The Solvent Recycling Advantage
Waste solvent recycling with one of our solvent distillation systems provides many benefits, such as:
- Reduced costs for new solvent purchasing and waste solvent disposal:
Using solvent can be a costly proposition and the price is only heading upwards. Many companies make the problem worse by disposing of their solvents off-site. Rather than hauling used solvents off and purchasing another batch, it makes financial sense to consider recycling used solvents with a solvent distillation system. You won’t make as many purchases and will eliminate a large chunk of your waste disposal costs.
- Reduced EPA paperwork and fees:
Recycling with a solvent distillation system can save you headaches as well as money. Solvent distillation systems are generally exempt from regulation. The systems are not classified as a hazardous waste generator, which requires a permit and fees. The recycled solvent is also not classified as hazardous by the EPA, which treats it as if it were brand new. While the system will leave some material that’s subject to regulation, the burden on your business will be greatly reduced.
- Reduced onsite hazardous waste storage:
If solvents are not recycled, they are classified as hazardous waste and subject to more rigorous government regulation which impacts storage issues. Hauling solvents offsite can be costly while keeping it onsite will lead to increased regulation such as requiring storage in proper containers. Solvent distillation systems eliminate waste and leave you with a reusable product cutting down greatly on storage problems.
- Reduced labor costs from processing, storing and transporting solvent wastes:
If you are dealing with hazardous solvents, you’re going to be paying out every step of the way. You have to make sure more staff members are well trained in understanding regulations and making sure waste is being processed correctly. Employees have to be able to identify what is hazardous. They have to learn how to store hazardous waste properly and make sure storage containers and practices comply with EPA and other agency regulations. This training and compliance costs will add extra hours to your employees’ work day, particularly if you’re handling larger amounts of waste. If you choose not to recycle, you’ll be on the hook for increasing amounts of storage costs or you’ll have to pay more often to have the hazardous solvent carted away. Solvent distillation systems are an effective way to cut down on all of these costs.
- Reduced environmental impact through solvent recovery:
Solvent distillation systems don’t just save you money, they can also help save the planet. Cutting down on the volume of hazardous waste reduces the chance of environmental harm on your site while eliminating the need to haul away solvents. This reduces the safety risk to surrounding areas. Recycling also means that there is less need to purchase more solvent, which puts also puts less hazardous material out there.
The Automatic Washing Advantage
Container washing with our automated high-pressure washing technology provides many benefits, including:
- Increased safety as the washing cycle is completely performed in a closed loop while the operator works in a safe environment:
Our automatic washing systems don’t require operators to constantly be bothered with too many tasks. They’re safe and comply with regulatory guidelines and they don’t need daily maintenance either. They’re automated and designed to be set up so that the operator can walk away once the unit has started the job.
- Increased speed because high-pressure washing technology means shorter washing times:
We have machines that are fast and powerful. Your business will be more efficient because you’ll be able to process your cleaning job quickly. We’re also equipped to meet your needs, whatever the volume of material you work with.
- Increased economy with one operator taking care of the whole washing process:
The automation does most of the work and we can customize the product to fit your requirements and integrate with our solvent recyclers and water recovery systems. The operator just has to program in information and then walk away.
- Increased quality from machines yielding consistent cleaning results:
You’ll be happy with the results of your job. Our cleaning system gives you a state of the art design and they’re made to fit what’s right for your business. We can provide you with units that have multiple formats and sizes depending on how big your job is.
- Increased ecological gains from washers using relatively less solvent or water:
Using a high-pressure washer will minimize the amount of waste generated or cleaning agent needed for your job. Our automatic washers are extremely effective at handling difficult areas to clean also lowering the amount of waste generated.
