Refrigerator Treatment and Resource Recycling System
Recycle refrigeration devices with this large scale recycling system
This recycling system for refrigeration devices features a shredder, a crusher, a cyclone separation unit for PUR foam, magnetic separation unit for iron, an eddy-current separation unit for extracting aluminium and copper from plastic and an exhaust air decontamination system.
Before the refrigerators are broken up, the loose inner parts are taken out (this includes glass, drawers and racks etc). This is followed by disposal of the oil (CFC), this is done with the refrigerant suction system.
After removing the compressor, the refrigerator is automatically moved to the fridge recycling system. The refrigerators are automatically moved by hydraulic lifting and / or belt conveyor to the cutting unit of the twin shaft primary shredder. They are then broken into small and long shaped pieces.
The recyclable material, aluminium, copper, iron, plastic and PUR foam are separated:
- The shredded pieces of PUR foam are separated by cyclone separator and are moved into PUR foam crusher to downsize (ideal for storage).
- Pieces of iron are taken out through a magnetic separation belt.
- The eddy-current separator removes the residual aluminium / copper from the plastic.
- The CFC / pentane / air mixture from the shredder and crusher is cooled and frozen, and subsequently condensed and bottled.
