Solvents play a vital role in modern society and yet the ultimate fate of almost all solvents is to be dispersed into the biosphere or destroyed. Nearly 350f all VOC's entering the atmosphere are derived from solvents, so it is no surprise that solvent producers and users are under severe pressure to reduce or eliminate the volume of solvent released into the atmosphere. By providing practical guidance on the technologies available for solvent recovery and recycling, and reviewing the critical parameters required to achieve good recovery, the "Solvent Recovery Handbook "will show all solvent users how to recover solvents safely, efficiently and cost effectively.
The book also contains physical property data covering the fifty eight most commonly used solvents, plus detailed information on common solvent pairs, in tabular form. This combination of information on solvent properties and solvent recovery, much of it presented in an accessible tabular form, will make this book an essential purchase for all chemical engineers and industrial chemists dealing with solvents.
Solvents have been traditionally chosen on the basis of whether they can do the job effectively and economically but other factors now have to be taken into consideration. Regulations relating to the exposure to solvent vapours have become more stringent - hence the importance of choosing the best solvent for the job as early as possible in the process. This book sets out the physical properties of the fifty most commonly used solvents, along with information on their behaviour during and after use, health and fire hazards, the photochemical ozone creation potential (POCP), and recovery processes including practical aspects of the design and operation of batch stills.
