Default centrifuge advice

I found Bee Clean Super Bee 12000G centrifuge for sale. Its used and pretty clean. No inline heater. Does anyone know anything about them? Any advice or opinion would be appreciated, thanks.

Any gravity feed style centrifuge will most likely be better than the spinner style you saw in my garage. I just picked up a used Absolute Centrifuge and am in the process of replumbing my system after 16000 gallons of successful processing with a pressurized spinner (OC-50 dieselcraft). You've burned this oil. My take so far is that the gravity feed is WAY slower at processing than my spinner. I think guys usually gravity clean at 5-7 gals per hour. I could clean 50 gals in about 1.5hrs with the pressure driven. That said, it was loud (jet engine loud) and had many potential weak points that would result in a 2 gal/min heated oil explosion if a hose blew or something went wrong. I bought my spinner before guys were into the gravity feed style. it very much served its purpose over the 6 years I've been doing this.

I think a fella by the name of Greecemonkey who used to frequent us here a lot had one of those super bees. is it him you are buying from, his comments section says its for sale as of 6 months ago...

haha, really small world if it is his you are looking at. Remember though, depending on your oil source, this DOES NOT replace the heat/settle process I was showing you in my system before you left town. Induction style heat/settle tanks are a must in my opinion, and way less money to implement.

Default Used Motor Oil

I now have access to used motor oil I can run through my centrifuge and clean. What is your folks opinion on how it will run though the BFT system? I think the system will heat it plenty.

No need to heat motor oil ASAIK. and its a bad idea in general to burn it.

Use the motor oil to run the furnace or boiler.
