

2.5.2) Inside a hard disk
A hard disk drive looks and operates much like an old fashioned record player. Information is recorded and retrieved by a magnetic head mounted on a moveable arm, which hovers over a rapidly spinning disk. Each drive contains one or more disks; the disks in desktop PCs are usually made of aluminum, whereas high quality glass is often used for disks in laptop computers. The disks are coated with a cobalt based alloy which has magnetic properties. This magnetic layer stores individual pieces of data, or "bits", in a series of circular tracks. The amount of data which can be recorded on a given surface area depends largely upon the strength of the field generated by the magnetic layer. Adding platinum enhances the magnetic qualities of the cobalt alloy, enabling data to be stored at higher densities and improving access times.

2.5.3) All disks contain platinum
Information storage requirements continue to expand at rapid rates, fuelled by the growing use of computers for video and audio applications. Today, all hard disks contain platinum in their magnetic layers, compared with around 50 per cent in 1997. The proportion of platinum in the magnetic alloy has been increasing steadily over time, from less than 10 per cent five years ago to over 35 per cent, on average, today

2.5.4) Platinum coated hard disks
Type of part: Electronic component Materials: Aluminum or glass core with Platinum or other materials for surface coating (Usually 20 GB or larger drives have Platinum coating) Scrap value: Keep for the Platinum plating or for the Aluminum core PM yield: Minimal recovery, yield unknown Places found: Inside PC hard drives (Aluminum) and Laptops (Glass) Disassembly: Break in to smaller chunks for removing Platinum coating. If it is not Platinum then save whole disk for recycling as Aluminum. Special notes or instruction: The platinum disks will have a silver surface, other disk will be brown in appearance (non-platinum)

7.6.1.1) Light Bulb Structure
Light bulbs have a very simple structure. At the base, they have two metal contacts, which connect to the ends of an electrical circuit. The metal contacts are attached to two stiff wires, which are attached to a thin metal filament. The filament sits in the middle of the bulb, held up by a glass mount. The wires and the filament are housed in a glass bulb, which is filled with an inert gas, such as argon. The filament in a light bulb is made of a long, incredibly thin length of tungsten metal. In a typical 60-watt bulb, the tungsten filament is about 6.5 feet (2 meters) long but only one-hundredth of an inch thick. The tungsten is arranged in a double coil in order to fit it all in a small space. That is, the filament is wound up to make one coil, and then this coil is wound to make a larger coil. In a 60-watt bulb, the coil is less than an inch long.
