Smart Waste Management for Solvent Recycling

INTELLIGENT, IOT-BASED Solvent waste management

Smart waste management and solvent recycling are vitally important today. Ask any segment of an industry that uses solvent recyclers for waste management and they would agree: there are many benefits to putting spent solvent through a process of distillation. For starters, it removes the chemicals that made it dirty in the first place. Companies don’t need to buy the same amount of solvent because old solvent can be reused in the facility. You can reduce disposal fees with less dirty solvent. EPA paperwork and compliance become less of a burden. But how can some low- to mid-size processing facilities — the medical laboratories, auto body shops, paint shops and paint contractors of the world— really see these benefits unless they’re continuously processing? They may be asking:

  • What are the recycler operating costs – how do labor costs, electricity and the cost of liners factor in?
  • What are the cost savings from reduced purchases of virgin solvent?
  • Will I need to modify my presence to operate the still?
  • How much area will this recycling unit occupy?
  • How many extra drums of solvent should I store, in case I run out?
  • Will a highly skilled worker be required to operate and maintain the system?

The Answer? SMart Waste MANAGEMENT And Tank Level Monitoring

The Internet of Things is revolutionizing chemical waste management.

 

 

The potential for manufacturers to improve productivity and supply chain management is greater today than ever before. The Internet of Things (IoT) has set in motion a new industrial revolution—that is, as technologies continue to emerge that decentralize the need for production management, a paradigm shift in manufacturing is happening in parallel. Smart products and systems can now take corrective action to avoid downtime in the workplace – made possible through the use of automated systems, robots, NC machines, PLCs, cameras and wireless tools. And now, in the case of solvent recycling, we can add automatically replenishing solvent to the list.

IoT-enabled Tank LEVEL Monitoring Sensors for Solvent Recycling

Through the use of tank level monitoring sensors, Solvent Recycling Systems (SRS) can take over the management out of solvent waste recovery immediately. An on-site solvent recycler displays a read-out every 8 hours. Once a solvent reaches a certain pre-specified level in the distillation tank, an alert is sent to both the operations team and SRS. This triggers an automated chemical refill. What does this do?

Benefits of Smart Waste Monitoring

For starters, this approach to solvent recycling reduces check-ins and offloads:

  • Respond to critical warning alerts only
  • Improve routing and shipment efficiency
  • Increase customer satisfaction and uptime
  • Adhere to corporate disposal and compliance regulations

Second, by applying predictive analytics to solvent waste recycling, SRS can significantly reduce labor costs, eliminate costs associated with manual tank inspection, and raise productivity for facilities of all sizes. This means that any business model or industry, with any processing need, can gain actionable insights that take the guesswork out of solvent waste management.
