Carbon Adsorption Systems are an environmentally sound and cost-effective emission reclamation device.
Carbon Adsorption Systems
During the cleaning process, a vapor degreaser can release potentially toxic solvent emissions; this problem is more common in large-scale vapor degreasing operations, such as tube or auto part degreasing which use bulk chlorinated solvents like Perchloroethylene or Trichloroethylene.
Carbon adsorbers exhaust the solvent-filled air (byproduct of a degreasing operation) into carbon beds, which then adsorb the solvent. After the adsorption process, the air can be released into the atmosphere with little-to-no solvent remaining. The carbon beds are then steam-stripped and made ready for further use. However, it's important to be conscious of a solvent's acid acceptance level during carbon adsorption, as this process tends to remove the stabilizer molecules present in an azeotropic mixture in the solvent vapors.
