Canister Recycling

Prosolv™ is the safe and economical way to dispose of calibration gas cylinders.

Calibration gases are widely used by an array of industrial and commercial facilities to calibrate gauges that measure gases such as ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and dozens of other specific gases. Laboratories and research facilities calibrate highly sensitive instruments to ensure they are in optimum working condition.

After use, calibration gas cylinders should be properly disposed of and that is where the Prosolv™ system fits in. This simple to use, manually operated venting device removes the sealing sleeve and internal valve stem from propane, map, and calibration gas cylinders (not to be used with oxygen bottles). It empties and filters the propellant, taking the cylinder from a hazardous to a non-hazardous state, helping you comply with EPA 40CFR261.23(a)(6). Rather than incurring costs associated with hazardous waste disposal, users can now recycle the cylinders as scrap steel. The system results in a cost saving to businesses and benefits the environment as well.

Unit can be hand held or mounted on a tabletop and consists of a fuel canister venting device and activated carbon filter. For added safety and convenience, an antistatic wire, safety goggles, sleeve removal tool, and supply of 40 certification tags are included. When all the tags are gone, it's time to reorder a new filter and additional tags.
