Vortex designs and manufactures equipment for de-pollution end of life vehicles; the equipment has evolved from the earliest days of the UK ELV Directive, when we were asked by Sims Metals to manufacture a system to remove fuels from scrap cars, today that business has grown to cover a full range of specialist vehicle de-pollution tools and equipment and all associated products for vehicle salvage operators, it now includes garage equipment, tools, tanks and process equipment. We manufacture in Nottingham for the UK and European market and in Denver Colorado for the North American market.
Our equipment is robust, easy to use and reliable, our designs make the tools operator friendly and reduce maintenance, thereby increasing productivity, as we make the products ourselves we can very easily change things to suit the customers circumstances.
Potential customers have a variety of issues that they face when deciding what they want from and ELV de-pollution station, it may be limited space, it could be related to the number of vehicles they want to process, or details down to potential spill containment, that is why Vortex has developed equipment for every possibility and it is what really differentiates us from our competitors, we are engineers first and foremost and what our customers like is the bespoke engineering they get with our system, the well thought out designs that means our equipment just keeps on working efficiently day in day out in a very tough environment.
Vortex were the first company in the industry to create and deliver a full two or three day training course for the industry covering all aspects of ELV de-pollution procedures, products, health and safety and environmental compliance. This can be accessed by anyone in the industry regardless of what equipment they are using. Vortex also offers its experience when consulting on process systems for the industry, talk to us about your needs and you will see the benefit we can offer.
The Vortex De-pollution System is designed to suit every type of de-pollution requirement from high throughput scrap yards and self-pull parts companies to low volume parts salvage operations processing a couple of cars a day.
We have designed systems to work with lifts or vehicle stands with products to de-pollute every aspect of a vehicle, to make you compliant with environmental agencies requirements or just to do the job in a safer, cleaner and more efficient way. Every one of our tools has been engineered with the operator in mind, from efficient placement of tooling and ergonomic design to the use of ATEX/UL explosive zone rated equipment throughout our range.
Our equipment comes in various guises to suit different budgets and volumes of vehicles to be processed; we can supply everything from a gravity oil drainer to full pumped systems with everything in between.
What you see on this website covers the standard range of products, but being an engineering company we are regularly asked to make something a little different as not all companies want the same, this bespoke approach means you can mix and match to suit your businesses needs without breaking the bank.
