Gas cylinder recycling (e.g. of acetylen gas cylinders) using vacuum distillation
Especially challenging is the disposal/ recycling of acetylen gas cylinders. Gas cylinders with damaged porous material contain a significant amount of solvents.
Therefore especially these issues arise:
- Unraveling the cylinder body has high risks of explosion since the porous mass contains solvent.
- The disposal of the porous mass which still contains solvent to a dumping ground is without proper preparation illegal and endangers the environment.
- The disposal of this gas cylinders is very expensive
The solution: INHOUSE-RECYCLING
A vacuum pump evacuvates the separation vessel as well as the attached gas cyclinders. As soon as the given vacuum level is reached the magnetic induction heating is activated and the destillation process starts The gas cylinders slowly heat up until the aceton evaporates into a gaseous stat. The vacuum pump suctions the resulting gas through a platter heat exchanger. The gas condensates in the platter heat exchanger and is collected in the separation vessel in a liquid state.
Our units operate on the distillation principle and enable a rapid and cost-efficient integration into existing production and/ or purification systems.
