We would like to thank Watson Shoes for their enthusiastic remark on our recycler.

“We are doing excellently, what a brilliant machine, we have just had the recycled solution tested, the fingerprints were identical, so we should save money here.”

Want to know more? Solvent Recycling in a nutshell:

 

Solvent recycling is a process whereby contaminated solvents are purified back to their original state. The solvent is extracted from a distillation tank which heats and causes the solvent to evaporate from the solute once it has reached a specified temperature, the solvent vapour is then channelled through a condenser which cools and condenses the vapour into a liquid state from here the liquid is stored in a clean suitable container leaving behind the greatly reduced waste matter which can be disposed of in a safe and controllable manner.

 

Interesting benefits and advantages of recycling solvent onsite:

 

  • Reduce the volume of hazardous waste which reduces the environmental impact.
  • The residual contaminant remaining after recycling can be in the form of a concentrated liquid- sludge, a semi-solid “cake”, or a dry powder.
  • Reduce the cost of solvent purchases, disposal of contaminated solvent and storage of dirty solvent, and the savings can potentially pay for the equipment in 6 – 12 months.
  • Solvents are capable of being recycled indefinitely.
  • Recycling solvent is helpful during times when there is a shortage of low-cost virgin solvents in the country.
  • There are various sizes and capacities of Solvent Recyclers to accommodate your company’s exact needs, including the availability of models that meet very strict EU ATEX regulations for processing hazardous and flammable chemicals.
