Solvent Distillation Equipment and Solvent Recycling Machines
Solvent recycling equipment includes a range of machinery that separates reusable solvent from contaminants created during various production and cleaning processes. These machines work through a process of distillation, enabling solvents to be recovered in a safe and highly efficient manner, while significantly reducing your hazardous waste disposal costs.
Once dirty solvent enters into the recycling equipment, it is heated until it is vaporized. The vapor then condenses and is collected to be reused in the same manner as virgin solvent. The remaining contaminants can then be more easily disposed of and will require considerably fewer resources for handling, storage, and removal. What would have originally been solvent waste is now recycled, clean, usable, and ready to enter your process.
The Benefits Of Solvent Recycling Equipment
When manufacturers and industrial service providers make the decision to utilize solvent recycling equipment, they gain a number of advantages at multiple points in their process.
Solvent distillation equipment saves cost at the front end by reducing the amount of virgin solvent required on a regular basis. It's possible to reclaim 90 to 95 percent of reusable solvent by implementing a solvent recycling machine that's properly integrated into your production line.
The amount of hazardous waste created is significantly reduced requiring less storage and lowering reporting paperwork for eventual disposal. Not only does this save a considerable amount of cost for virtually any company using acetone, alcohol, and other chemical solvent, it's simply good practice for reducing the environmental impact of essential operations.
Thanks to the versatility of solvent recycler equipment, and NexGen Enviro's ability to modify and customize units to specific performance requirements, in-house solvent recycling is a capability that's possible for just about any company in any industry, including: Medical, Defense, Aerospace, Agriculture, Electronics, Woodworking, Shipbuilding, Printing, Painting & Coating…and many others.
Why Source Your Solvent Recycling Equipment From NexGen Enviro Systems?
NexGen Enviro has been providing solvent recovery and recycling solutions for almost thirty years. In that time, we've served thousands of customers and have developed a range of equipment that accommodates many different requirements.
There are numerous features available on our solvent recyclers, large and small. It's possible to integrate our equipment into your factory programming. We can facilitate streamlined connections into your process in a way that suits your current level of automation.
Vacuum-assisted distillation is another option. This enhancement makes it possible to lower the boiling point of the mixture and safely recover solvent that would ordinarily require higher temperatures for the recovery process. For processes that use chemical products with certain heat limitations, this option also makes it easier to recover both the solvent and the product at a lower temperature.
Many safety features are incorporated into all of our solvent recycling machinery. The PLC provides clear error codes, making it easy to identify and address any issues so that you avoid downtime. Automatic shutdown occurs when anything is amiss during processing. Controlled pressure release valves are incorporated into process tanks to prevent excess pressure build-up, which eliminates subsequent hazards. These are just a few of the redundant fail-safes we incorporate into our machinery.
All of our equipment is UL 2208 and ATEX II 2G explosion-proof listed and is built to be safe enough to operate in the average manufacturing/production facility with no special isolation or safety modifications required.
Following the initial install and programming, solvent recycling is essentially a push-button operation. There is no extensive or complicated training required for operations.
