acetone distillation gun-washer unit



Does anyone have any specific experience with a gun-washer, acetone
distillation combo unit?

The question comes from a company doing light RTM fiberglass manufacturing.
They have to provide some gel-coat touch up to parts as part of the
finishing process, they use paint guns to do it, and they currently just
rinse them out with acetone, spraying it into a bucket and ultimately
disposing of it as hazardous waste.  Their sister plant (that makes the
boats) has a big acetone distillation unit, and they have been very careful
with it to assure they get a good product out of it, so the workers don't
revolt against the "bad acetone."  Given that experience, the light RTM
plant wants to "do things right."

Any help will be appreciated!
