Why we using Solvent recyclers ?

Reduced Dependency on Virgin Solvents:

By recycling solvents, businesses can reduce their reliance on virgin (new) solvent purchases. This can be particularly advantageous during supply chain disruptions or fluctuations in solvent prices.

Environmental Benefits:

By recycling solvents, businesses can minimize their environmental impact. Instead of disposing of used solvent, which can be harmful to the environment if not handled properly, solvent recyclers help reduce hazardous waste generation and promote sustainability.

Cost Savings:

Solvents can be expensive, especially when used in large quantities for industrial processes. Solvent recyclers allow businesses to reclaim and reuse solvent that would otherwise be discarded as waste. This significantly reduces solvent purchase and disposal costs over time.

Stop of Common Issue and Knowledge

Q1.What is contaminated shop air?
A: Air containing moisture, liquid water, rust particles, and/or air compressor oil.

Q1a.Why is it bad?
A: Along with causing problems to our equipment, these pollutants can find their way into your next paint job.

Q2.How can compressor oil get into a gun washer?
A: The pistons inside an air compressor ride up and down on rings just as they do inside a car engine.

Over time, these rings(shown below) wear out.
As they wear, they will continue to lose their ability to seal properly.
When the wear becomes excessive, the compressor’s lubricating oil is allowed to escape into the shop’s compressed air, in a process called blow-by. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much oil to ruin a paint job, producing an effect called “fisheye”.

Q2a.How to fix the bad air?
A:There is a quick way to get an idea if you have bad air, you will need a connected airline with coupler, an air fitting, and white cloth.
Carefully insert the air fitting into the coupler, directing the outflow of air into the white cloth for a second. Examine the white cloth,
and look for the evidence of wetness, dirt, or oil stains.

A positive indication here means we have issues with our shop air supply. We recommend a compressor or air filter technician visit the shop and offer their opinion on corrective actions.
