Methylene Chloride Recovery Still 180 litre

Methylene Chloride Recovery Still 180-litre capacity

Stand-alone unit comes with distillation unit, one clean tank & one dirty tank

Manufactured to the Wessex design in our workshop, we can design a Still to any specification as required.

This methylene chloride recovery still has a capacity of 180 litres. The stand-alone unit comes with a distillation unit, one clean tank and one dirty tank.

This piece of apparatus is manufactured to the Wessex design in our workshop. However, we can design a methylene chloride recovery still to any specification that you require.

The recovery system runs a 3kw heating element. The dirty meths transfers into the distillation unit. Here it is heated until evaporation occurs. At this point, the vapour rises into a cooling coil where it is rapidly cooled and distils into the clean tank.

This process leaves a residue of bitumen in the heating chamber, which can be drained off as and when required. Also required with this still are chemical pumps, water circulating pumps and pipework.

In the accompanying product photo, a methylene chloride recovery still can be seen set up in a container next to the laboratory. In this photo, you will notice a third tank that is isolated from the still so that there will always be a supply of clean meths, allowing time for maintenance as needed. The system, as set up, allows the technician to transfer clean meths to the laboratory and between tanks as required.
