Newstripe Inc. says it has redesigned its Aerovent 3 aerosol can disposal system to incorporate improved gaskets, seals and can housing. According to the company, these improvements make the environmentally friendly Aerovent 3 even more durable and easier to use.

The product is designed to solve the problem of disposing of aerosol cans as hazardous waste. After being processed in the Aerovent 3, the cans can be recycled as scrap steel or discarded as regular trash.

The Aerovent 3 mounts on any 30- or 55-gallon drum. Insert up to three aerosol cans, close the lid and lower the handle; in less than 10 seconds, the Aerovent 3 punctures and drains the cans.

The unit’s non-sparking design includes cobalt piercing tips and anti-static grounding cable. The Aerovent 3 totally encloses the cans being punctured, keeping the operator out of harm’s way. The vent filter eliminates VOC and hydrocarbons from being released into the atmosphere and being inhaled by the operator, Newstripe says.
