AeroVent Aerosol Can Recycling Systems
Newstripe AeroVent aerosol can recycling systems are used to reduce the handling & processing cost of hazardous waste in various chemical processing and manufacturing facilities. They are used to quickly puncture & drain various waste aerosol cans on site for safe chemical disposal. These compact & portable, can disposal units feature Viz-a-Ball indicator check valves that keep the operator / user safe by indicating when the can is completely depressurised & can be safely opened. This feature also prevents the harmful vapours from releasing into the environment after can processing / disposal. Newstripe AeroVent aerosol can recycling systems feature an inbuilt cycle counter for eliminating the requirement for manually counting and guessing when to replace filters. This cycle counter keeps track of the number of cans disposed of which in turn makes it possible to easily identify the life of filter and schedule replacements.
These aerosol can recycling systems feature Safe2Vent filters that have a high composition of carbon media for thoroughly filtering the volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The high composition of carbon media also ensures that the filter remains usable for extended periods. These filters have cellulose media which is 96% biodegradable and aids in the natural decomposition of the filter when disposed of. This feature minimizes the extent of environmental pollution. Newstripe AeroVent aerosol can recycling system's tray design accommodates a range of aerosol cans up to 10.5 inches in length and 3 inches in diameter.

If sprayed near a fire, this hydrocarbon propellant becomes a fire hazard. That is why it is recommended that can recycling system like the Newstripe AeroVent aerosol can recycling system should be used to safely depressurize the aerosol can before disposal.
Do Newstripe AeroVent aerosol can recycling systems require a power source?
No, these aerosol can recycling systems do not require any additional power source for operation. They are completely manually operated that enables operation in remote locations.
Do the brand offer aerosol can recycling system in other variants?
Yes, apart from the single can variant, Newstripe also offers various AeroVent aerosol can recycling systems in 2 & 3 can options. These can recycling systems can process multiple cans simultaneously.
