I certainly wouldn't risk it..... You never know what kind of trace may remain. General rule of thumb is to keep items used in a QT/hospital tank away from your DT, period.

I don't know about your tank, but everything in mine is worth far more than trying to save a couple $$ by using a possibly contaminated heater..... go get yourself another one.
