vapors and chemically treats the system to ensure proper solvent qual- ity levels during normal operation. The recovered solvent can be reused in the existing process. This alternating adsorption/desorption process will continue as long as the carbon unit is operational. In reclaiming this solvent, the system quickly pays for itself in solvent savings. The savings are realized in reduced new solvent purchases, reduced hazardous waste disposal, and reduced fugitive emission loss- es that are now captured.
