The ASC-500 50 kW is an extremely comfortable vacuum solvent recovery plant from the professional ASC series. It has a modern integrated steam heating.
A special feature of the solvent recovery plant is the conical stainless steel distillation vessel or boiler, in which the shell surface is heated with steam. The solvent recovery plant heating steam in the double jacket transfers the heat extremely quickly to the solvent. At the same time, high distillation performance is achieved with a small boiler volume.
The solvent recovery plant has a clever design. Only one electrical connection is required for the integrated steam heating of the solvent recovery plant. A high performance liquid ring vacuum pump conveys the dirt into the solvent recovery plant and guarantees continuous 24 hour operation. During automatic distillation in the recovery plant, the evaporated amount of solvent is automatically replenished by the addition of dirt into the solvent recovery plant. This automatic continuous distillation mode can be set by timer.
If the dirt tank of the customer contains no more solvent, the solvent recovery plant receive a signal and automatically switches to "sump distillation". The continuous filling into the solvent recovery plant is stopped and the amount of solvent still present in the solvent recovery plant boiler is evaporated until the dirt becomes a thick concentrate. The solvent recovery plant then switches off and is ready for manual or fully automatic emptying.
The distilled or purified solvent flows continuously from the solvent recovery plant into the customer's on-site tank.
Perfect scraper system in ASC-500 solvent recovery plant
A further feature of the ASC solvent recovery plant is a slow-running scraper agitator with automatically adjusting doctor blade made of PTFE. This unique doctor blade (scraper) system has been further developed over 30 years and is now used in our solvent recovery plant for its robustness and cleaning efficiency. Two strong scrapers made of PTFE optimally clean the conical evaporator vessel in the solvent recovery plant and do not have to be readjusted. The doctor blades or scrapers clean the boiler wall over the entire filling area and not only at the boiler bottom like other solvent recovery plants.
The contact pressure on the steep walls is optimal and large enough to prevent the build-up of deposits in solvent recovery plant.
The entire solvent distillation process for the solvent recovery plant is controlled by a SIEMENS SPS S7 1200. If the local requirements of the customer change due to tanks, pumps or processes, the Siemens control system can be reprogrammed at any time and adapted to customer requirements for the solvent recovery plant integration. And this in national language bps. Chinese, Russian etc.! The OFRU solvent recovery plant is multi-language ready.
The viscous solvent residues in the solvent recovery plant are emptied by gravity via a slide valve at the lowest point of the conically round boiler. The solvent recovery plant can then be automatically refilled with contaminated solvent. A new continuous distillation process of solvents begins.
