PPCTS announces the installation of sixteen (16) ECOpure Solvent recyclers in the first half of 2011, for the recycling of dirty flexo press wash solvents, used for the cleaning of the printing decks and inking systems of solvent based flexo presses or for flexo plate developer solvent wash.

With continued sharp increases in costs of solvents, outside recycling, transportation and disposal of used solvents, in-house recycling with ECOpure Solvent Recyclers gives printers and/or flexo plate manufacturers, control over their solvent expenditures, while helping the environment, sustainability and their bottom line.

As print run lengths decrease, job changeover frequency increases and more flexo printing plates are manufactured, solvent usages for press ink deck wash and flexo plate developing increases significantly. In-house recycling of dirty solvents allows the flexibility to adapt to market changes with minimal solvent cost impact to the cost of manufacturing.

By recycling in-house spent dirty solvent with the ECOpure Solvent Recycler, purchases of new or recycled solvent can be decreases by approximately 95 percent, with a corresponding reduction of waste disposal and an ROI of less than 1 year, more typically in the 4 to 7 month range. 

The state of the art ECOpure Solvent Recycler features one of the safest electronically controlled distillation processes that separate contaminants from the used solvent. The result is clean, distilled, original solvent ready for reuse. The ECOpure Solvent Recycler distillation process for flexo solvents is conducted under vacuum to increase efficiency with a recovery rate of 95 percent or higher. 

PPCTS offers ECOpure Solvent Recyclers in different sizes to meet each customer’s specific needs, which are certified under UL2208, Class 1 Div 1 Group Ex-proof, for Flexo Plate Developer, Flexo Press Ink System Wash-up solvents, as well as many other industrial use solvents.
