I used formalex without a PurgeMaster and it worked ok.  If you store
it a while you can see it brakes the formaldehyde down..can't remember 
how long is recommended.  
Our safety people here at the U of WA 
recommended what they say is a better product called Neutra-Guard.  You
put the powder in the formalin.  My problem is that the Neutra-Guard is so
irritating that I react almost as badly as I do to formalin.  I might use
it for large batches of formalin, but not for is terrible on
throats, eyes, sinuses.
