No, I have not heard that recycled xylenes is harmful to processors!
Interesting take--wonder where that might have originated?  I do know that
recycled xylenes become more pure with
recycling...therefore,,,theoretically, at least, this would improve their
performance for removing alcohol for paraffin infiltration.  I would not
think there would be any more problem with them than with commercial
xylenes.  In fact, it might even be better... the processors need yearly
maintenance with replacement of O-rings, etc for optimal performance
regardless of solvents used.....sharon osborn
