Solvent Recovery Systems

Melchers Malaysia Solvent recovery systems2

Melchers is able to supply distillers, which allow the recycling, and reuse of degreasing and washing solvents. Through a simple distillation process, they separate the contaminants (resins, polymers, pigments, paints, oils, etc.) from the original solvent. The boiling of the solvent is accomplished by a peripheral heating jacket filled with diathermic oil and heated by an electrical element.
The vapours are then convoyed to a condenser cooled by air or water. For ist reuse the condensed solvent is collected in a tank. The contaminants remain as a residue inside a disposable bag named "Rec-Bag" or by tilting the unit itself. The distilled solvent characteristics are not altered by the distillation process, which can be carried on repeatedly.

Doodle Ink

Melchers Malaysia Doodle ink

Melchers supplies the kit for the doodle ink printing technique. Our partner Matsui manufactures hydro-chromic white which is a special binder that changes repeatedly from white to transparent when wetted with water and changes back to the original white when dried, for screen printing onto cotton, polyester, nylon, their blended fabric, nonwoven fabric, and other fabric. Therefore, through printing the binder over a design, it is concealed with white in dried condition and appears when the binder becomes transparent with water. Also, the coating is soft to the touch and excellent in water resistant and rubbing strength so for example, the binder is suited to be used for diaper of baby doll. Further, when coloring agent, Neo Color (coloring pigment paste) is compounded with the binder and printed, it is reversibly changed from colored opaque to colored transparent with water and increased the hiding power of the preprinted design. In addition, Matsui manufactures the binder B-0821 which is a water based Ink for Silk Screen Printing and through printing the relevant Ink onto olefin waterproof paper (UPO), coating paper, etc., its design/pattern changes from White Color to Transparent when wetted with water and changes back to the original White again when dried reversibly.
