Had an interesting comment from Jesse Parris in the US regarding an old post of mine about Waste Oil Burners. When I get a worthwhile comment to an old post, I tend to publish it as a current item and not have it lost in the archives. This IMHO is one such comment.
Seems Jesse has be doing DIY oil burner conversions for years and has a wealth of information on his site. (link below)
This fiddling with oil burner units stuff is NOT for the average tinkerer, you would need a fair degree of mechanical and electrical knowledge to attempt these conversions. There might also be implications for SAFETY and FIRE HAZARDS and these could affect you home or business insurance.
Nevertheless, this is great information and a most useful source for those interested in DIY.
Here is Jesse's comment:
My name is Jesse Parris and I have a nine year old Yahoo forum, altfuelfurnace with over 6000 members globally.
What you are discussing here is not new technology. You don't really need an expensive Kroll burner to do this. You can build your own burner a lot cheaper because all the parts are available. I've been helping others to do this all these years.
There are units in the US and the UK that can be adapted to burn waste motor oil and waste veg oil easily.
