Subject: Solvent extraction equipment

Solvent extraction equipment

I am looking for anyone with experience with the PACE evac 250 or
even the 200.  I sat in on the talk given by Elizabeth Wendelin,
Julie Ream and Cyntia Karnes on the Wallpaper project at Winterthur.
During their talk they mentioned the utility of PACE solvent
extractors on on-site use of solvents. Based on their recommendation
I bought one and we have found it to be just a wonderful device.  I
am presently experimenting with ours using two of the filters PACE
provides.  However, before I present my findings to colleagues here,
I would like to know if anyone has long-term experience with one of
these.  Since we have only had ours in use for a few months, I have
no idea of the longevity or durability of the motor or other
elements, especially the 250's monitoring unit.  Please contact me
if you can share any information.
