Solvent Recovery Systems

Wintek’s vacuum solvent recovery systems reclaim precious solvents during industrial processing. Our systems are custom-designed by Wintek engineers to recover solvents by optimizing the configuration of condensers, receivers, vacuum pumps, and controls in a packaged system. All components arrive on site pre-piped, pre-wired, and factory tested to assure proper operation. Systems can meet ANSI B31.3 with materials in carbon steel, stainless steel, or Hastelloy.

Wintek’s solvent recovery vacuum systems are used in many industries including chemical, pharmaceutical, metal powders, flavor and fragrance, and PET solid state.  In many cases we are also sealing a liquid ring pump with one of these high vapor pressure solvents to maximize recovery and reduce potential contamination or environmental concerns. This requires an extensive knowledge of how equipment such as boosters are affected when sealing a pump with a potentially high vapor pressure solvent, even when operating at deep vacuum.

Used in conjunction with the following equipment:

  • Vacuum Dryers
  • Batch Reactors
  • Filter / Dryers
  • Granulators

Types of solvents Wintek systems can


  • methanol
  • ethanol
  • isopropyl alcohol (IPA)
  • toluene
  • xylene
  • acetonitrile
  • mineral spirits
  • decane
  • limonene

Our solvent recovery systems come with:

  • Complete solvent recovery systems: condensers, receivers, vacuum system, controls
  • Unlimited life-time phone technical support with fast response
  • Tube-side condensing for easier maintenance
  • Visual confirmation of condensing
  • Designed to facilitate deep final vacuum
  • Cost Effective vacuum system providing process reliability
  • Many options to customize to customer requirements
