Cross-flow shredder is key for fridge processing

Andritz MeWa has completed the opening of a refrigerator recycling plant at AO Recycling in Telford.

The 75,000sq ft plant is designed to recycle around 700,000 fridges a year – one-fifth of all those disposed of annually in the UK.

Key equipment supplied by Andritz is the QZ 2500 cross-flow shredder for fast, careful and environmentally friendly disintegration of e-scrap and refrigerators.

After being shredded by the QZ, valuable materials such as aluminium, copper, iron and plastics are removed by separation technology and supplied ready for sale.

Environmentally harmful gases contained in the cooling liquids and insulation of refrigerators are removed by suction and then collected.
