I purchased a flat bottom stanless tank 300gl.Installed Two 1" pumps on a 2" bottom drain. Split off two lines into top of tank where I added a vantui to one line for the acid(not shown in photo) both lines drop down inside the tank so the wvo is circulating good.
The methanol goes in from the top into the center of the tank with a jet at the end of the line it is pushed in with a air operated diaphragm pump. I also have a stand pipe 6" long.The tank can be safely pressure up to 5 psi
I have a 8 pound pop off.
Added 250gl of wvo 14 koh
120oz of acid
25gl of methanol
mix 8 hours
The titration ended up at 5 koh
Have not ran it thru a base yet (will update)

Have you done the base yet? I have some yellow grease that is at 22.5 koh. I am looking forward to working with it. Anyone have any hints on how to work with this oil?
