LPG recovery
Crow LPG removal

The only commercial LPG unit on the market, this unit first drains down the LPG tank by either flaming off the LPG or transferring it to a storage bottle. The tank is then purged with inert gas so that the tank can then be left open to atmosphere before sending for crushing. The unit can also be used to drain Propane and Butane bottles.

SEDA LPG Recovery CLASS

SEDA LPG Recovery CLASS

SEDA’s LPG Recovery System CLASS is the easiest way to remove and store LPG and neutralize LPG tanks from End-of-Live Vehicles (ELV) automatically.
This innovative system can be used for transferring and neutralizing LPG tanks. It pumps the LPG into a separate storage tank and the burner burns off the remaining unusable gas automatically. When this is done the device refills the gas tank with nitrogen and neutralizes the tanks instantly. An integrated pressure indicator (SPS control system) as well as a display and an on/off swithch guarantees safety and ease of use of this SEDA device.
The SEDA LPG Recovery System CLASS helps you to work with LPG in a very professional way!
The key aspect of this device is its automatic function. After starting the CLASS all processes run self-controlled. This simplifies the work-flow and avoid mistakes. The SEDA LPG Recovery System ECO is an alternative solution for the Liquefied Petroleum Gas. Eco is a small mobile transfer station with an integrated 65 liter tank, powered by compressed air.
General function:
1. Pump liquid gas into separate storage tank
2. Combust remaining gaseous gas with burner
3. Neutralize tank with nitrogen

SEDA LPG Recovery CLASS plus

SEDA LPG Recovery CLASS plus

SEDA developed a variant of LPG Class especially for LPG storage tanks.
Due to increasing demands SEDA invented, based on the LPG Class, the all new LPG CLASS PLUS. It absorbs the LPG from car tanks and passes it directly into storage tanks. The transfer between a tundish is not necessary anymore. The remaining gaseous content will be burnt by a torch. To avoid any risk of ignition the car tank is then purged with nitrogen which neutralizes the unit. The integrated PLC control system is responsible for the full automatic sequence of all processes.
