Waste Motor Oil / solid state relay
« on: January 24, 2018, 11:50:01 am »
   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

What do you call this kind of drip heater that they pump in air? Is it injected, pumped, ram, inducted?

I'd like to research it but, I don't know what to call it.

Waste Motor Oil / let the fun begin

Made the first step today. Picked up a EnerRoyal fuel oil furnace with a tank. The burner is a Beckett AFG. Going to convert it into a siphon system.  Next step will be to buy a nozzle kit.

Waste Motor Oil / siphon or pressure

The waste oil furnace I will be building will use a fuel oil furnace. Safe, reliable, and low mantenence. These are the quailties I'd  like out of my wmo burner. I just don't know which nozzle to choose for my set up. I would think not having not to deal with compressed air would be a plus, but if it's the better system I'd go that way.
Any thoughts about the 2 style nozzles and why?

Say hey,
I'm a southern Michigan boy. Currently on vacation in the sunny southwest. Looking forward to get back home to start collecting parts to turn a fuel oil furnace into a wmo burner.
