DEC.SRU™ • Solvent Recovery Units (SRU | SRS | SRP) for flexible packaging industries
Solvent Recovery Units (DEC.SRU™), also known as Solvent Recovery Systems (SRS) or Solvent Recovery Plants (SRP), are devices used to recover solvents from air emissions of flexible packaging production.
Solvents are used in a variety of industrial processes, including flexible packaging production, and can be harmful to human health and the environment if released into the air. SRU systems work by capturing the solvents from the air emissions and then recycling them back into the production process. This helps to reduce air pollution and can also save businesses money on the cost of solvents (ROI).
Solvent Recovery Units (DEC.SRU™) dedicated to flexible packaging industries are the best solution to reduce solvent emissions (VOCs) in a sustainable way: no oxidation, no CO2 (DECarbonization).
The solvent is recovered, for direct reuse, at a fraction of its purchase cost and with a purity even higher than the fresh virgin solvent.
SLA (Solvent Laden Air) is pushed by the fans through a multi-adsorber (activated carbon) system, to allow a high efficiency VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) capture.
Once the adsorbent is saturated (automatically monitored by a VOC analyzer), the system is automatically cleansing the adsorbent, through a regeneration cycle. The system is using an exclusive DEC.PHD™ dehydration process (in gaseous phase), allowing the direct recovery of an anhydrous solvent mix.
Flexible packaging is a type of packaging that is characterized by its ability to conform and adapt to the shape of the product being packaged: it is widely used in various industries, including food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and more. Flexible packaging offers advantages such as lightweight construction, excellent barrier properties, extended shelf life, and convenience for consumers.
Rotogravure, flexo, lamination, coating, and lacquering are different processes commonly employed in the production of flexible packaging. Let's take a closer look at each of these processes:
Rotogravure printing, also known as gravure printing, is a high-quality and high-speed printing process used for flexible packaging: it involves engraving the desired image or design onto a cylinder, which is then coated with solvent based ink. The engraved cells on the cylinder pick up the ink and transfer it onto the packaging material. The result is a precise and vibrant print, with excellent color reproduction.
Flexographic printing, or flexo printing, is another widely used printing method in flexible packaging. It utilizes flexible relief plates made of rubber or photopolymer. These plates are mounted on rotating cylinders and transfer ink onto the packaging material. Flexo printing is known for its versatility, fast production speeds, and ability to print on various substrates.
Lamination is the process of bonding multiple layers of materials together to create a composite structure with enhanced properties. In flexible packaging, lamination is commonly used to combine different materials, such as plastic films, aluminum foils, and paper, to create packaging that provides barrier properties, strength, and durability. The layers are bonded together using solvent based or solvent-less adhesives or heat.
Coating involves applying a thin layer of material onto the surface of the packaging material to enhance its performance or appearance. Various coatings can be applied, including protective coatings, barrier coatings, UV coatings for enhanced gloss or protection, and more. Coating processes can be used to improve the resistance to moisture, oxygen, light, or chemicals, depending on the specific requirements of the packaging.
Lacquering is a process that involves applying a clear or colored coating to the surface of the flexible packaging material. It is often used to enhance the appearance of the packaging, provide a glossy or matte finish, and protect the printed design from wear and tear. Lacquers can be applied through various methods such as roller coating, spray coating, or immersion coating.
