02/2008 - A crushing success!

A BOGE SD20-RM750 has been installed into a brand new state-of-the-art vehicle disposal facility in West Yorkshire responsible for environmentally disposing of up to 400 vehicles per week! A minimal carbon footprint, the free five year warranty gift and ongoing service support were all factors in Rota West Yorkshire selecting the BOGE compressor for this important new development.

Rota West Yorkshire is responsible for the recovery and disposal of vehicles for the West Yorkshire Police as well as working closely with the Highway Authority, Kirklees, Calderdale and Leeds City Councils.
An ever increasing requirement to dispose of anywhere between, 300 to 400 vehicles per week created the need for Rota West Yorkshire, to develop a new centre able to environmentally disposed of such a number of vehicles.

After consultation with Leeds City Council and the Environmental Agency, Rota West Yorkshire recently built this new facility. Compressed air is at the heart of the whole operation. It is used to run the air tools which strip the vehicles - an important stage to ensure the environmental disposal of all components - to operating the system which finally crushes the vehicles.
Choosing a reliable compressor was therefore a vital decision for John Green, the Chairman of Rota West Yorkshire;
"We were approached by a number of companies but BOGE offered the best overall package and really understood our needs. Not only did we feel confident with the BOGE compressor but there was an entire local service and support package available. The compressor also came with a free five year warranty which gave us additional peace of mind in the selection process."

The BOGE SD20-RM750 offers the user a complete and compact compressed air centre. An integral refrigerant dryer and screw compressor are neatly mounted on a horizontal compressed air receive which keeps the space requirement to a minimum.
The SD series forms part of the established and award winning BOGE S Series screw compressor product range. The innovatively designed S Series clean modern lines and simple uncluttered layout set a standard some years ago that has since been imitated but not surpassed.

Now up and running, the BOGE SD20-RM720 is assisting Rota West Yorkshire in the day-to-day efficient and environmental disposal of vehicles in the region.
