Recycling Solvents for Paint Gun Cleaning

Paint Spray Gun Cleaning and Solvent Recycling

Paint thinner,  mineral spirits, and other solvents are often used for paint gun cleaning because of their ability to quickly dissolve paint residue in small openings. These solvents contain toxic compounds that present environmental concerns and health risks to the general public. 

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions from solvents contribute to smog formation. Shop operators need to know and follow rules for record keeping, purchase, use, storage, and management of solvent products and their resulting waste. The cost of both the disposal of these hazardous wastes and solvent loss from evaporation places a significant burden on smaller facilities and shop owners. Now, thanks to affordable, IoT on-site solvent recycling, paint shops and facilities can now lift the burden of recycling solvents used for paint gun cleaning without having to devote resources to an operations team in order to manage the still.
