Eco-Dec: The Eco-Friendly Solution for Solvent Recycling

Eco-Dec Solvent Regenerator

Ever wondered how your business could save significantly on solvent and thinner expenses while also minimizing its environmental footprint?

Dive into our exploration of the Eco-Dec Solvent Regenerator, a game-changing solution for cost-effective and eco-friendly solvent management.

The Eco-Solvent Revolution

Businesses operating paint booths that rely on solvents and thinners, particularly in the GCC region, face a common predicament. They grapple with substantial monthly expenses incurred in procuring solvents and the complex logistics involved in storing and disposing of used solvents.

These financial and operational challenges strain their budgets, resulting in decreased operational efficiency. Thus, there is a pressing need for cutting-edge solutions to address these issues and ensure the smooth and cost-effective operation of their paint booth facilities.

Unveiling the Eco-Dec Solvent Regenerator

Blue Rhine made a significant impact in the GCC market by introducing the Eco-Dec Solvent Regenerator, a remarkable and game-changing solvent recovery system. This innovative solution presents substantial cost savings while also showcasing a strong commitment to environmental responsibility. It has quickly become the center of attention for business owners in pursuit of efficient and sustainable solvents and thinners management.

Eco-Dec: A Groundbreaking Solution in Solvent Recycling

Eco-Dec, the company behind this innovation, has a rich history dating back to 1987 in Berneau, Belgium. Their journey led to the development of a state-of-the-art industrial solvent regenerator and a series of patents in the early 2000s.

Notably, their regenerator featured an impressive bottom heating system, earning them a prestigious gold medal at the 2007 Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions. In 2020, a new team of industrial engineers joined Eco-Dec, reaffirming their commitment to advancing global solvent recovery services and reducing environmental impact.

The Process: Regenerating Pure Solvent with Efficiency and Precision

The Eco-Dec Solvent Regenerator, available in various capacities to suit business needs, features a robust stainless-steel solvent tank, a high-performance aluminum alloy heating plate, a solvent vapor condenser, temperature and level probes, and a user-friendly control box.

Commencing the solvent recovery process, the first step entails the careful insertion of the heat-resistant polyamide bag into the stainless-steel tank of this solvent recovery unit. Following this, the used solvent is poured into the bag, ensuring a controlled and spill-free transfer.

To initiate the regeneration sequence, the tank's cover is equipped with a rubber gasket and a ring-shaped edge designed to create a secure and reliable seal. Once the cover is securely fastened, the regenerator springs into action. An aluminum heating plate takes charge, gradually elevating the solvent's temperature until it reaches its boiling point.

When this critical stage is reached, the solvent undergoes a transformative shift into vapor. This vapor is naturally collected in the condenser, and the magic unfolds. Here's the genius part – the vapor is efficiently cooled via a water condenser system, meticulously engineered for optimal heat exchange.
