SolventTrapsvoc Solvent Recovery System

SolventTrapsvoc with the DryVap Evaporation System

Protecting the environment from harmful solvent vapors

System Overview

The Horizon Technology SolventTrapsvoc Solvent Recovery System is designed to condense and collect solvent vapors which are generated by Horizon’s DryVap® Concentrator System.

Using a vacuum pump, the solvent vapors are pulled through a cold condenser coil, where the solvent vapors are chilled and converted back into a liquid form. The solvent then flows by gravity into a round bottom glass flask. When the flask is full a stopcock can be turned to drain the collected solvent into a disposal vessel.

Designed specifically to handle the volume of solvent vapor generated by the DryVap Concentrator System, the SolventTrapsvoc System operates at 0C using a chiller and is capable of condensing and capturing approximately 90-95% of the solvent vapor (95% for dichloromethane (DCM)).

Benefits include:

  • Enables regulatory compliance for air emissions
  • Protects workers from exposure to harmful solvent vapors
  • Keeps sensitive lab instruments protected
  • Recaptured solvent can be redistilled or sold

When combined with the DryVap Concentration System:

  • Typical solvent volumes of 180-200 mL of methylene chloride (DCM) can be evaporated in 50-60 minutes run times
  • The end point can be automatically detected and the process ended when the endpoint is reached
  • The sample can be evaporated directly into GC autosampler vials, eliminating transfer from the evaporation vessel
  • Improves the workflow and enables compliance
