Solvent Recovery

By recovering valuable solvents for reuse, our activated carbon products help protect the environment while enabling industrial operations to run more economically.

Various industries use organic solvents in processes that involve eventual evaporation into the air. These solvent vapors can be recovered economically through an activated carbon solvent recovery system. In a continuous cycle, the solvent-laden air is passed through an adsorber filled with our activated carbon that adsorbs the vapor until it is saturated and breakthrough occurs. The vapor stream is then switched to a second adsorber while the solvent is recovered in the first by desorption with pressurized steam.
