Here’s how we recently partnered with a top-tier cabinet manufacturer in the United States to overcome their solvent recovery challenges. This blog details the client’s unique requirements and how Maratek’s specialized solvent recovery solutions brought efficiency and sustainability to their operations.

Client Challenges and Custom Solutions

The client faced limitations with an existing system that couldn’t keep pace with their daily demand, leading to frequent purchases of costly virgin solvents. They needed a system capable of processing 300 gallons of waste daily, including handling acidic conditions and managing high sludge volumes.

Maratek responded with the SSC-40 unit, an advanced system designed to recycle up to 95 percent of used solvents and process 400-500 gallons per day. This fully automated solution, crafted from robust 304 stainless steel, efficiently manages waste and acidic conditions without the need for constant operator intervention.

Our client chose Maratek for our bespoke engineering solutions, comprehensive feature set, commitment to quality, and professional expertise. The SSC-40 unit, with its effective automation and operational capacity, aligned perfectly with the client's high-volume production needs.

Key Benefits and Outcomes

Our collaboration brought several key benefits for the business, including:

  • Enhanced Efficiency: The SSC-40’s internal heating coils improved heat transfer, optimizing solvent recovery efficiency.
  • Long-term Reliability: A high-pressure cleaning system was integrated to prevent debris buildup, ensuring lasting performance.
  • Advanced Automation: The system's user-friendly PLC offered seamless integration and minimal manual intervention.
  • Effective Particulate Control: A mist elimination system ensured zero particulate carryover, maintaining process integrity.
  • Safe Temperature Management: A thermal oil cooling system protected against overheating and potential solvent flash boiling.
