RE: Recycling Revisited

I don't understand what you'd gain by switching to another
manufacturer. After all the smell of spilled xylol is the same for any
system. I would like to point out that there is another alternative. B&R
makes a metal still. I love mine. By the way you might point out to your
safety committee, that your tissue processor heats xylene too.

Dear Histo Friends,
Please revisit the recycler issue with me.
I am looking for those of you have recyclers, specifically
the B&R and the
Background: We have two B&R recyclers...been using them for
10 years. And
for the last 4 years I get nothing but grief from our
audit and inspection people. They complain about the odors,
which we explain
to them are there because sometimes we spill a little
solvent. They complain
about heating solvents to a distillation point and the
explosions and fires. I explain there have never been fires
with this type of system. I even point out the mounted fire
I am so tired of the same argument 3-4 times a year. And
now the new kink
may be the cool water pumps exceed noise levels!!!!
We recycle about 25 to 30 liters of ethanol and about the
same for xylene.
We like our recyclers and feel confident in their results
and the most
excellent service we receive from B&R. Thanks to Ann, Roger
James Taylor! Our experiences have all been positive.
Despite how I feel about B&R, we are looking at a total
replacement of our
recycling systems and are expecting a CBG demo in this week.
dilemma is TIME!!!! We have two weeks to make a
decision!!!! There are
special funds available RIGHT NOW which will replace all of
with new ones, but we have to decided very quickly.
I have been through the Histonet Archives and read EVERY
ABOUT RECYCLING I could find. I have spent five WEEKEND
and reading, trying to get a broad base for making this
Now that you have heard me whine......here is my request. I
would like to
hear from anyone who has made the switch from B&R spinning
to a CBG type fractional distillation or visa versa!! I need
to know the
compared quality of end product of both units and why you
changed. If you
are in the continental USA, please include a phone number. I
may need to
call and talk. (much faster than my typing!)
