Hi Joanne,

We have had a formalin recycler for at least 8 or 9 months now and the
formalin that we have been processing is ONLY the formalin from our
processing units.  For that formalin is has performed very well.  The real
drawback was the fact that you could only process the formalin from the
tissue processors so it was not a cost effective deal to us.  BUT, they
have come out with a formalin recycler now that will supposedly recycle all
of the formalin and disinfect at the same time.  We are due to swap out the
unit in a couple of weeks and rent it on a monthly basis until we are sure
that it will fit our needs.  We are a relatively small hospital (400 bed). 
We have had their xylene recycler for several years now and we love it.  It
is very user friendly, easy to process and the xylene is very pure.  We
reuse the xylene for everything and have never had any problems.  Hope this
