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
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.
