Solvent recovery

Solvents eare used in many different activities for cleaning and degreasing. Distillation units allow the used solvents to be recovered and re-used. By means of the simple distillation principle, the contaminated solvent is separated from resins, pigments, paints, oils, etc. The distillation residues settle on the bottom of the vessel (foil bag) and can be easily removed on completion of the distillation process. The cleaned solvent is collected in containers and can be re-used.

Function principle:

The contaminated solvent is heated in a vessel made of V2A, where it evaporates.
Even heating is ensured by a jacket containing thermal oil which is heated by one or more heating elements.
The distillation and cooling process is steered by a thermostat and an electric timer.
The solvent vapours pass through a collection pipe to the cooler, where they condense.
The distillate is collected in a canister and is immediately available for re-use.

Operation:

The distillation cycle runs completely automatically. The only operating steps required are filling the unit and subsequent removal of the residues

Safety:

The apparatus operates under atmospheric pressure. In the event of any temperature rise through failure of the cooling system or the control thermostat, the distillation process is immediately interrupted.
Test certificates of PTB Braunschweig, TÜV Munich, TÜV Vienna and other European certification bodies guarantee a high technical standard.

Efficiency:

Depending on the level of contamination, up to 97% of the solvent can be recovered.

Costs:

A favourable price and low operating costs ensure a rapid return on your investment.

Areas of use:

Mechanical, electronic, chemical, pharmaceutical sectors, firms using paints, varnishes, resins and plastics, leather and furniture industry, printing trades.
