COMPACT distiller cleans solvent - Recycling plant for flammable solvents

COMPACT OFRU distiller for recycling of solvents (solvent reclaimer)

COMPACT OFRU distiller for recycling of solvents (solvent reclaimer)

Babenhausen (Hesse), Germany, 07.05.2013 – With the solvent by distillation COMPACT OFRU Recycling can recycle flammable industrial solvent. The COMPACT distiller is in conjunction with a vacuum unit to a vacuum distillation unit and purifies by vacuum distillation method contaminated solvents. Solvents may come from different production processes, for example of the coating parts, parts cleaning, painting, or by use of paints, adhesives or sealants.

The dirty solvent often stands ready in 200-Litre barrels. These are connected by a hose or pipe connection to the distillation apparatus. The filling by vacuum and the processing is done completely automatically. Depending on the type of solvent and its degree of waste contamination a distillation speed of approximately 10-25 liters per hour is achieved.

An ideal value to recycle 1-2 barrels per day by itself. For operation only electricity, cooling water and compressed air supply is required. An investment that pays for itself quickly.

New Compact Linear Drive
PIShift drives are compact and cost-efficient piezo linear drives from PI (Physik Instrumente), the Karlsruhe specialist for positioning systems. The drives use the stick-slip effect and, due to the high operating frequency of more than 20 kHz, they are noiseless. The load is coupled to the moving rod. Typical applications of drives operating with this principle are the adjustment of optical and opto-mechanical components, cell manipulation as well as industrial applications
