What are solvent recovery bags?

There are many factors to keep in mind when choosing a solvent recovery bag. Also known as solvent recycling bags, solvent recovery bags or liners are used in applications where there are numerous solids in the contaminated solvent (for example, paints and coatings and automotive refineries, paint spray guns, and specialized manufacturing.) The type of solvents used in this applications include acetone, paint thinners, varsol, mineral spirits, and toluene. These solvents are necessary because of their superior cleaning capability, but once dirty they can be recycled over and over on-site. Solvent recovery bags and liners are essential for easy clean-up when reusing these solvents. Solvent Recycling Systems provides high-quality solvent recovery bags coming in a variety of different quantities, and form one of the highest grade, high-temperature materials available. Solvent recovery bags are critical to facilities, especially when the solvent waste needs to be processed in batch (typically some variation of 6 gallon, 30 gallon, 60 gallon, or more). Solvent recycling bags are not standard bags— they need to be able to handle high-temperature environments without melting, typically in excess of 400 degrees.  The bags are primarily single use, so it’s extremely important for facilities to find a cost-effective approach while maintaining superior design and function. Make sure you consider the following when choosing a solvent recovery bag:
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Tensile Strength
  • Thermal Resistance
  • Abrasion and Puncture Resistance
  • Recyclable
