RE: [Histonet] FW: Pararffin

From:Rene J Buesa

We used a paraffin bath with a capacity of 15 lbs, that had to be refilled (with about 7-9 lbs daily). To that usage level is to the one I am referring to, and that cannot affect the paraffin characteristics.

If paraffin is heated for extended periods of time or at too high a temperature then the lower melting point components may be lost. This is probably not significant in the normal path lab but may be of importance if large volumes of paraffin are kept heated as a reserve.

Absolutely not! In the same way that may melt lead time and again.
