Katec introduces Aerosolv 360 Aerosol Can Recycling System
Katec Incorporated has announced the product launch of the Aerosolv 360 aerosol can disposal system. With over 24 years of proven success the company says their full line of Aerosolv products continue to lead the industry. The Aerosolv 360 is the result from decades of testing and manufacturing aerosol can recycling equipment. Packed with innovative features and built for extreme use this technology, the Aerosolv 360 raises the bar in both safety and efficiency, making it easier to process aerosol cans.
Key Features Include:
- Alignment cone & two-way vent pin – Directs flow straight into the drum minimizing maintenance
- Activation wheel – Ergonomic design for ease of use
- Built-in Counter – Tracks system use and maintenance schedule
- Integrated Lockout System – Tamper proof design eliminates unauthorized use and secures the unit to the drum
- Fully Enclosed System – Dual seal system seals inside at point of puncture and outside when the can is being processed
- Increase torque – Utilizing a mechanical advantage with rack and paw gear, reducing the effort needed to process aerosol cans
- Relocated Point of Puncture – This new design now features the most efficient point of puncture greatly reducing cleanup and minimizing maintenance.
- Locks to drum – Security feature locks the unit to the receiving drum incorporating a tamper-proof retention plate
- High Strength Insulated Coating – Special nonstick coating minimizes static transfer to the unit while at the same time reducing clean up.
- High Efficiency Carbon Filter – Captures odors and potentially harmful VOCs and now features easy to replace filter components.
- Extreme Duty Filter Base – Cast out of the same T6 aluminum as the system housing this filter base is engineered to last a lifetime.
- Adsorption Indicator – The liquid crystal indicator reacts to the adsorption of VOCs
FREE Recycling Return label – The completely redesigned carbon cartridge is fully recyclable. The user simply boxes the spent cartridges, applies the Recycling Return Label, and ships it off to be recycled.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
