Solvent Recovery Unit (SRU | SRS | SRP) for flexo 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 flexo industries.
Flexographic printing, or flexo printing, is a 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 solvent based ink onto the packaging material. Flexo printing is known for its versatility, fast production speeds, and ability to print on various substrates.
Solvent Recovery Units (SRU | SRS | SRP) dedicated to flexo industries are the best solution to reduce solvent emissions (VOCs) in a sustainable way: no oxidation, no CO2 (DECarbonization).
DEC.SRU™ are designed to recover solvents from the air emissions generated during flexographic printing: by capturing and reusing solvents, these units help reduce VOC emissions and promote sustainable printing practices. This process is cost-effective as it allows for the reuse of solvents, at a fraction of the purchase cost, reducing the need to purchase new ones.
DEC.SRU™ are state-of-the-art solutions that can help flexo printers reduce their VOC emissions and environmental impact!
evolution of technology
DEC has a long history of providing solvent recovery solutions for the flexo industry. DEC introduced the first SRU-Flexo™ in the 1990s and we have continued to innovate: in 2021, DEC launched the 4th generation of SRU-Flexo™, featuring the latest available process technologies, making solvent recovery more accessible and economical for businesses of all sizes.
dare to dream big: DEC.SMS™ (Smart Modular System)
Applying the DEC.SMS™ platform, DEC has streamlined the solvent recovery process, making it cost-effective and efficient, allowing for a simpler and more economical approach to solvent recovery, making SRUs now available to flexo industries of any size, also the smaller ones.
SRU-Flexo™ technology is a revolutionary new approach to solvent recovery that is simple, economical, and effective.
the SRU-Flexo™ process
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 the best-in-class inert-gas DEC.RSG™ regeneration cycle: the system is using an exclusive DEC.PHD™ dehydration process (in gaseous phase), allowing the direct recovery of an anhydrous solvent mix (DEC.LHP™ process).
SRU-Flexo™ is equipped of the DEC.THR™ (energy recovery modules), powered by the DEC.UltraLoop™ process, determining the lowest operating costs in the market.
DEC Solvent Recovery Units (SRUs) are available in both skid modular layout (DEC.SMS™ • Smart Modular Systems, pre-built and pre-tested at our workshops) or in full customizable version (DEC.CBS™ • Custom Built Systems, with on-site erection).
