“CBG’s Techno-Clean™ S6000T was purchased to recycle the solvent used to wash the equipment used during the manufacturing process. It was shipped and received on the scheduled dates. After the Maintenance prepared the unit, CBG’s certified technician was onsite to ensure it was set-up correctly and to train our employees. The CBG technician was extremely good and personable. In two and a half days we were up and recycling the waste solvent. The recycled solvent has come out clean every time, with an average return of 92% by weight. A second waste stream has been added recently and that one is working out just as well. The Techno-Clean™ S6000T is performing better than expected.“
