|Distillation equipment is used for solvent recovery, to close loop your waste streams for
ink, solvent, paint, or most any wash solution. Distillation
equipment is available for
manual operation and for automatic operation of solvent recovery.
With distillation equipment, your solvent waste stream
is reduced and the clean solvent is returned for your re-use. Manual
solvent distillation machines can distill to 95% to 98% of the waste and automatic
solvent distillation machines can distill near 100% of the waste.
Solvent Distillation equipment designed with mixing blades can mix the waste
solvent during the solvent recovery process, so that the
discharge of the distillation system is a powder or a flake. Without the
mixing blades, the solvent distillation units would reduce the waste to a thick syrup or paste.
you want your solvent recovery process to distill to a powder or a flake, often the result is that the discharge can be disposed
of as a non-hazardous material. Obviously, if your distillation still
bottom waste is a thick
syrup, you may have to dispose of it as a hazardous material. Only the dry waste can
pass the T.C.L.P. tests required by the Environmental Protection Agency.
|For solvent distillation / solvent recovery, vacuum plants can be attached to distill
the solvent while under a vacuum.
Using vacuum solvent distillation, the boiling point of the solvent is lowered, decreasing the
temperature necessary for distillation and also avoiding possible detriment
to certain solvents.
