Brent Industries Inc. of Brent, Alabama, a large industrial laundry company, commissioned PESCO-BEAM to retrofit an existing system to increase throughput from 60 liters per minute to 106 liters per minute in 1994. Brent also purchased two systems from us in 1995 and 1996.
PESCO continues to advise Brent in the operation and maintenance of these systems. At each facility Brent processes 135,000 liters per day each of contaminated xylene, which would otherwise have to be incinerated or disposed of as a hazardous waste. The PESCO systems recover 98% of the solvent for reuse in their own laundry

This trailer mounted light oil (Mist Oil) recovery unit was designed to operate at different locations to recover light oil from the cold rolled aluminum industry. It was designed to operate at 350 gph and was first commissioned for a project to recover in spec mist oil at a facility in Ohio (Ormet). The mobile recovery unit is currently operating in Tennessee.
It is our belief that this system is the most sophisticated mobile recovery unit currently in existence. With a forced circulation evaporator, four (4) fractionation columns, a two stage vacuum system, a thermic oil heater and the operating control room – all loaded inside a standard 53’ tractor trailer.

The waste oil recovery plant for the Fallon site was designed to process 800 gph. While the plant is still in the early stages of startup and run, it has already achieved steady rates of 1,200 gph, and is producing very clean recovered oil for reuse.

PESCO has designed and built a 3 column fractionation system for Sartomer, which separates Toluene and Heptane from monomers and from each other. This system was commissioned in June of 2000, and is recovering clear on spec product for re-use in the plant. The system can operate unattended once it is started up and stabilized. PESCO continues to be under contract to operate the system on an as needed basis. The PESCO technician starts the plant up on Monday and then returns on Friday to shut it down.

PESCO designed, built, and commissioned a 1000 liter per hour used crankcase oil recovery system for Wren Oil in 1996. This unit, which includes a forced circulation evaporator and a thin film evaporator, produces diesel, light lube, and #4 fuel oil from waste crankcase oil. Wren Oil is a repeat customer and has commissioned several systems and system upgrades from PESCO, with the most current project just getting started.

PESCO designed and built a Methanol recovery system, including 2 distillation columns for Absorption Technologies, Inc. Operating at 600 gph, the system effectively recovers 99+% pure Methanol from a mixture of methanol, water, and dissolved solids. The material is a byproduct from the production of their super absorbent polymer (Zeba) which is manufactured from corn starch. ATI, initially leased a methanol recovery system from PESCO.
Telos Oil Refinery of Israel has a PESCO system that went into operation in the summer of 2003, and produces fuel for large engines. The system was the first to include Regenerating Clay technology. The system was designed to be able to produce 900 l/hr., and regularly attains sustained rates of 1,500 l/hr.

PESCO designed and built a >1,000 GPH hydrocarbon-solvent-asphalt separation system, which includes a forced circulation and a thin film evaporator for Hebert, which went into operation in September of 1999. The system can process at a 40% higher rate than design capacity. The Hebert plant recovers d-limonene and asphalt from a railcar cleaning operation. The d-limonene is reused in the cleaning process and the asphalt is sold as product.
Prillaman recycles liquid hazardous wastes from furniture manufacturers, paint manufacturers, polymer manufacturers, and other industries and has been doing this successfully for 20 years. They have greatly expanded their operation in the last 3 years. They now process about 60,000 liters per day, and they return 50% of the recovered solvents to the original waste generator, the rest being sold in the chemical market. PESCO has designed and built five out of six of Prillaman's waste recovery systems, including two thin film evaporators, two fractionation columns, and a molecular sieve. PESCO has operated one of them for Prillaman.
Prillaman is a subsidiary of Ellis & Everard, a publicly traded company from the United Kingdom.
Note: Prillaman was acquired by Van Waters Rogers (VOPAC) in 2001, and the plant was shut down, but may recently have been restarted.
