The BB30N solvent recycler provides a shop with clean recycled solvent every day. Typical solvents include paint thinner, acetone and varsol. With a Uni-ram solvent recycler the shop’s environmental footprint shrinks and the shop saves money. Solvent purchases and the cost for used solvent transported off-site drop by approximately 90%.
The BB30N provides 5 gal of clean recycled solvent from each recycling batch.
Capacities For Industrial Solvent Recyclers

|Heating Element||2,100 W||3,400 W||3,400 W|
1) lowering of the heater wattage to make the boiling phase less vigorous; this is important for improving the quality of low boiling point solvents such as acetone.
2) increasing the post heat time to make the solvent residue dryer thus increasing recycling efficiency.
IMPORTANT SAFETY AND USAGE ADVISORY
Do not recycle solvents that includes Nitrocellulose due to its low auto ignition temperature and Peroxides due to its thermal decomposition. Check the Safety Data Sheet of both the solvent and waste material for the presence of these 2 substances.
Pour 5 gallons of used solvent into the liner bag in the distillation tank. Press Start to turn on the heating element. The solvent vaporizes, travels through the condenser where it is cooled to a liquid by an electric fan and then flows into the receiving pail. The residue that remains in the heat resistant liner bag is transferred to a waste drum for later disposal. Most residues including waste paint is disposed of as a hazardous material.
