CMM-8RP Sorbent Reactivation Unit
The CMM-8RP is designed for restoration of used sorbent (fuller’s earth or bleaching clay) used in sorbent columns of oil treatment equipment.
In comparison with the CMM-4RP model, the CMM-8RP can restore more than double the amount of sorbent per cycle: 770 kg against 300 kg.
When the sorbent in the columns of oil treatment equipment is saturated, it is loaded into the invertible columns of the CMM-8RP. The reactivation process takes 20 hours. The high temperature and vacuum facilitate the removal of the contaminant from the sorbent. The effluent goes into a moisture separator and then into a buffer tank. The liquid from the separator is removed by a pump.
The sorbent is unloaded by opening the lids of the columns and tilting the columns.
– complete removal of oil from the sorbent;
– reactivated sorbent can again be used to process oil with any degree of contamination;
– a minimum 10 sorbent reactivation cycles are possible;
– after the sorbent is completely exhausted, it can be disposed of without harmful environmental effects.
