Appleseed and Acid

Like many of you my oil supply; that at one time was okay, has turned to bad - it titrates REALLY high with NaOH - in the +8 to +10 g/liter.

I have an appleseed processor.

Are you all using the Acid-Base process in an appleseed with good results? Is the Acid eating away the metal tank/pipes/pumps and brass fittings?

thanks

-current processor 1.5 years of AE every batch. not sign of any bad stuff Big Grin. my previous processor, small 27 ltr all 3/4 copper plumbing no sign of any deterioration when It was removed from service after 4 years. My tanks are steel propayne tanks, about 1/8 in thick. There is not even any signs of corrosion in the steel methoxide tank! Tom
