What is Solvent Recovery?

Solvent recovery is the process of extracting and recovering useful components from waste solvents by processing them. Solvents are widely used in many industries, such as chemical, pharmaceutical, paint and coating, printing, electronics, etc. Since the use of solvents is usually accompanied by large solvent emissions and waste of resources, solvent recovery is becoming an increasing concern. Through the process of solvent recovery, the useful components of waste solvents can be extracted and recovered, thereby reusing resources and reducing the environmental impact of waste.

How can Activated Carbon be Used for Solvent Recovery?

Carbone attivo is a commonly used adsorbent material for solvent recovery. Its highly porous structure and large surface area give it excellent adsorption properties. The following are the general ways activated carbon is used in solvent recovery:

Absorption recovery: Activated carbon can adsorb many organic solvents. In the solvent recovery process, when the exhaust gas or waste liquid containing solvents passes through the activated carbon bed, its solvent molecules will be adsorbed by the porous structure of activated carbon and stay on the surface of activated carbon, thus removing the solvents from the gas or liquid and making solvent recovery and reuse possible.

Desorption and reuse: The solvent adsorbed onto the activated carbon can be desorbed from the activated carbon by raising the temperature, lowering the pressure, or changing the environmental conditions so that the solvent can be reused. The desorbed solvent can be separated and recovered by condensation, condensation, and distillation to obtain a high purity solvent.

Activated carbon recycling: The desorbed activated carbon can be used again to adsorb new solvents, thus realizing the recycling of activated carbon and reducing the cost and environmental impact of the solvent recovery process.

How to Select the Proper Activated Carbon for Solvent Recovery?

  1. Activated Carbon Raw Material Selection: Different raw materials of activated carbon have different adsorption properties for different solvents, so the nature, concentration and temperature of the solvent should be considered when selecting activated carbon, in order to choose the suitable activated carbon material and specifications.
  2. Activated carbon pore size, specific surface area, adsorption capacity and other parameters will affect its adsorption performance, which should be reasonably selected according to the characteristics of the solvent and the requirements of the solvent recovery process.

Huamei Activated Carbon For Solvent Recovery

At present, activated carbon in the market is prone to difficulties such as fast adsorption saturation rate, short usage time, and low regeneration rate in solvent recovery applications, which not only brings great trouble to customers but also is a major problem for activated carbon manufacturers.

Recently, Carbone attivo Huamei has developed a new type of activated carbon specifically for solvent recovery. In the application field of activated carbon, the pore size ratio of activated carbon (macropore, mesopore, and micropore) plays an important role. In the field of solvent recovery, the ratio of mesopores of activated carbon plays an important role. The larger the volume of mesopores, the faster the rate of absorption and removal. We have developed this activated carbon through a special process, which increases the volume of mesopores and greatly improves the effect of solvent recovery.
