Re: Recycling of TPM

Before some asks why not distil TPM.

I have tried it with a small solvent recovery system and it does not work
that efficiently.
Isopropanol (IPA) does distil easily and the residue bag is much less costly
to dispose of than lots of drums of soiled TPM.

I find the RPC 300ND resin parts cleans much better with Isopropanol than
TPM anyway.

What I need to do now is design a sealed wash station to stop it

If anyone wants the contact name of a solvent recovery machine I will gladly
dig it out for them.
