So you have a small blog 4 cylinder engine you just pulled out and replaced. Or even better, you just got a brand new car for the first time since the 1990’s and you need to scrap that old rotary engine you’ve had forever. Not a problem, sell it online? No, takes too long, tear it apart and sell parts individual? No, takes too long and have to deal with too many people who really just need a brand new part but refuse to buy them. So just scrap it right, sure.. you get one price for everything..today. Dealing with just one person. Scrapping an engine has been around forever, either scrapping to a yard, or to a tinkerer who is willing to take the time to get it fixed and sold.
The process of recovering the aluminium from scrap vehicles begins with an engine crusher. An Engine Crusher can break between 3 and 5 tons an hour, every hour – that’s up to 30 engines – enabling the different components to be separated ready for the next stages of recovery and recycling. Although the crushing force is 120 tons, the machines are very small, much like the engines themselves. Operated by electricity or diesel, the engine crusher is also adept at handling electric motors and alloy wheels.
An engine crusher will crush engines so that their different component parts can be separated for recycling. This is a compact, tough and powerful machine able to demolish engines at 3 – 5 tons per hour. Engine crushers can withstand the high forces needed to crush engines and separate valuable components. They generally operate with a 120 ton crushing force so it can demolish an engine in just 2 minutes and reduce it to small particles, which means that the aluminium is easily separated from the steel. The machines also have conveyors for loading and removal for efficiency, with magnets to separate different ferrous and no ferrous metals.
So load your block into your truck, drive it down and get paid…quick!
