Fridge recycling innovation from SEDA

Archiv – Product News | Dismantling machinery specialist SEDA has unveiled the SEDA-AFR for the quick and effective removal of virtually all compressor oil and potentially harmful Freon gases from scrapped refrigerator compressors.

After drainage, the compressors can be shredded or sent for further processing without risk to the environment, says the Austrian company.
Traditional methods of oil and Freon gas removal rely on pliers clamped to the copper pipes of the compressor. However, use of pliers can leak harmful Freon gases into the atmosphere; at the same time, this approach does not remove all of the oil from the compressors, the company claims. With the SEDA-AFR, the compressor is automatically clamped in place and then drilled at the deepest point to remove the oil and R600a or R134a Freon gas simultaneously.
The SEDA-AFR is designed as a stand-alone unit or can easily be incorporated into automated refrigerator recycling systems.
Other features of the fully-automated appliance include: a fast, powerful drilling action; a large drill chamber for less maintenance and downtime; a multi-function display; an automated maintenance cycle; and robust industrial-strength design.
