Waste Motor Oil / Re: Oil Suitability - Testing?

Good to hear that you figured out the problem Gerry.  Sounds like a nice digital gauge you got a hold of there, that should help keep track of what is going on with your pressure.

Greetings  Gerry!

I cant say that I have ever had problems with getting oil to burn.  Maybe I have just been lucky.  I run my PID nozzle heater at 200F or 93C and havent had any problems.  If you run known good used motor oil through it does it burn fine?  Is it just with this poor quality that you are having the problem?

Welcome Gomerboy!  The waste oil community isn't a crazy busy place, but hopefully you find some answers to your questions. 

Thanks for stopping by!

800kb is a bit small these days.  I have increased the size to 3M.  Can you give it a try again?

Unfortunately spammers were getting out of hand.  had to tighten things down.  I can see if I can give you rights without jumping through all of the hoops.

Welcome Dwatbesgarage!

Is this happening after running the heater for a longer period of time?  Like at least a half hour?  It takes a while to warm up the inside of the heater and get everything up to temp so all of the oil burns.  Be sure everything is getting good and hot.  I would think as long as everything is good and hot it shouldnt smoke after shutting down.

Great video RustyCreekFabrication.  It is so amazing what you can do with some steel and the right tools.  Great job and thanks for sharing!

I do believe you can get an efficient burn with a drip style and no forced air, although I have never done it before myself.  Check around the forum and see if you can gather some ideas on what might be causing your incomplete burn.  Good luck!

Nice!  Cold weather rolled in here in a hurry.  14 degrees F here in MN tonight.  Not supposed to be this cold in October!  Glad to hear you got things burning well.  Stay warm, stay safe!

Greetings Mancavebuilder!  Glad you stopped by!

Interesting question on the Efel stove.  I dont think I have ever heard of anyone using one with waste oil, but it would be interesting to see if it would work.

Enjoy the forum.  It is more of an archive of info than a thriving discussion spot, but even still, there is some good info out here.

If you end up doing anything, please let us know!

Good luck!

I cant remember the differences, but this is a recommended one for waste oil and are often times used for metering pumps as well:

I'm not saying they wont, but I don't think the stock pumps are designed for pumping waste oil.  I ran my pressure system for a long time and never had any problems with whatever was on it.

Sounds like you have some perfecting to do to keep your fuel line hot.  Hopefully you can find a way to keep it warm and keep the flame running smooth as well.

Keep up the good work!

If you are running a stock beckett, I would highly recommend a CK kit:

Yes, it costs some money, but once you have it you will be burning WMO so easily that the all of the free fuel will pay for it in no time.

Yea, ceramic wool might be a good option as well, but I think the brick would come up to temp pretty quickly as well.  Might have to experiment with both.

Greetings and welcome to the forum Parkland!

Are you running your becket stock?  If so, have you looked at the CK burner modification?  With preheated oil, you should have instant starts with WMO.

I think you are on the right track with needing something to contain or shoot the fire on to.  From what I understand any kind of steel will break down pretty quick.  Fire brick might be a good option.
