  40' x 70' with 16' ceilings is no small building. The wall I see is not insulated. Who knows if the ceiling and other walls are insulated. The heater sets in a corner of the building and don't forget about the 3 overhead doors. Maybe 1600 gallons is about right.

 I don't see where using no electric is a problem. There's a lot of drip heater that don't use power.


 Are you wanting to build a heater similar to this style?

  I don't get any carbon build up in my set up. It does create ash build up. I just vacuum it out.

 I don't live in a frozen hell hole where I have to worry! :0)


  Ouch! It's not that bad here. It still get mighty cold at times. I'm sure the pump will hold up. Just looking for someone that has experience moving waste motor oil at or below freezing temps. Looking to find out what ac motor they're using. I don't want to go overboard on an ac motor. Someone here suggested a lower rpm motor. 2hp sounds a little large. What do I know? Thanks for the help.

    Hey Oilburner,  I have watch your videos a lot.
 How does your 1/3hp 2800rpm ac motor handle waste motor oil at freezing temps and below?

I see these ss relays mounted on heat sinks. Would I need to use a heat sink or mount it where my old relay had been?

Hey Russ,
 The relay is 120vac. It's the relay that operators the 500w heater cartridge in the preheater block that is activated from the PID heater controller.

Waste Motor Oil / solid state relay

   Can anyone tell me if I can replace my electromagnetic relay with a solid state relay? Will there be any issues? My heat  controller is a TCG612. I'm on my third relay and wanting to improve the dependability of my set up. Thanks

Russ, Thanks for the chart. if I'm reading the chart right I believe a lower rpm should have more torque. Who knew.

3450rpm is asking a lot for that sbc pump. Slowing down the rpm the motor may not need as much the horse power. If that makes any since.

Thanks for the suggestion. Does a lower rpm motor of the same hp have more torque?

 I was thinking a slower motor 1725rpm like you suggested would be better. I still think it needs more power maybe 1hp. As it is now it will really pulls the motor down to where the motor stalls. The pump is a high volume with 3/4" fitting welded to the pump with 1" suction and discharge hoses. This was built to move large quantizes of 100gal +. Not sure a drill would stand up to that.
