Continuous waste motor oil distiller.
This manual will help you build a real continuous waste motor oil distiller capable of continuously processing used automotive and industrial oils into usable and clean diesel fuel at rates over 10L per hour. Moreover, the continuous distiller can bleach dark and dirty diesel-based fuels and remove the dye from the dyed diesel fuel at speeds of up to 15L per hour. Thus practically supplying the owner with almost free fuel for a diesel car and diesel-powered machinery on your farm. All you need to do is find a supply of used engine oil that some mechanics are having trouble getting rid of. Thus you will own your crude oil processing mini-refinery that will pay for itself in no time. Of course, one will need to invest time and effort in building the unit. You can make the distiller out of scrap metal.
And at the same time, many of us can find a good source of some used automotive oil – motor oil, automatic transmission oil, hydraulic oil at the cost of asking. Some mechanics will be happy to get rid of it, or maybe you are a motor mechanic or person from the car scrap/removal company. And what about turning your collected sump oil into a valuable fuel to run your yard machinery, diesel heaters, and backup generators.
The distillery is a low-maintenance right, continuous oil distillation machine that is not a pyrolysis machine. This distiller, if correctly used, is capable of good quality fuel that will not be prone to oxidation, will not smell horribly like a pyrolysis fuel, and will ensure standard engine work.
Anyway, even at the lowest diesel fuel prices, this machine will pay for itself in no time at the overage production rate of 10L per hour. It will save you at least $15.00 per hour worth of fuel (and crude oil prices are climbing again).
The machine described in this manual is simple and relatively easy to build by anyone who can work with sheet metal and weld a bit. The manual contains the necessary information to replicate the distiller described in these construction plans.
The plans are loaded with many step-by-step pictures of the real working still construction. The distilling machine is a simple continuous system, and despite the simplicity, it gives outstanding results while bleaching colored diesel-based fuels, including red diesel fuel. And also capable of processing pyrolysis liquids and waste automotive and industrial mineral and synthetic oils into usable diesel fuel.
