Key features

Key features

  • Our solvent recovery systems can be designed for single-duty or multi-purpose operation that allows processing of various different streams in batch, campaigns or continuous processes. 
  • To ensure that you achieve low life-cycle costs and a short payback period, our hybrid process systems optimally combine various technologies such as distillation, absorption, film evaporation, liquid-liquid extraction, crystallization, and membrane separation. 
  • We assist you with DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ, and other GMP or FDA requirements.
  • We have delivered numerous skid-mounted solvent recovery systems to some of the world's leading companies.
