As a group, VPG processes and recycles over 150,000 units every year. This equipment includes distribution transformers, reclosers, regulators, capacitors, potential transformers, current transformers, etc.
The transformer recycling process is fine-tuned on a regular basis at VPG. We are consistently looking for new product streams for transformer components that both add value and decrease landfill deposits. VPG currently fully recycles approximately 98% of every transformer that is processed.
Depending on global demand and commodity pricing at the time of processing will determine how each unit is broken down for consumption. VPG has the capability to shear windings, bake windings, and chop windings to maximize value that can be passed on to our customers.
