last few. almost have all the money together.


Do you still use pvc for the transfer pipe? Glued joint still holding as long as there no heat

On you blackpipe, did you use teflon tape, pipe dope, or both. that was a problem i had when i had my bioD setup. i used a ton of teflon tape and still had some leaks. i have also heard to try gas pipe tape??

what size bolts/screws did you use/trust to hold that heavy drum om the wall

PVC, yes, works great.
I used pipe dope, teflon tape will leak.
I used 3/8" lag bolts to bolt the wooden cariage to the wall. A 30 gal. barrel of vegi only wieghs like 200+ pounds.

i was going to use a 55 gallon drum. 1/2 be better for the extra weight. how about your supporting beams at the angle. are those just #8 or #10 deck style screws?

It would be best to support a 50 gal. barrel with 4 legs IMO.

Marv,
I use the SimpleCentrifuge CF, since 2006. I have not changed the VO fuel filter on my '87 MB 300SDL with 20K on it and still going. I'm going to run it till it plugs. I carry an extra VW fuel filter and I can change it quickly and with no spilled VO in the engine room. I installed a "T" and shut ball valve in the VO fuel line (pics and description if desired). In the past, I heated the WVO to 140F and a flow rate was at 1/2 gal per min. I now process all the oil COLD. By not using heat, any fats will not be desolved and left in the CF bowl. Thus, making for longer VO filter life.

Clay - Nice looking set up. In the past, I installed an in-line two element heater/a standard hot water thermostat set at 120F. I might suggest NOT using the heater just to see how much FAT can be CF'd out. I use the Simplecentrifgue bowl/ 1/3 hp motor and the rest is a DYI. All my WVO is settled for a few days, then CF'd at ambient temp. (San Diego, CA). 15K on the VO fuel filter so far, two tank system. I've posted some pics of the CF system under "introduce yourself".
