The URS500 is a favorite of the Paint and Body Shop. The URS500 solvent recycler provides a shop with clean recycled solvent every day. Typical solvents include paint thinner, gun wash solvent and acetone. With a Uni-ram solvent recycler, a shop’s environmental footprint shrinks and the shop saves money. Solvent purchases and offsite waste transport costs drop by approximately 90%.
The URS500 provides 5 gal of clean recycled solvent from each recycling batch.
Automotive Solvent Recyclers
|Capacity||5 gal, 19L||6.6 gal, 25L||20 gal, 75 L|
|Input||110-120 V||220-240 V||220-240 V|
|Heating Element||1,500 W||2,100 W||3,400 W|
The work shop of all collision repairs shop is classified as a class 1 division 2 by the National Electrical Code, due to the intermittent presence of solvent vapors. The paint mixing room is classified as the more stringent class 1 division 1 area, as solvent vapors are normally present. Uni-ram solvent recyclers are approved for use in all collision repair shops, other class 1 division 1 and 2 locations and non classified locations.
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.
Reclaim lacquer thinners and gun wash solvents used to remove paint and debris from spray guns and other spray equipment.
This model is the same as URS500 except dirty solvent is pumped directly into the distillation tank and clean recycled solvent is pumped from the receiving pail to an external clean container. Pumps are activated by turning a timer.
The work place is safer: no pails to lift, no solvent to pour, less solvent spillage, and less chance of workplace lifting injuries.
The URS500EP2 is designed to connect to and recycle used solvent from E-model spray gun and pressure pot cleaners such as UG4000E, UG6000E, UG5000EW, UG6000EH, UPP6500E and UG7500E. These units are equipped with special pails and hoses to permit easy flow of solvent to and from the solvent recycler.
The transfer system of the URS500EP2 includes:
Two dual diaphragm pumps, two 5-minute timers, a receiving pail, hoses and fittings.
These are versions of the URS500 model with a 316-grade stainless steel condenser and fittings to resist acidic and corrosive solvents. The URS500 has a copper condenser.
WATER: Use the URS500SS to recycle water or used solvent that includes water. Water can corrode a copper condenser but not a stainless steel condenser.
URS 600 SERIES
including URS 600EP2, URS600SS and URS 600EP2SS
The URS600 series is the same as the URS500 series except that the URS600 series has 220-240 V input while the URS500 series has 110-120 V input.
