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 tri-yearly safety
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 "dangers" of
explosions and fires. I explain there have never been fires or explosions
with this type of system. I even point out the mounted fire extinguishers.
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 and especially
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. My biggest
dilemma is TIME!!!! We have two weeks to make a decision!!!! There are
special funds available RIGHT NOW which will replace all of our recyclers
with new ones, but we have to decided very quickly.
I have been through the Histonet Archives and read EVERY SINGLE MESSAGE
ABOUT RECYCLING I could find. I have spent five WEEKEND hours researching
and reading, trying to get a broad base for making this decision.
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 band distillation
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!)
