Subject: [DCHAS-L] Vacuum utility system

A lab worker asks:
Is there any documentation about what we can and cannot use the vacuum utility system for? I remember in a previous building we had a list of suitable applications/incompatible chemicals. I was wondering if we could use it for solvent evaporation.

I think I know what my answer to this question is, but has anyone else developed a list of suitable and unsuitable applications and chemicals for a house vacuum system is?

Thanks for any help with this.
