Waste Motor Oil / Re: Preheater block cleaning, Clean Burn
« on: November 12, 2018, 11:46:56 am »
Is it supposed to sit in gas for that long btw? Or is a week necessary only when it's particularly dirty or something?

When I do burner rebuilds I use solvent and a ultrasonic cleaner. Before I got the ultrasonic cleaner I used just straight solvent and gun cleaning brushes. I would just get after it until clean. I do not like to use gas due to flammability issues.

This is what comes with new Clean Burn heaters and I have been using them for 27 years with zero issues. We put them on the suction side to help protect the pump in conjunction with a stainless steel pickup screen. There are ports to install a vacuum gauge so when it starts pulling 10" clean it. If you go to Lenz website you can see all the different options.

Go with a Lenz filter then you never have to buy another filter again. They are stainless steel washables and last forever.

Do you have a minimum of 30 psi of air going to the burner ?
What happens when you screw down the air regulator ?

I would put the pump on top of the tank and replumb the suction side. I will take a picture of a setup to show you how to make it simple and easy.

Since you need to clean ash from it every so often I would not use sand. If anything I would use fire brick.

Ok so we have an old style Clean Burn burner. I would definitely do a burner rebuild before this heating season. The Clean Burn dist for your area can get you all the parts you need for it.

Is that pump sitting on the floor and pumping out of the bottom of tank ?

The best would be to take several pics and that would be very helpful.

Remove the heating elements and all plugs. Make sure you heat up the plugs first to make removal much easier. Then solvent and gun cleaning brushes. Make sure to get all passages/nooks/crannies spotless before putting it back together. Use a medium strength thread-locker on the plugs/heating elements tighten till snug.

The carbon build up is in the preheat block not the firebox. Spraying water into a firebox is a terrible idea.

Waste Motor Oil / Re: Transfer Pumps?
« on: February 18, 2018, 10:22:24 pm »
Well we have had temps as low as -38*F this Winter so far. My customers are pumping anywhere from 55-500 gallons at a time when they have to go get oil and they do not want to spend hours/days moving this volume of oil with a hand pump.

Not all of the Redline pumps are recommended for cold oil. The one for cold oil has a 3/4 horse, 1,140 RPM Baldor motor that costs $500+ by itself. The pump moves approximately 16 GPM. I have a couple of customers that purchased this pump from Redline and they are happy with it. Yes they are expensive but they work.

I have been doing nothing but waste oil heater/boiler sales and service for 27 years here in Montana. I also design oil storage and pumping systems for my customers. Some of those customers are burning up to 15,000 gallons a Winter and they need a reliable no screw around system that works.

Those Rotodel pump are not vehicle oil pumps. Rotodel is a manufacturer of a gear pumps for a variety of applications. The Baldor motors on some of their setups are the best you can buy and they are not cheap. They are not welding any fittings on since the pump heads already come with NPT threads.

You are pumping cooking oil in what appears to be a mild climate which is totally different from waste motor oils, gear lubes, etc. I only use air diaphragm pumps here in Montana to transfer cold bulk oil from outside to the inside burn tank. A hand crank pump would be ridiculous to even attempt with cold oil.
