Prairie State Group Installs ECOpure™ SR180V Solvent Recycler to Reclaim/Reuse Press Wash Solvent

Pewaukee, WI. USA, January 17, 2011: PPCTS recently installed an ECOpure™ SR180V Solvent recycler at Prairie State Group, Franklin IL for the recycling of dirty flexo press wash solvent, used for the cleaning of the printing decks and inking systems of their solvent based flexo presses.
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.

By recycling spent dirty solvent with the ECOpure™ Solvent recycler, Prairie State is reducing their purchases of new press wash solvent by approximately 95 percent, with a corresponding reduction of waste disposal, positively impacting the environment and their sustainability, with an ROI of less than 1 year.
PPCTS offers ECOpure™ solvent recyclers, in different sizes to meet each customers’ specific needs, which are certified under UL2208, Class 1 Div 1 Group Ex-proof, for Flexo Plate Developer and Flexo Press Ink System Wash-up solvents, Offset Blanket Wash solvents, as well as many other industrial use solvents from acetones, isopropyl alcohol to white and mineral spirits.
