Redesign of the glass wash solvent racks to eliminate all air emissions. The design completely captures all materials and eliminates all solvent vapors. The waste solvent is recycled by our manufacturing facility.
The solvent racks were either eliminated or redesigned in all the areas to meet everyones needs.
The redesign will eliminate air emissions by 50-75% and yield a reduction of up to 5 tons.

Additional Information :
Costs associated with the redesign were $30,000 of capital investment. Since the solvent is recycled, there are no disposal fees for the recovered solvents.
