I believe the idea is to have your water bath about 5 to 10 degrees
cooler than
your paraffin's melting point.

Recently we were cited for not measuring the temperature of our water
baths (tissue floatation baths).  We use Richard Allan Type 9
I am trying to put down a range of acceptable temperatures for our
quality control.  Any ideas?
