Justrite Prosolv® 4000 Propane Calibration Cylinder Recycling System

Prosolv® 4000 propane cylinder recycling system allows canisters to be safely recycled as scrap steel instead of disposed of as hazardous waste. The activated carbon filter removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the propellant.

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.

After use, calibration gas cylinders should be properly disposed of. This simple to use, manually-operated venting device removes the sealing sleeve and internal valve stem from propane, map, and 3/4" (1.9cm) male threaded calibration gas cylinders (not to be used with oxygen bottles).

The propane cylinder recycling system empties and filters the propellant, taking the cylinder from a hazardous to a non-hazardous state. Rather than incurring costs associated with hazardous waste disposal, users can now recycle the cylinders as scrap steel, resulting in cost savings to businesses and benefits the environment as well. Along with the fuel canister venting device, the Prosolv 4000 system includes an activated carbon filter, 40 certification tags, anti-static wire, safety goggles, and pliers.

Product Features:

  • Safe and cost-effective way to dispose of propane gas cylinders.
  • Pays for itself when you recycle 8 standard propane cylinders.
  • Complies with EPA 40CFR 261.23(a)(6).
  • An activated carbon filter removes VOCs from propellant.
  • Unit can be hand-held or mounted on a tabletop.

Does the Prosolv® 4000 propane recycling system work on all propane cylinders?
Prosolv® is designed to remove the sealing sleeve and internal valve stem from the small 1 pound propane, propylene, mapp, and calibration cylinders that have an EXTERNAL thread.

How long does it take to process a propane canister with Prosolv®?
If the propane canister registers in the GREEN, then removal of the sealing sleeve and valve stem will only take one to two minutes. For more information, please see the instruction manual.

The canister is empty, but the valve stem is stuck. What now?
Check that the sealing sleeve is clear from the Prosolv® pin. Follow the steps again to remove the valve stem, and pull out with needle nose pliers. If that does not work, utilize the Prosolv® Overfill Valve Removal Tool on the completely empty canister. Please contact Customer Service for more details.

How does the filter work?
The activated carbon adsorbs hydrocarbons and removes odor from the gas. It effectively reduces Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from the escaping gas, resulting in total hydrocarbon emissions 75% less than the 300 ppm desired limitations.

When does the filter need to be changed?
The filter needs to be changed after processing 40 canisters. Once all 40 recycling certification tags are used, it's time for a new filter.

Are spent propane cylinders considered hazardous waste?
No, spent canisters with the recycling certification tag inserted are considered empty and are exempt from regulation under 40 CFR 261.6(a) (3) (iv). Scrap metal that is recycled is exempt from RCRA regulation under this provision, so generators do not need to make a hazardous waste determination.

Does the process require any permitting from the Air Quality Control Board?
No, permitting is only required when processing 15 pounds or more per day, which is not the case with the Prosolv® system. Permitting generally applies to gas-filling facilities that deal with welding gases, large gas cylinders, etc.

Why is the anti-static wire necessary?
In many cases, there is an OSHA requirement for grounding of "vessels" to prevent any build-up of static electricity transferred to the system. The Prosolv® system is non-powered, and itself is not capable of generating a static charge.

Why are metal certification tags needed?
Insert the tag into the open valve after processing to guarantee recycling and pickup. The tag proves the valve stem was removed, and it is a certified empty canister.

Can I order more recycling certification tags?
Tags are not sold separately. Each Prosolv® filter comes equipped with 40 tags. Once all 40 recycling certification tags are used, it's time for a new filter.

Can Prosolv® be used to recycle canisters that contain oxygen?
Often times oxygen bottles will have a left hand thread and will not fit the Prosolv® receiver. If the oxygen bottle has a right hand thread, remove the carbon filter and process as you would normally.

How should the carbon filters be disposed?
Due to the variety of chemicals used in aerosol cans, some of which are hazardous, fully saturated carbon filters should be considered hazardous waste—unless independently tested to the EPA's guidelines and is proven non-hazardous. Please dispose of in accordance to local, state, and Federal laws and check with authorities having jurisdiction.
