there's so much Black out the pipe that it tassels together and floats down like little black feathers, it is not a pratical way to burn oil (and the neighbors won't like ya either).

Waste Oil Filtering / Delavan Recomends
« on: January 02, 2009, 11:03:37 pm »
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

why not Pressure WMO, Pressure WVO, Siphon WMO, Siphon WVO, or just do pressure and siphon and leave it be for now till it gets bigger, I don't think anyone will build a dripper, god help them if they do.

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

Fuel Pre-Heaters / Re: What temp should oil be preheated to?
« on: January 01, 2009, 02:44:52 pm »
well on the wvo.. I donno, but on the wmo I do know that if you go much over 180 f you will start to clump the carbons out of the oil, eventually clogging your nossel

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

I have tried this version with many others, with only bad results, Heats like hell but will NOT clean up, I've done @ least 12 different versions of the burner plate and @ least 3 diff changes on the draft tube....always black!!!!!!
