I have a longwood dual fuel furnace , wood fuel oil.
Would like to burn wvo. Are there any plans to convert a burner?
Thank's for the replys , i guess it's not cold enough yet in most places...
The information you want can be found at
Tone it down just a bit.
It is easy to miss a few posts.
As far as I can tell, the "Longwood" furnace is no longer manufactured, and has very little manufacture support.
So if you blow out an injector or burner, you will be improvising.
Many people have successfully run biodiesel in heating oil/kerosene stoves. Although, I tried in my Detroit Vapor/Red Star stove and was less than satisfied with the results.
The success all depends on the injector/burner design, and perhaps the number of starts and stops and whether it uses & can maintain a pilot.
The notes from previous posts seems to indicate that one of the more successful SVO/WVO adaptions for furnaces is with a company called Yellow Heat.
As far as I can tell, they use a dual-fuel system that lights with kerosene, then kicks over to SVO.
If you like your dual fuel system. Then you might want to contact Yukon about a "new" similar wood/oil furnace, although I'm guessing that you would be lucky if they support biodiesel.
If you want model specific information & ideas for your Longwood, then post a description of the actual burner along with some photos.
I did my Tarm dual fuel boiler. I just started a new thread about it. the details are on my blog. I learned most of it from the altfuel group. Join the group and start reading/collecting parts now. I think converting a car is much easier, but a heater can be done.
