    Re: WVO Upflow Design ok?

    The issue I see with your system is that your filter will need to be changed at some time. How are you going to access them inside a 200L HDPE drum?
    Having the drums "open topped" is a problem as it...

    Re: washing with heat

    Cade,
    Keep up the good work.
    Once you have this one completed, perhaps you could do a test on the already settled and filtered biodiesel, for comparison.

    This is my up-flow settling system. The 3 drums are steel 200L drums. All in-tank piping is polythene. Inter-tank piping is food grade vinyl tubing with hose clamps. The oil is pumped to the...

    Re: washing with heat

    I look forward to your test results. It may take some time for the byproduct to drop out after the methanol has gone. I would like to see how much has dropped out in 12 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours...
  6. Re: How do I plumb in a heat exchanger?

    Mark,
    Franz is your fixation, it is not a "necessary part" of your conversion. It is the CAUSE of most of your problems.
    I am fed up with your stubborn adherence to YOUR Mantra of having a Franz...
  7. Re: How do I plumb in a heat exchanger?

    Your Franz is sucking all of the heat from your fuel, before it gets to the CAV.
    As stated before, (on another thread I think) install a small prefilter like this
    2266

    before the heat exchanger....
  8. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Brass reducing tees are available in a number of sizes. Yes, tee off from the heater circuit. Check the fuel temperature from a cold start, it should rise in accordance with the coolant temperature....
  9. Re: My Ambient/ Room temperature Biodiesel Production

    Tilly, Can you please try the reaction with oil that has not warmed up to 40+C? How about waiting until you get home before adding the oil to your reactor (oil that has been stored out of the sun)....
  10. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Mark, Different oils have different viscosity curves and melting points, so check for your specific oil, not just "one vege oil"

    Re: Waste Glycerine in WA

    David,
    I am sorry, he does not take NaOH catalysed byproduct, only KOH catalysed byproduct (used as stock feed supplement)

  12. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Helton sent me a dual coil biofuel one for testing after I approached them offering to test one on my 300D with a 4 channel recording thermometer.
    I recorded coolant in / out and fuel in/out...
  13. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    I am sure that 83Patrol was referring to a flat plate heat exchanger. They are designed with heat transfer efficiency in mind, unlike the "shower units" like the Helton and other similar units.
    My...

    Re: Waste Glycerine in WA

    Members of WARFA have someone who collects the drums from one member's home. We have our meeting this afternoon and I will ask for his contact details.
  16. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    If your Helton heated oil is losing sufficient heat to cause fuel flow restriction issues after passing thru just 70cm of hose, then you need a better heat exchanger! Perhaps you might add some...
  17. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Mark search for motorised ball valves. I purchased some for my home hydronic system and They are full bore valves which do not cause any significant flow restriction when fully open. They are...
  18. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Mark, I would have thought that the Franz would have the biggest volume of fuel. If you have one of the Heltons it should only have a tiny amount of fuel in it compared with a fuel filter or even...

    Re: Problems with 1HDT on SVO

    No Mark it is a 5 cyl IDI engine with an inline IP.
    Harvey, does your C250 have O rings in the fuel system? Be prepared to replace them at least annually. if using biodiesel, and possibly 2 yearly...
  20. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Change the location of the changeover switch to just before the stock filter, that way you only need to purge that filter.
  21. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    I would only ensure that there is a transparent case coarse filter prior to the lift pump (if your engine uses one) or prior to the main fuel filter. I use the one that is standard equipment on a...
  22. Re: Pre Heating WVO before injector pump

    Mark, that heat exchanger is similar to the Helton one I tested several years ago. If you need a lot of heat, then a FPHE is the solution. The same amount of work installing it even a 10 plate FPHE...

    We can all make mistakes, and kick ourselves for missing the simplest possible cause. So don't feel too bad, especially while we ROTFLOAO :o;)

    Tilly,
    I checked the pulleys and tensioner shock absorber when I was replacing the thermostat, coolant, etc. All were in good order.
    I will include these checks as part of my routine oil & filter...
