Drapers Invest In New Vehicle Depollution Equipment

Some of our more recent investment on our three acre site in Raven Street here in Hull, has been focussed on installation of leading vehicle depollution and fuel recovery equipment. This is for end of life vehicles which is an important part of our recycling process.

Our investment in advanced Vehicle Depollution Equipment reflects our commitment to protecting the environment.

Our Vehicle Depollution System includes a Fuel Tank Drill for draining diesel and petrol from metal or plastic tanks.

A unique vapour removal system called a Fuel Scavenger vents dangerous and explosive petrol vapour out of our depollution bay.

A VapourSafe Storage System then creates a sealed vapour transfer system that provides us with a safe working environment.
