When you are planning for a new installation of a solvent trap system, it can be difficult to decide which type is best for your facility. The decision will be mostly determined by the types of solvents being used in the process. This article will discuss the different type of traps that are available and their pros and cons.

A solvent trap is a device that is used to capture and contain fluids that are being discharged from a solvent-based process. This type of device is typically used in industrial applications where there is a need to control the release of hazardous or flammable materials. Solvent traps can be made from a variety of materials, but they must be able to withstand the chemical action of the solvent being used seet the details here more


There are three main types of traps: Evaporation, absorption, and condensation. Evaporation traps work by evaporating the solvent from the sample before it has a chance to reach the column. This can be done either by using a cold trap or by using a vacuum pump.

Absorption traps work by absorbing the solvent into a porous material, such as activated charcoal. Condensation traps work by condensing the solvent onto a cold surface, such as a metal coil.


When it comes to choosing the right solvent trap, there are a few things you need to take into account. First and foremost, you need to decide what kind of solvent you’ll be using. This will determine the size and type of trap you need. For example, if you’re using a water-based solvent, you’ll need a different trap than if you’re using an oil-based solvent.

Once you’ve decided on the solvent you’ll be using, the next thing to consider is the size of the trap. Solvent traps come in all different sizes, so it’s important to choose one that’s big enough to accommodate the amount of solvent you’ll be using. If you’re not sure how much solvent you’ll need, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and choose a larger trap.

That said if SHTF and the zombies come, make your own decision. 🙂
