Re: [Histonet] Cleaning molds

From:Rene J Buesa

I am sure you were "taken for a ride" with that opinion. There is no way the small amounts of paraffin left in the molds are going to significantly impact in the tubing, specially when the retort is hot and will melt it all. Even sometimes there is a remnant in the retorn (from the processing) that is usually more than what you can add with the cassettes. Who told you that was trying to blame you for something s/he could not know how to repair.
  But, in any event, you can do nothing about that now, just bear in mind for the next time you are told the same nonsense.

  At the previous facility I worked at, we daily cleaned our mold in the
cleaning cycle until we had a problem with the processor and was told by
the field service engineer and then the company that doing this was hard
on the machine with all of the excess paraffin in the tubing. I do not
know if that has any merit, but, we quit doing that and never had that
type of problem again. Just a thought!!
