Solvent Saver

Solvent Saver Continuous (SSC) Recycling Equipment

Do you use a lot of solvents? Do you spend a lot of money dealing with the waste? To stay competitive, you have to keep your costs low. But to keep regulators happy and the environment safe, you have to demonstrate green initiatives. What can your organization do? 

With Maratek’s Solvent Saver – Continuous (SSC) recycling line of products, you can expect to recycle up to 95% of your used solvents. This line of solvent recycling equipment processes waste solvent automatically with almost no operator intervention required.

Waste solvent streams can be recycled efficiently and economically using the Maratek SSC solvent recyclers. All Maratek SSC solvent recycling units are designed to integrate into your production process. No matter the make-up of your waste solvent stream, from acetone to alcohols, any contaminated solvents can be recycled to their original form.

Solvent Saver - Continuous (SSC)

Sized From 30-200+ Gallons/Hour 

A Versatile Model With More Automation

The Solvent Saver Continuous product line can recover between 5 to 100+ gallons/hour and operate virtually without an operator. To find the right size for your application our team will access the solvent and waste characteristics of your waste stream. 

These rates are assigned according to the reference chemical, acetone, without any contaminants. SSC models do not use bags and include more automations than Batch Premium  style units. Internal scrapers are also used to manage waste buildup inside the vessel and assist with discharge of viscous wastes..

All SSC units are fully constructed of 304 and 316 stainless steel. Air cooling is standard for smaller sizes but can be changed to water without additional cost. Larger systems are water cooled systems and require a source of chilling water which can be provided by Maratek. 

By selecting the appropriate options these units can be tailored to fit a variety of applications and they can be integrated into most industrial uses. The Maratek SSC units can be configured with different heating and condensing mediums, making these units extremely versatile.

Operating Principle

Maratek’s solvent recycling SSC models separate solvents using the proven process of distillation, as shown through the numbered illustration below.

  1. The waste solvent is automatically pumped into the distillation vessel. 
  2. The distillation vessel is fitted with a jacket of thermal oil that is heated by one or more electric heaters which brings the waste solvent to its boiling point. 
  3. Pure solvent vapors are then channeled to an air cooled condenser, where it cools into its liquid form. 
  4. The liquid is then directed to the clean solvent collection drums, where it can be re-used.
  5. As solvent is recovered new waste is automatically fed into the unit without operator intervention.
  6. Once solvent recovery is complete the waste sludge is automatically discharged to a waiting drum/tote below.
