About Compressors

What Are Compressors From?

Scrap Compressors or also sealed units can be scrapped a for a good price. Usually being similar to electric motor prices, the price of scrap compressors can vary by location, so be sure to contact the scrap metal yards in the area for the current scrap metal prices. If you are a contractor, plumber, electrician, or work in construction you can find a buyer for your scrap metal compressors within minutes on the iScrap App. If you have larger quantities of compressors for scrap, contact your local scrap metal yard and request a scrap metal pick up.

Are Compressors Like Sealed Units?

Compressors are the same as sealed units. They are usually very heavy in weight and are difficult to open. They have an electric motor inside but usually pay less than motors at the yard. Because of the steel casing on the outside you will get a lower price than motors. Also make sure to ask for the current Compressors Scrap Prices, as it may be different for container services.

What Is This Oil Inside Of The Compressor?

The oil that is inside of the compressors are to help cool them down when they are working to help cool an air conditioner, a refrigerator, or another cooling type of device. There are companies all around that will help you drain this oil properly (and often times for free because they can resell or reuse the oil inside). Noe thing that you do not want to do is to pour it down the drain, into the dirt, or into the garbage. That will only hurt the environment…and while you are trying to make money scrapping, no one wants to hurt the area around them.

Where Do You Get Rid Of Compressors?

If you have the ability to drop off the units at the locations, give your scrap yard a call before getting there to get the current price of scrap compressors. Start making more money on your scrap metal compressors and get other current scrap metal prices with the iScrap App. See more Scrapping Videos here.
