New Pig Corporation’s PIG Aerosol Can Recycler can easily puncture aerosol cans, rendering them exempt from hazardous waste disposal regulations when properly emptied, eliminating the risk and expense associated with pressurized aerosol disposal, the company says.
Designed for use with domed, mini, standard and jumbo aerosol cans, the Recycler threads directly into a 2″ bung on a standard 30- or 55-gallon steel drum. An angled carbide pin punctures cans cleanly without leaving jagged edges. Residual liquids drain directly into the drum and a two-piece coalescing filter/carbon cartridge captures the odors and potentially harmful VOCs released by punctured aerosol cans.
The filtering media in the PIG Aerosol Can Recycler features a timestrip indicator to take the guesswork out of cartridge changeouts. The unit also includes a ground wire to help prevent static electricity buildup. When used correctly, the unit can minimize worker injuries caused by fire, explosion or VOC release from improperly emptied or unemptied cans.
