Compressors & Scrapping
Compressors and other sealed units are fairly profitable when it comes to scrapping. Many of the prices for scrapping compressors fall into the same demographic as scrapping electric motors.
Most of the scraps are recycled and sold by construction workers, electricians, plumbers, and contractors. If you happen to have a large quantity of compressors, contacting us beforehand may be necessary.
Handling Sealed Units
Compressors are very much like sealed units. They are difficult to open and are normally very heavy with an electric motor inside its casing. Unfortunately, the motors go for less than the price reserved for larger motors. This is mainly due to the steel casing that compressors utilize to keep the inner workings safe.
Handling the Oil Inside Compressors
Compressors oftentimes have oil inside to keep their inner workings cool as they perform their job. Such products that utilize oil for cooling are refrigerators, air conditioners, and other devices that rely on cooling property.
Customers should empty all items being scrapped of all fluids and oil. When doing so, the last thing you would want to do is to drain the oil into the garbage, into the dirt, or down the drain. This is mainly due to the oil's negative impact on the environment and the fact that scrappers do not want to damage the area around them.
