We are able to supply recyclers that can recycle contaminated solvents / thinners or water from the manufacturing processes involved in producing paints, coatings and printing inks.
The recyclers offer great financial savings by recovering up to 80-90% of dirty solvent / thinners or water, thereby saving 80-90% of the replacement cost as well as reducing the environmental impact caused by the disposing of contaminated product.
The range of recyclers covers the small user [10 litres per day], medium sized user [20 – 100 litres per day] and the large user [200 – 2000 litres per day].
Typical recycle times are around 4 – 6 hours irrespective of batch size, and usually governed by the composition of the product being recycled.
The recyclers range from basic, economy models right up to sophisticated, fully automated processing plants, capable of operating 24 hours / 7 days.
The automated recyclers can form a closed loop in conjunction with the wash equipment
Converters of packaging films, foils and paper will have to comply with approaching government legislation – amendments to the CLEAN AIR ACT
- We can offer a variety of solutions, the most common being:
- Solvent Recovery from the exhaust air system – for full recovery of solvent vapours through using activated carbon – achieving a very high degree of purity that is suitable for future use in printing and lamination processes – thus providing a saving in the purchase of solvents.
- Regenerative Thermal Oxidising wherein the heat produced is captured for and utilised for pre-heating incoming ambient air for the printing press, thus reducing energy consumption costs.
