SEDA MDS6 Container - depollution in a box!

SEDA MDS6 container
Everything you could want to de-pollute ELVs in a handy roll on/off container. The insert shows their tank platform that fits neatly into the container for transport.
If you need a mobile answer to de-pollution, then have you seen this? The SEDA MDS6 container has everything you need for complete and efficient de-polluting of End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) where a mobile system is required.

The SEDA MDS6 is a roll on/off container in which a complete drainage system is integrated and comes with a hydraulic mechanism for easy opening. The container door functions like a roof when opened and provides weather protection. A static vehicle ramp with a capacity of up to 4 tons is installed in the container as well as integrated catchment trays in the floor and important working aids like a workbench, tool storage cabinet, etc.

The de-pollution system comes as standard with double diaphragm pumps for petrol, diesel, waste oil, coolant and washer fluid in a protective housing, a vacuum reservoir for brake fluid, control panel, an ATEX certified TankDrillingMachine, two fuel quality controls, a swing arm for the TankDrillingMachine and one with a waste oil funnel, an SOG², 4 hose reels (for coolant, washer fluid, air pressure and a 230V power supply etc.

The MDS6 container - like all SEDA systems - can be combined with their mobile tank platform TPF5. SEDA tell us that this system has been built to the highest standards including GS, CE and ATEX certification. Three 900 litre tanks (petrol, diesel and waste oil) and two 750 litre tanks for washer and coolant fluid alongside further accessories makes the TPF5 the most convenient storage tank platform on the market.

You can find out more about the SEDA MDS6 Container here, and the TPF5 TankPlatform here. Information about any of SEDA’s additional equipment or solution is available their main website or email them here.
