    Re: washing with heat

    Hi smithy,

    My testing as well as Neutral's showed the split was about 2/3 of the recoverable methanol is in the byproduct layer and 1/3 of the recoverable methanol is in the biodiesel layer.
    But...

    Re: washing with heat

    Hi smithy,

    Exactly the point.
    You still do not know that biodiesel can not be produced at room temperature. I think Mark needs to come back and explain to you again that you can not make...

    Re: washing with heat

    Hi Cade,

    Indeed, we are lucky.
    If it had not been for Mark, it is doubtful that anyone else would have realized that you can not make biodiesel at room temperature using the "standard" production...

    Hi Cade,

    There are two main causes for soap being produced. The first and sometimes most significant cause of soap production in a Base only procedure is when the FFA's are neutralized and...

    Hi Cade,

    Yes, I finally realize that and have removed that reference




    That seems to be the best solution. I know my "wash" procedure is not "world class" and no one else has responded. I...

    HI smithy,

    Please describe the experiments you have performed that supports your contention that triglycerides are prone to making emulsions when washing very high conversion biodiesel.

    I will...

    Re: washing with heat

    Hi smithy,So what do you think the triglycerides are forming an emulsion with throughout the biodiesel that the monoglycerides are not forming an emulsion with if it is not the water?

    Please show...

    Re: washing with heat

    Hi smithy

    You have that confused. It is monoglycerides that are said to possibly cause an emulsion problem, not triglycerides



    It is called something similar to the 5% prewash all over the...

    Re: washing with heat

    Hi Cade,

    Biodiesel and un-reacted oil are miscible in all proportions. In other words, They will mix together in all proportions and are not easily separates once they are mixed together. Like...

  12. Re: Minus 7 deg C Biodiesel Reaction

    Hi Smithy,

    You are confusing the initial part of the reaction where most (but not all) of the reaction occurs very quickly, with the reaction going as far as it can go which typically takes much...

    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to point out that three threads down there is a thread dedicated to discussing the Imisidies method of production.
    Please use that thread when discussing the Imisidies...
  15. Re: My Ambient/ Room temperature Biodiesel Production

    Hi Mark,

    To be candid, so far your method has offered no advantage at all.
    Disadvantages of your method includes, but is not limited to, taking days to perform a batch instead of the hours in the...

    -7deg C Biodiesel Reaction

    Hi Everyone,

    There has been some discussion lately about making biodiesel at ambient temperature- without heating.

    Many years ago I did a number of experiments to...
  17. Re: My Ambient/ Room temperature Biodiesel Production

    Hi Mark,

    Other than taking a lot of time and using a huge amount of KOH, there is nothing special about your method. As I said in my above post " As long as everything remains liquid, temperature...
  18. Re: My Ambient/ Room temperature Biodiesel Production

    Hi Tony,

    I did the testing concerning this years ago. As long as everything remains liquid, temperature is not a limiting factor in the production of biodiesel.
    However, I will try to set one...
  19. Re: My Ambient/ Room temperature Biodiesel Production

    Hi smithw,
    That is the one overriding stipulation. Everything MUST remain liquid. That is why I ONLY make biodiesel in the spring/ summer.
    In any event, I have so much WVO available, I give away...

    Hi Alga,

    Your 93/ 94 triton turbo diesel would not be a Di engine.

    Hi 3DB,



    That is very close to what I had, a black 2 door falcon sedan- a "sleeper"

    Unfortunately mine would not even get close to 1000 mpg

    Re: Waste Glycerine in WA

    Hi stanno,

    Another consideration is that there is biodiesel mixed in the glycerine layer.
    If you sit your sealed drums in the sun for a year or two much of this biodiesel will slowly migrate to...

    Hi Tony,

    I am not trying to start an argument.
    I am a bit interested in Alga's history.
    As I recall, when Alga first joined the forum yon knew straight away that he did not know the first...
  25. Re: Petrol is just going to cost a lot. I don't get the uproar.

    Hi Alga,

    WOW!! 610km on less than a litre of kerosene. That's over 1723mpg!!! And you were doing 80- 90 mph all the way too.
    Why are we bothering with biodiesel and SVO
