Waste Motor Oil / Hello Everyone
« on: September 05, 2013, 04:20:47 pm »
Hello Everyone,

    Figured I would post to let you no im still active and busy in the background. I do not think I will be a active waste oil burner this winter But will be active on this forum to help newcomers (were selling our house) so I be back on natural gas. With that said my projects are still as they stand I will continue to experiment and play around with my Scroll Compressor and Igniter Kit.

as for my current waste oil burner Im gonna using it on my large melting furnace to cast the parts for my scroll compressor project I keep in touch and post updates

Happy Burning And have a safe season

Waste Motor Oil / Waste Oil Burner Prices
« on: December 02, 2012, 06:01:17 pm »
I only ask this question because if fall in line with what i have been working on
and thats is a waste oil burner in a Economy version I just cant beleive you can buy a Commercial/residential version for 1500 - 2000

Me being a machinest and Engineer I knew the prices for these could be accomblish for far less so i design and Quoted one in auto cad to build a Waste oil burner ready to bolt on to your boiler or Furnace  hook up the 1 Power connector, the transformer connector, and oil line and Fire it up

So far I have managed to Offer a waste oil burner ( with some Key Features To help ease maint) and for those who just dont want to mess with the CK burner Kit

I design the unit for a price around 600.00 - 700.00  Which i thought was far and if it was offered to me I would have bought it instead of the CK burner kit

this includes
Compressor built in

Electronics and controllers for Preheaters and oil primary

Customized Electode that mounts to the front of the nozzle/Preheater block and hooks up with Wires instead messing with Buss bars and burner tube. Also no bending there swivel and adjust with a screw insted of bending them into place (come preset and ready)

Has constant level tank built in with External Tumb screw Adjustable level so once again Simple no need to bend Float arm and mess inside the tank

The retention head is also being worked on still but design so No need to remove burner unit you can adjust the retention head position with a tumb screw (still in design)

Many more feature and option I design this to eleminate all the problems I had with my conversion Unit

Now that i have your attention im about to build the first protype and I really want to no if this is even worth my while at this price range

only down fall is I cant offer UL listed because of the cost(but if i get enough people interested I will) so it will fall into your conversion Use at your own risk
But will still maintain Safety Features

and I will offer warrenty on parts i beleive in quality

And to ensure quality done right I will select a few Senior and Long term form members to give my Burner a test
