The ProSolvģ Propane Cylinder
Recycling System removes the
sealing sleeve and internal valve stem from propane,
propylene, mapp and calibration gas cylinders, empties and
filters gas, allows recycling of empty cylinder as scrap
The Built-in Gauge Lets You Know When
Itís A Go
By briefly pressing the Gauge Activation Button youíll
know whether or not the propane cylinder is empty. If
the gauge registers in the red area it is not ready to be
emptied and should be put back into operation. If it
registers in the green area, itís a go!
Residual Propellant is Filtered of
The Activated Carbon Filter threads directly to the threaded
of the safety features incorporated into the system.
Although not required
by RCRA for propane cylinder disposal, the filter addresses
air quality and emissions standards.
The Activated Carbon Cartridge Does
Dry propellant moves through the Activated Carbon Cartridge,
adsorbs hydrocarbons and odor. It also acts as a
secondary flashback arrestor during the recycling process.
The Activated Carbon Cartridge
Contains 1 1⁄4 Pounds of Carbon
Made from ground coconut shell, the activated carbon
promotes rapid evacuation of the propellant. The forty steel
recycling certification tags provided with each carbon
cartridge serve as the filter replacement indicator.
When all the tags have been used, the filter must be
replaced for maximum efficiency.
The Result? Recyclable Steel and RCRA
After using the system, youíve got an empty steel can with
a small, smooth-edged hole. In as little as five seconds. No
spills. No jagged edges. And, no compressed gas, so itís
ready for recycling with your other scrap steel.
the Pressure of Propane Cylinder Disposal
A propane cylinder canít be relieved of pressure through
normal use. Even when ďemptyĒ, the retained propellant
can react to heat or pressure when crushed or bailed. With
the system, you can safely remove the sealing sleeve and
internal valve stem, relieve the pressure, and filter the
propellant. By recycling the depressurized propane cylinder,
youíll eliminate an entire category of waste from your
Each system is shipped with an Anti-Static Wire. The
six-foot length anti-static wire provides convenient
installation, anywhere in your plant. Attached to the unit
by an Allen screw and ring-terminal, it prevents static
build-up by grounding the unit, as required by OSHA for
liquid storage vessels.
