RE: B/R Recycler odor


We have noticed this smell from time to time. Why, I could only guess, but possibly some formalin contaminate could the culprit (ie methenamine).

Dear Netters,

We have a B/R Instruments Recycler.  It recycles xylene and alcohol.  Our recycled xylene has a fishy odor ever since day one of using it.  B/R said it is normal to have this ammine smell.  However, I have spoken with other labs that do not have this odor issue.  My question is:  If you own a recycler (B/R OR CBG) are  you noticing a fishy odor when you recycle your alcohol and/or xylene?  Your response is appreciated.

Thanks again,
