Hi Everyone!

I am currently working on a job that requires downgrading 3 no. UPS systems 500KVA to 350KVA systems. We have today removed the old 500KVA systems that included 3 no. transformer panels. Each panel has two transformers inside, one weighing 900kg and the second 1250kg.
What is the best route to go down regards scrapping. Unfortunalty i do not have a yard large enough to store all the panels and certainly do not have the plant in my yard to strip them easily. What sort of prices would i be looking for, for a scrap dealer to collect. Collection would include the UPS panle itself. We are reusing the battery and racks.

I look forward to your ideas/recommendations

Get an electrical recycler to tender for them if they are still working.

You never know, the original joker could still be bashing away with a hammer and chisel.

If it’s for a UPS the transformers will be cast resin. Tough as old boots.

I'm at a loss why they would need to change the transformers full stop!! A 350 KVA UPS system will work just as well through transformers rated at 500 KVA... lol!!
