Is Any one trying this? I'm very interested in the idea.I'm using an appleseed with KOH for reaction.I'm planning an upgrade to my system and this could greatly affect my decisions.
Any input would help!

My main goal is to demeth the biodiesel before wood chip dry wash.I also need
a way to demeth glycerin byproduct but that can be done with a still later.

I've had a thought or two along those lines...If you didn't take out the swirl tube on the cold water inlet(when it still was considered a h2o heater), that might be the way to reverse the flow direction and get good mixing of the bottom.

I have been using an upside down water heater for a few years now doing push/pulls or WBD's with great success.
Here are some pics of it HERE

Cheers,

I would wonder about the temp limits on the where you plan to drain
the demethed liquid? for me this is around 200F..above the temps of most plastics..

are you processing the KOH or NaOH??? can you deal with solid gylcerin? or VERY thick glycerin..
it'll be thick after it cools..regardless of caustic..ones just thicker than the other

sorry about the edit.
but can your pumps handle the temps needed to demeth? think 200F+
