A depollution system that 'operatives want to use'
10 December 2004, News release from Rozone Limited
When a vehicle recycling centre decided to invest in new depollution equipment, two factors were paramount …
The equipment had to be user-friendly and operatives would want to use it.
In selecting the Seda solution, SRC Recycling of West Sussex were able to satisfy both requirements.
"These factors were most important to us and we feel we have made the right choice", said Managing Director Mr. Dave Parker.
"We looked at several other makes and have seen a lot of yards with depollution kits which staff dont want to use.
"Seda is user friendly and staff do want to use the rig. We have trained three or four mechanics on how the equipment should be used and in the three months since it was commissioned we are now getting up to speed with the system.
SRC Recycling first saw Seda on the stand of their exclusive UK distributor Rozone at an exhibition in Birmingham and prior to the installation of the equipment changed the structure of their West Sussex premises to create a seven meter wide access to the rig.
They are depolluting 20 vehicles a day on behalf of local authorities, insurance companies, private garages and private individuals.
"We are anticipating another installation to, at least, double these numbers by 2005", said Mr. Parker, whose business was one of the first 12 in the country to obtain a DVLA licence as an authorised treatment facility centre.
"This enables us to issue a certificate to the last owner of a vehicle to verify if has been depolluted and destroyed at an approved ATF centre in line with the new regulations which came into force from November 1", he explained.
He said another benefit of Seda was its compliance with all the latest regulations which, in addition to its user friendliness, was important to working methods.
Added Mr. Parker: "The equipment works well and looks good and we have received first-class back-up from Rozone who ensured a part we required was delivered to us within 24 hours.
"We are learning all the time and advice is freely available".
