Abstract

Large amounts of Acetone and other similar volatile solvents are used in a wide ranging of industrial applications. In most cases, such liquids are commonly used for cleaning purposes and become contaminated with other chemicals, oil, water and small solid material. These solvents are discarded at substantial expense to the producers. In this project, a small –scale-recycling system is designed with the objective of achieving acceptable level of purity for reuse in a cleaning operation.
