Refrigerator recycling plant
The modern technology of this recycling plant allows for the reuse of almost 95% of all materials from a refrigerator as raw materials for new products. The throughput rates are up to 60 devices per hour.
Initially, all reusable parts, such as cables and glass inserts, are removed.
Then, the harmful coolants and the compressor oil are extracted with suction tools and the compressors are dismantled from the scrap refrigerators.
After that, the patented cross-flow cutting tool (CFC, German: QZ) processes the refrigerators in an insulated system. The CFC is almost completely recycled. The rotating chains of the machine disintegrate the individual fractions completely. The crushed polyurethane foam is sieved and freed from CFC residues. Finally, the polluting gas is cooled and liquefied, and then collected in special containers.
Downstream of the cross flow cutting tool, iron, other metals and plastics are separated from each other in automatic processes. During this, high purities of ferrous and nonferrous materials are achieved. Once cleanly separated, the products can still generate high revenues even in difficult market conditions.
