Default Fryer to cubie?

Got a call yesterday from a new client to collect their oil

How should they go from the fryer to the cubie? What's been working for you? Thank you.

I dont know if thats a good idea unless they are sure the oil is cooled enough to not melt the cubie. If you was closer I'd hook you up with one of my home made collection barrels and a stand.

I don't want to put a barrel outside because they freeze here in winter so I'd have to hook the crane up. I have two barrels at another account, but they stay in a heated outbuilding!

Yep, I understand that. Even here in OK the cold was sometimes an issue.

Looks like cubie + funnel will be too tall. Maybe a 'custom funnel'?

That does not look like a cam-lock fitting on the valve, so no way to put anything on it right? Perhaps invest in a valve that can handle the heat and has a cam-lock fitting? Then you could make a fitting that hooks to the valve with a short piece of hose??

Maybe supply them 5 gal buckets instead of using cubies? Do they produce 5 gal buckets? Thick ones (like drywall mud and home cheapo buckets) will take 200* oil just fine - but, if they snap the lid tight will its hot and it cools off there is a fun science experiment!! I've had a few sources that I would swap 'clean' 5 gal buckets with full buckets when I picked up oil.

The valve is threaded. Not enough room for a cubie. Maybe I'll give them 5 gallon buckets with screw on lids.
