SR-Series | Solvent Recovery Systems


The SR-Series by Aptia is a scalable, falling-film, two-stage solvent recovery system that can provide ethanol recovery rates of 100, 200, or 300 LPH and heptane recovery rates greater than 950 LPH.

The innovative, robust design ensures easy operator training and maximum uptime. In the primary stage, Aptia’s custom-designed flow lamination system ensures optimal falling film liquid distribution, which protects the final product from heat degradation and ensures rapid and efficient solvent recovery. An integrated and generously sized 150 gallon buffer tank gives operators a place to store a large volume of solvent during recovery.

The SR-Series can be configured to operate under vacuum or at atmospheric pressure, which gives great application flexibility.

RECOVERY Workhorse

High quality stainless steel construction and robust component selection maximize uptime and recovery capacity. Simple operating procedures and a generously sized buffer tank facilitate efficient processing.
