Recycling Plants

Refrigerator Recycling Plants

Our refrigerator recycling plants are high performance, heavy duty systems designed for recycling of refrigerators with compressors removed.  These systems produce high purity metal fractions and separate plastic and foam. Our advanced, high impact vertical shredder design developed by our in house R&D department produces clean, dense steel fractions which are ideal for transportation.

A typical refrigerator recycling plant would include the following components:

• Infeed Conveyor Belt or Hydraulic Loading Bin – easy and even feeding of the refrigerators to the system
• Twin Shaft Primary Shredder – Shears the refrigerators into strips 
• Conveyor Belt – transports the shredded refrigerators to the vertical shredder
• Vertical Shredder – high impact grinding of the shred for size reduction, separation, cleaning and densification of the various fractions
• Conveyor Belt – transports the shredded fractions from the vertical shredder
• Overbelt Magnet – separation of ferrous metals
• Eddy Current Separator – separation of non-ferrous metals
• Central De-dusting Unit – removes dust and fines from the system and filters the air before returning it to atmosphere
• Control Panel

A typical refrigerator recycling plant would be configured as shown below.

The correct combination and sizing of the above listed equipment will provide a reliable, efficient refrigerator recycling system that will produce high quality products ideal for sale, or for use in further processing equipment. 


Prior to delivery from our facility, all our refrigerator recycling plants are set up and tested under "real world" conditions to ensure the plant capacity and quality of the finished products are guaranteed. Customers are welcomed and encouraged to attend these trials to see their plant in operation, receive training on the operation and maintenance of their system, and to see similar equipment in build.
