Recycling & Disposal Options:
1. Used Motor Oil Collection Centers
For small quantities of uncontaminated Dielectric Coolants, the coolant maybe simply dropped off at a local motor oil or hydraulic oil waste recovery centers. All of our dielectric coolants are proprietary synthetic hydrocarbons which can be fully recycled using standard waste oil reprocessing. If your local collection center has any concerns or questions about our materials please have them contact our support team 1.725.218.1957 during normal working hours.
2. Engineered Fluids Recycling Program
Engineered Fluids encourages all of our customers to participate in our Dielectric Coolant Recycling Program to ensure that all used Coolants are properly and safely re-purposed and disposed. A key component of our program is the testing of a customer’s used coolant. The purpose of this testing is to prevent improper disposal that could represent a danger to the environment. Contaminants like oils, PCBs, heavy metals, and similar toxins should never be released into the environment, and it is important that customers with quantities of used Coolant always request testing prior to disposal. Any waste coolant which tests positive for contamination with these substances and similar compounds must be disposed of through toxic chemical processors capable of properly handling and disposing of these materials. Engineered Fluids can put you in touch with processors and provide them with any information they require for their processing.
If the testing determines the used coolant has been contaminated with any form of mineral or white oils, then all of the used Coolant must be disposed of in accordance with your country and states hazardous waste disposal laws. In the USA, this typically requires you to contract with a hazardous waste disposal facility that accepts hydrocarbon (oil, motor oil, etc.) waste.
