Could someone please advise me on established guidelines for changing the alcohol on the processor. We process a very small amount of blocks weekly on our ASP300S. Approximately 20 blocks per week. We have decided to use a hydrometer to test our 70% thru 100% alcohols, rather than base our changing reagents on number of blocks processed. My questions are, does a (1) % point decrease necessitate a change ? What are the parameters for changing each alcohol ?
Thanking you in advance,
