Maintaining efficient, low-cost and sustainable operation of any laboratory is of vital importance to all concerned with high quality production of slides and managing costs per test or slide.

CBG fractional distillation solvent recyclers offer you the ability to recycle and reuse xylene, xylene substitutes, alcohol and formalin from your tissue processor(s) and/or stainer(s).

Positive Impacts:


Cost savings occur through major reductions in solvent purchases and reduced waste solvent disposal costs. Valuable tech time is no longer needed to order solvents as you become your own solvent supplier.
  • Your laboratory can expect an annual reduction of solvent purchases and disposal cost by upwards of 95 % by reusing clean solvents recovered from the solvent recycler and by reducing your overall waste volume. Purity of recovered solvent is at least 99%.

  • Reduce storage space needed for both fresh solvents and waste solvents.


CBG solvent recyclers are designed as a push-start and walk-away system. Less than 15 minutes is needed per run, including time for loading the waste solvent into the unit and hitting the start button. The operator can now walk- away -- the unit operates automatically and will monitor itself through the shut down phase.
  • CBG solvent recyclers include a fully automated microprocessor to control cycle temperatures and run-times. The units are equipped with automatic start, electronic fill pump (five and ten gallon models), automatic decontamination process at solvent change, automatic waste disposal and automatic shutdown.


Greening the supply chain is an essential element for any laboratory or health care facility. Recycling and reusing your solvent will directly impact sustainability. By reducing hazardous waste, you will also directly reduce or maintain a low waste generator status. If you are incinerating xylene, you will be eliminating any related greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Waste solvent recycling also can increase your team's productivity: reusing recycled solvent means you may reduce the amount of federal, state, and local Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) reporting you must provide, allowing employees to use their time more efficiently.


Safety and safety compliance have the highest priority at CBG. Our solvent recovery systems are designed for safety and compliance with all applicable government and regulatory standards and specifications. Our solvent recycling systems are ETL listed to UL 61010 and UL 2208 for use in non-hazardous environments. CBG solvent recycling units are also approved to Canadian standards (CSA) for 120 V configurations and to CE Standards.
  • Automatic shutdown sensors are standard on CBG system

  • Satisfies the latest Uniform Fire Code requirements for solvent distillation units

  • No water hook-up or special ventilation required

  • No hot surfaces – cool to the touch

  • Built-in spill containment
