RE: ETOH/ Xylene Recyclers Input Please


I have an SLV-99U recycler that does formalin, alcohol, xylene and xylene
substitutes as well as a formalin only machine.  The recycled alcohol comes
off between 94.5% to 97% depending on my waste collection. You have to
subject alcohol to other processes to get absolute 100% so no still will
give you that quality. The xylene I recover however is more pure than the
stuff out of the bottle.  The new machine that does all four is no larger
than the original alcohol/solvent machine and is just as easy to use.  If
you are looking to upgrade I would give CBG a call and look at the new unit.
I think you'll really be pleased will the quality.

What model of the CBG do you have Charles?  We have a really old one and are

concidering an upgrade.  The only thing we can't use the recycled xylene on 
is the T.T. automatic coverslipper.  How do you like the recycled alcohol?  
Do you get 100% pure back?
