Hazardous waste recycling is one of the few areas where national environmental goals, industries economic interests and public health and safety issues clearly coincide. For industry, the benefits include reduced costs, liabilities, and regulatory burdens associated with hazardous waste management. For the general public, hazardous waste minimization pays off in our improved environment.
Our nation has interests in minimizing the overall amounts of hazardous waste being transported on our highways and stored at hazardous waste sites. The EPA tailors rules and regulations to encourage on site recycling and reuse.
Of course, to dispose of hazardous wastes in any unlawful way is just foolhardy and a good way to risk heavy cleanup costs, stiff fines and possible jail time.
The Sidewinder Model M-2 Solvent Recovery System, made in the USA, has become Industry's number one choice because it's hassle free and saves dollars. Load it with dirty solvent, press the button, you're done. Self monitoring, it turns off automatically and you have clean gun wash and cleanup solvents, ready for reuse.
Whether you know it as an acetone recycler, a xylene reclaimer, a solvent distillation unit, a solvent recovery system, a lacquer thinner recycler, an alcohol recycler, an MEK reclaimer or a solvent recovery system, most know it as Sidewinder.
The Sidewinder solvent distillation unit reduces the volume of hazardous materials on-site and all but eliminates the need to transport liquid hazardous waste on our streets and highways.
The Sidewinder Model M-2 has been tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc for use in a normal, non-hazardous location. Here are some of the solvents for recycling but you may know them under a different name. Please call us and we can help you determine if the Sidewinder is the right distiller reclaimer for your solvents. Be prepared to email us your MSD sheet.
