Acetone Case Study
A large Midwestern printer approached CB Mills in 2006, wanting to minimize the use of virgin acetone by reclaiming their contaminated solvent. CB Mills planned a trial test at our lab facility after a careful examination of the material safety data sheets for the solids contaminating the acetone.
- Reclaim 99.9% of the contaminated acetone.
- Maximize recycling of the contaminated acetone.
After a review of the material safety data sheets by our engineers, it was concluded that a sample can be run on CB Mills’ laboratory on the RHS-30 model. The trial confirmed that the reclaimed acetone was indistinguishable from “virgin” solvent.
CB Mills manufactured and installed a solvent recovery system large enough to maximize the Midwestern printer company’s reclaimed acetone. Shortly after the successful installation of CB Mills’ acetone recovery system, the customer reported outstanding savings, which resulted in a ROI for the system in 8.3 months.
