Solvent Recovery

AMCEC uses the adsorption power of activated carbon (about 1,200 m2 of surface area per gram) to recover organic solvents.

With recovery efficiencies as high as 99%, the economic potential is significant.

Many users further reduce their operating costs with our ECOVAP energy saving units and enhance their return on investment with our solvent treatment systems.


Solvent And Desorbate Treatment Systems

AMCEC solvent and desorbate treatment systems are custom designed to meet each client's requirements. A wide range of cost effective processes and equipment are offered:

- Air stripping

- Decantation

- Steam stripping

- Steam distillation

- Chemical drying

- Separation by selective adsorption

- Separation by membrane

One of the most commonly used treatment processes is steam distillation. The desorbate recovered from the steam regenerated carbon adsorption system is processed in high efficiency packed or trayed columns to separate water and solvents.

Alternatively, AMCEC offers inert gas regenerated solvent recovery systems that recover solvents with less than 0.1% water.
