Welcome to wasteoilheaterforum.com
Your source for burning waste oil for heat.

Spam activity has been on the increase.  I have tightened registration security as well as beginner post security to help prevent a flood of spam on the forum.  I hope this doesnt complicate things too much for people wanting to post.

The 2015/2016 heating season has arrived.

Leaves are turning and temps are dropping.  Time to get the oil burner ready!

Enjoy the forum, have fun, and most importantly be safe!

Hydraulic oil will not help. You are going to have to mix it since there is no way to adjust preheat temp on a EnergyLogic.

I'm enjoying your videos and learning a lot.

Maybe I can get mine to work like yours!  :D

I am always amused by the videos with all the PPE in them.  I really wonder if anyone uses all that stuff or only for the videos.

Thanks for the update Rapidrob.  Sounds like you've got things burning good and clean.  Isn’t it great to get free fuel?!   I was just telling my wife how nice it is to see the power bill decline in the summer months.  You must be done with the heating season by now, huh?

If you get a chance sometime and can snap some pictures, I'd love to see what your heater looks like.

Havent tried a centrifuge myself.  I have found that screening for the big stuff and filtering for the small stuff has worked well for me.  A siphon system is much more tolerant than a pressure system when it comes to filtering.  Since switching to a syphon system, I have had really good luck.

Greetings Marvin!

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a member.  It's great to see people from all over the globe learn and contribute to the site.

Enjoy and stay safe!

Hey Russ, thanks for the welcome. 

It is indeed a nice site to learn from and contribute to.  Most other sites are focused on WVO.  This one is geared towards burners which is nice.

Its not easy to burn waste oil. Same as burning heavy fuel oil. It takes a lot of TLC to make it work. But when it works, its great!

To be honest, this is my first time. 

Over here, they burn the waste oil straight without filtering, which is good for the traders who are selling the pumps :)

BTW, do you only work on Bentone burners ( GREAT burners very popular here ) or do you also work on other brands like weishaupt, riello, baltur, etc...?

Thanx!
Im using an oil separator from De Laval. An regular filter can never clean the waste oil to run in a burner like this. Thay are just for big stuff like mouses and stons.
Here is a video of it.
