Pressure Nozzle / Kyle's wmo pressure system

well to start it all out I am using a pre heat oil tank ( 1 gal) @ about 100-120 F w/a 1000w 240v water heater element wired to 120v so it should put out 250 watt (to take the load off the pump) then I have plumed in a nossel preheater and a recirculation loop, to bring the oil up to 180 F once reached the recirc. loop closes and fires the igniter and the Flame baby flame!!!

Waste Oil Filtering / Delavan Recomends

manufacturers attach strainers to the nozzles
during assembly. The hole size in these
strainers is selected to fit the particular size of
nozzle in question. For example, it is common
practice to use 200 mesh strainers (hole size
.0029" square) on nozzles under 1.00 GPH.
Nozzles from 1.00 GPH through 1.35 GPH
are equipped with 120 mesh screen (hole size
.0043" square). Nozzles above 1.35 GPH are
equipped with 100 mesh strainers (hole size
.0055" square). On small nozzles it is
advisable to use a filtering medium which is
finer than any of the screens available and for
that purpose nozzle filters are available with
openings .0013, .0020, and .0025. These will
provide a degree of protection which will
insure greater burner efficiency over a longer
period of time because when plugging occurs
it is the filter and not the nozzle which is

Hey Russ I know your busy, but when you get a chance you think you can add a page for pictures (catagorized of course) I think it will help with some of the people that are new to these concepts

Waste Oil Filtering / micron sizes
« on: December 31, 2008, 04:07:06 pm »
Lets start with some fundamentals before everyone jumps the gun, I have a little info I will share with ya all..... About Micron Sizes and Particle Filtration
    Filtration is the process of forcing a liquid or gas through a porous medium to remove solid particles. The particles are measured or classified in microns. One micron equals 0.0000394".   Absolute-rated filter cartridges will retain at least 99% of particles of a particular micron size.  
Micron                        Openings                     Micron  
Size         Inch             per Inch                 Comparison  
1        0.0000394"         12,000                     Bacteria
10      0.000394"           1,250                  Talcum Powder
20      0.00079"             625             Coal Dust (20 to 90 microns)
44      0.0017"               325                Lower Limit of Visibility
74      0.0029"               200                        Human Hair
105    0.0041"               140                         Table Salt
210    0.0083"               70                          Beach Sand

Hope this helps
