Carbon Adsorption Systems for Solvent Recovery

B&W MEGTEC designs, supplies and installs solvent recovery systems that utilize regenerative activated carbon adsorption, condensation, scrubbing and distillation technologies to control Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) vapor emissions from solvent-based manufacturing processes. Our systems help to comply with environmental regulations, and can recover the solvents for reuse, generating substantial savings in operating costs.

B&W MEGTEC solvent recovery systems treat streams with a multitude of solvents, such as chlorinated, fluorinated, brominated, HFCs, hydrocarbons (aromatic and aliphatic), ketones, esters, alcohols, DMF for applications such as:

  • Lithium-ion battery electrode manufacturing
  • Synthetic film and fiber manufacturing (membranes, battery separators)
  • Wastewater treatment (solvent removal)
  • Pharmaceuticals (tablet coating, fluid bed drying, condenser vents)
  • Paper, film and foil coating (coating of advanced materials)
  • Chemical manufacturing (hydrogen peroxide, munitions)
  • Electronics (photoresist, screens)
  • Rubber (gloves, gaskets, balls)
  • Plastics (foam)
  • Chemical etching (metals and electronics)
  • Degreasing and food products (extraction and drying)
  • Remediation (soil vapor extraction; air strippers)
  • Gravure printing (publications, packaging)

Features & Benefits:

  • Very high emission control efficiencies to exceed regulatory requirements
  • Low energy cost and fully automatic to reduce operating costs
  • The right metallurgy to minimize corrosion and low maintenance cost
  • Flow capacities from 500 to 750,000 SCFM
  • Complete pre-assembled skid-mounted systems up to 25,000 SCFM
  • Complete, total turn-key large capacity systems
