RE: CBG recycler

From:Laurie Colbert

We demo-ed both the CBG recyclers and a formalin recycler from Creative Waste Solutions.  We purchased an alcohol/xylene recycler from CBG but purchased the formalin recycler from Creative Waste.  Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages, but we found the system from Creative Waste to be much more simple to use and it just fit into our work routine better.  

The formalin system from Creative Waste is not a distillation system.  It uses gravity and a system of filters to recycle the formalin.  You get the same concentration and volume back as you put in.  You do not need to rebuffer the formalin.  We do not recycle really dirty formalin - we dispose of this waste, but you get waste with the CBG recycler, too.  I know this system sounds too good to be true, but it has worked for us.  I also checked with other labs who have been using the system for several years and they are happy with it.  I think it is worth checking out (and I am not affiliated with the company).

Their number is (888) 795-8300.

So far, I've heard nothing but good thing about the CBG formalin, alcohol,
xylene recycler. Can anyone give me any cons, beside the fishy smell?

Any suggestion is very helpful
