    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi Cade,

    Yes, there is not a huge increase in yield
    This is what Neutral posted about the testing he performed with it.
    Around a 3% increase with WVO containing about 5% FFA.

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi Cade,
    Yes, the 5% pre-wash is certainly counter intuitive, but it does work- I have done it before when I was water-washing my biodiesel.

    The amount of yield gain will depend on the titration...

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi Cade,

    Instead of turning off the mixer and allowing the glycerine to settle for 45 minutes at the end of the reaction, I would immediately do a 5% pre-wash before the glycerine settles as...

  7. Re: Can you make bio with Frytol oil?

    Hi Jack,
    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes, you can make biodiesel from Frytol exactly like you make biodiesel from veg oil.
    As with any oil, the Frytol must remain liquid throughout the reaction.

    Hi 3DB

    Hi Cade,

    Thank you for your vote of confidence, you have made me blush.

    Hi Wesley,

    Just washed biodiesel with lots of water still in suspension looks like "Orange Juice". You do have to agitate to thoroughtly mix the biodiesel and water.

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi Cade,

    I can not recall that I have ever used an acid to break an emulsion.
    My thoughts are that you should use as little as possible that will do the job you are after.

    Hi Cade,

    I think you have answered your own question.
    I would just let it sit and see if the emulsion breaks on it's own, then remove water and continue to heat. Otherwise you know vinegar...

    Hi Cade,

    In your situation, instead of heating the biodiesel until it clears and then allowing to cool, just remove the water that settles out when the biodiesel clears and continue heating.

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi cade,

    If you want to heat your biodiesel to "force" dry it, anything up to 100C should be fine.




    You could make, settle, wash and dry in 24 hours if you wanted to. The biggest slow...
