How does dry washing work? (wood chip)

I've got a 120L bio diesel machine and i make roughly one batch per week.
At the moment i water wash, then dry the fuel.

I've read so much adout this dry washing to the point where i'm soooo confused.

I've bought a fibre glass tower 38"x8" and some BioPura wood chip.

My plan was to allow the biodiesel (before the wash process) to drain through the tower by gravity into a holding tank ready to be used.

Is this possible?
I've seen diagrames with two cylinders, (lead an lag?) What is this?
Will i need filters on this system?
Will i need a 30 psi pump?
Does the fuel have to be kept at a certain temperature during this process or can it be left cold?

Basically if you can help in anyway possible i'd be greatfull for your input.

Diagrames would be great to.

Many Thanks
