Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Salvage Kit.

Salvage kits are used to attain crafting materials and upgrade components from salvageable items. The item is always destroyed in the process. Salvage kits can be acquired from various sources, the most common being merchants and karma merchants. Most have 25 uses before they are consumed. The Mystic Salvage Kit allows players to save room in their inventory by providing 250 uses for a single kit. The PvP Salvage Kit was used specifically for salvaging PvP items, it can't be used on the regular items and regular salvage kits cannot be used on such items. The Copper-Fed Salvage-o-Matic and Silver-Fed Salvage-o-Matic are the only salvage kits that have unlimited charges but directly consume currency for each use. All kits are account bound.
