Introduction To Solvent Recovery Unit
A solvent recovery unit is a device used in industrial processes to recover solvents from waste streams or by-products to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and reduce operating costs. Solvent recovery units work by separating solvents from waste streams using a combination of distillation, condensation, and filtration techniques. The recovered solvent can be reused in the same process or sold as a valuable commodity. The solvent recovery unit can be used in a variety of industries, including printing, paint, pharmaceutical, chemical and electronics.
Advantages Of Solvent Recovery Unit
The solvent recovery unit can significantly reduce the cost of purchasing new solvents because the recovered solvent can be reused in the same process. Over time, this can lead to significant cost savings.
A solvent recovery unit helps reduce the amount of solvent waste generated, which can have environmental benefits by reducing the amount of hazardous waste sent to landfill or incinerator.
A solvent recovery unit can improve the efficiency of industrial processes by reducing the amount of solvent waste generated. This increases productivity, reduces downtime and improves product quality.
A solvent recovery unit can help improve workplace safety by reducing the amount of hazardous waste generated and reducing the risk of spills or accidents.
Applicable Industries Of Solvent Recovery Unit:
In the printing industry, in the pharmaceutical industry, in the automotive industry, in the electronics industry, in the chemical industry, in the paint and coating industry, solvents are used for thinning and cleaning of paints and coatings. Solvent recovery units can recover the solvents used in these processes, reducing the cost of purchasing new solvents and increasing process efficiency.
Solvent Recovery Unit Installation Tutorial
Before starting the solvent recovery unit, ensure that all safety procedures are followed. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves and goggles. Make sure the unit is properly grounded and all electrical connections are secure.
Pour the used solvent into the storage tank of the solvent recovery unit. The solvent recovery unit then automatically pumps the solvent through a filtration system that separates the solvent from impurities and waste.
The distilled solvent then enters the distillation chamber where it is heated and vaporized. The vapor then rises through a series of cooling coils and condenses back into liquid. This distilled solvent is then collected in a clean solvent storage tank.
The purified solvent is then further purified through an activated carbon filter to remove any remaining impurities from the solvent. The final purified solvent is then ready for reuse.
When the solvent recovery unit’s clean solvent reservoir is full, it is time to unload the cleaned solvent. Connect the transfer pump to the clean solvent storage tank to pump the purified solvent to the storage tank for reuse.
Ensure that all safety procedures are followed before shutting down the solvent recovery unit. Turn off all power and disconnect all electrical connections. Cleaning unit, including storage tanks, filters and distillation chambers.
Perform regular maintenance on the solvent recovery unit to keep it functioning properly. Check the filter, clean the still, and check all connections and hoses for leaks or wear. Replace any worn or damaged parts.

Q: What size solvent recovery unit should I choose?
A: The size of the solvent recovery unit you need depends on the amount of solvent that needs to be recovered and recycled. Consult FBL to determine the appropriate size for your specific needs.
Q: How to maintain my solvent recovery unit?
A: Regular maintenance of your solvent recovery unit is very important to ensure its efficient operation. Follow the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions, which include cleaning the unit, checking filters and hoses, and replacing any worn or damaged parts.
Q: How long does it take to recover and recycle the solvent using the solvent recovery unit?
A: The time required to recover and recycle solvent using a solvent recovery unit depends on the volume and type of solvent being recovered, as well as the specific equipment used.
