Safe, convenient and compliant, Aerosolv® provides an easy-to-use, effective method of relieving pressure in spent aerosol cans.
It changes them from solid hazardous waste to a non-hazardous, fully recyclable state. This eliminates the expense of solid waste disposal of aerosol cans.
Every 100 cans punctured and emptied by Aerosolv® increases recyclable scrap metal by 25 lb. and reduces solid waste by 10 cubic feet, making Aerosolv® extremely cost effective.
As an added benefit, residual liquids may be eligible for reclamation or recycling, resulting in “waste minimization credits.
The contents of over 4,000 spent aerosols may be collected in just one 55-gallon drum.
The puncturing unit, which depressurizes empty aerosol cans is made of low maintenance aircraft aluminum and threads into the 2″ bung of a standard 55-gallon drum.
All moving parts are 308 stainless steel. It accepts series 200, 300 and 6 oz. cans.
No power source is needed.
Simply insert inverted can, tighten sliding plate to engage, and press handle to pierce a smooth edged hole into the dome of the can.
Carbide-tipped piercing pin withstands repeated use with no visible signs of wear after puncturing 10,000 aerosol cans.
The combination coalescing/carbon filter threads into the .75” drum bung and is comprised of two parts. The lower coalescing portion removes airborne liquids while the replaceable, upper activated carbon portion adsorbs hydrocarbons and odor.
Standard Aerosolv® System includes puncturing unit with plastic sleeve, color changing coalescing/carbon filter, anti-static wire and goggles to enhance safety.
Aerosolv® Super System includes the same items as the standard system with the addition of a lockout and shutoff mechanism that positively seals the unit and the drum when not in use, eliminating the escape of hazardous vapors while the system is at rest.
A padlock with key is included to insure against use by unauthorized personnel.
The Super System is also easier to keep clean as dirt and grime slide off its Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)® coated body.
A convenient, color changing combination coalescing/carbon filter signals saturation and eliminates premature changing of upper activated carbon cartridge.
