Abstract
Safety must be a prime factor in the design of any solvent recovery system involving ketones. Thus, it was a key consideration in Vara International's design of a system for the magnetic audio/video tape division of the Acme Group of Companies in Hong Kong. The presence of ketones presented a second design consideration as well; solubility of the solvents in water meant that achieving their full recovery and reuse would require a stripping/dehydration distillation system.
