Save With Solvent Recyclers & Can Crushers
So what's the big deal with solvent recyclers? Are they worth the investment? Do they actually work? ... well the answer is a resounding yes !
A number of factors have all combined to make solvent recyclers the product of the moment for paint shops and heavy paint / solvent users throughout industry - Why?
REASON 1 - Reducing Solvent is Graded Crucial For All
Solvent is on the Government's hit list - they produce VOC's which damage the earth and incoming levy's and penalties for using too much of them.
Local Authorities already distribute VOC targets per business if you rise above them, you'll need an expensive license, so the incentive to keep VOC's low. For the purchasing department there is a crisis of upwards rising prices, if solvent purchasing can be reduced then that takes one less headache away.
REASON 2 - Solvent Recovery = Reductions
A solvent recycler's main purpose is as you might expect to recover solvent used in a business. Anything from gunwash lines, to paint thinning and general cleaning creates solvent waste. Via the process below the machine recovers as much solvent as possible which can then be reused to clean guns and lines once more.
This recovered figure can reach as high as 98% of what goes in! If 98% is being recovered you can reduce your purchasing costs for solvent, this reduces your VOC levels and even reduces your storage and waste collection costs...a win all round.

REASON 3 - A Unique Tax Opportunity
The UK Government is desperately trying to stimulate trade and one way they have given provision for this is via capital equipment to support businesses.
Usually you buy capital equipment like solvent recyclers or can crushers claiming 100% of the capital back against your tax bill as capex. Currently the Govt has topped that up so that you can buy your equipment and receive a further 30% off your tax bill a total of 130%!! When you couple this tax saving with a solvent recyclers primary function to reduce solvent purchasing costs, a company can recoup the initial investment in under 5 months.

The Figures - How Much Will A Solvent Recycler Save Me?
Solvent recyclers aren't just about solvent cost savings they provide a full circle of time, waste, VOC and product savings for your company. Here are the hard facts;
- Reduce solvent waste disposal costs. The recycler converts waste to non-hazardous status and dry solids meaning no specialist removal costs.
- Reduce VOC's by approx 22kg per 25 litres of average gunwash recycled.
- Reduce Health and Safety inspections by storing less solvent on site.
- Up to 98% of solvent can be recovered and reused meaning less requirment for buying new clean solvent.
- 5-7 hr running cycle converts quickly at an average cost of £3 (electricity, solvent bag, service) per 25 litres or (0.12p a ltr)
