Solvent Saver

Solvent Saver Batch Recycling Unit

Maratek has engineered the Solvent Saver Batch (SSB) line of products to separate waste solvents into reusable solvent and waste residue. Our Solvent Saver models deliver reliable performance and are easy to operate and maintain. Just plug, play, and watch your savings soar!

No matter what type of solvent you're using, from acetone to white spirits, contaminated solvents can be recycled to their original form and become reusable back into your production processes. You can expect to recycle up to 95% of your waste solvent stream.

Most industries today generate waste solvents in their processes. These solvents can easily be recycled for re-use. Maratek has engineered the Solvent Saver Batch line of products to separate waste solvents into re-usable solvent and waste residue. 

Our Batch units operate one cycle at a time, so you can control when it is running. If you generate less waste, the Batch models allow waste to be stored inside the unit until it is ready to run.

What is the difference between Batch and Batch Premium?

Our Batch and Batch Premium units are meant for different levels of difficulty. For simple applications with minimal automations we usually suggest our Batch units. For more difficult to manage waste recycling or when some level of automation is desired we may suggest our Batch Premium units.

Our Batch models come in 8, 16, 32, 48, and 64 gallon sizes, so we are able to accommodate all industries and applications.

Standard Features for Batch Unit:

  • Safety Features & Temperature Controls using a variety of sensors and automations all of our SSB units are able to run safely with minimal operator intervention.
  • Class I Div I Group D Explosion Proof all systems are certified Class I Div I Group D explosion proof.
  • Electric Heating With Thermal Oil using a thermal oil jacket, electric heaters quickly and evenly heat the boiling vessel.
  • Batch units include a small mounted button control system which allows for temperature and batch length settings. 

Optional Features:

  • Vacuum Assistance
  • Nitrocellulose Safety Features
  • Water / Solvent Separator
  • Automatic Filling (included with Batch Premium)
  • Stainless Steel Condenser (included with Batch Premium)

Operating Principle

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

  1. The waste solvent is fed or manually poured into the distillation vessel. 
  2. The distillation vessel uses a thermal oil jacket 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.
