RE: ETOH/ Xylene Recyclers Input Please

From:Nita Searcy

I feel the same about the CBG- no problem using the xylene. I have had many years experience using and it pays for itself in no time!

What machine gave you the xylene that messed up in your processor?  I use recycled xylene from my CBG still all the time without problem.  The quality of my alcohol and xylene runs are great and I wouldn't trade my CBG machine for any other.

Subject: ETOH/ Xylene Recyclers Input Please

Histo Friends-
I'm wondering about the quality of Alcohol & Xylene recyclers from company to company. 
Is anyone using these?  Is there a reason the CBG is approx $6,000.00 more than B/R Insterments?
I know CBG's distilling tank has a flat bottom while B/R's bottom is like a funnel draining all reagent out of the distilling tank.  It seems like to me it would be difficult for CBG's  to empty completely & keep clean on the inside having the flat design. 
Also I have learned, the hard way, not to use recycled xylene on my processor. 
Does anyone have any imput on there preference for or against recyclers and if using one which one is it.
Pros & Cons input would be much helpful.
