Prisco (Printers’ Service) has announced that printers can see complete solutions to reduce their environmental impact at Prisco Booth #201, Graph Expo 2011, September 11 – 14, 2011, in Chicago.
We cordially invite you to view the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycler System. Part of the “Go Green with Prisco” portfolio, the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycler System allows for easy and safe distillation and recycling of waste solvents used to clean and maintain printing presses. To complete the recycling package, Prisco also offers an extensive selection of recyclable solvents for optimum performance in every pressroom application.
PriscoTech SolvKlene systems are an ideal cost effective solution for dealing with the substantial amount of waste solvent generated by presses equipped with automatic blanket solvent washing systems. Prisco recyclable solvents offer continuously superior cleaning performance after repeated recycling in the SolvKlene system.
Solvents are distilled in the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycling System to remove contaminants – including water, ink and debris. In the case of water miscible solvents, water is separated from the solvent during the process. Water- miscible reclaimed solvent is ready for use after adding a specific percentage of the appropriate concentrate to restore components that may have been removed during the process. The recycled solvent is then equal to the original in its performance characteristics. The clean, recycled solvent can be used over and over.
Major benefits of on-site solvent recycling with the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycler System are:
- Reduced Solvent purchases: Every gallon of waste solvent recycled is a gallon that does not need to be purchased.
- Reduced Waste Transportation Costs: Waste solvent that must be transported off site and disposed is reduced by up to 95%, saving the printer substantial money.
- Reduced Inventory and Storage: On-site recycling allows for reduced volumes of new and waste solvent to be stored within the printing plant.
- Reduced VOC usage: Installation and operation of a PriscoTech SolvKlene II
Solvent Recycler System can assist a printer in meeting compliance with Environmental Regulations and Hazardous Waste Generation classification of the plant. By purchasing less solvent, VOC emissions are substantially reduced.
SolvKlene II Solvent Recycler Systems are offered in batch and continuous-feed models to meet the needs of almost any large and small printing plant. Hazardous waste solvents are an expensive problem for printers and the PriscoTech SolvKlene II Solvent Recycler System is an economical answer.
