SRS Engineering Corporation’s Solvent Distillation Systems distill and condense solvents, thinners and cleaners. This unique, affordable system will recover approximately 90% of the original batch volume for reuse, significantly reducing new solvent purchases as well as the volume of dirty solvents and/or solids to be disposed of.

  SRS offers four solvent recovery systems currently approved by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)

Some Commonly Recycled Solvents:

  • Acetone
  • Alcohol
  • Amyl Acetate
  • Butyl Acetate
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Ethylene Glycol Ethyl Ether
  • Isobutyl Acetate
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Lacquer Diluents
  • Methyl Alcohol (Methanol)
  • Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)

In the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, the preferred waste minimization options, as defined by Section 6602(b) of the Act, are prevention and environmentally sound recycling followed by treatment and disposal.

A 1994 guideline document (EPA/625/R-93/017) states that: “recycling should be used where possible to minimize or avoid the need to treat wastes that remain after viable source reduction options have been evaluated and/or implemented.”
