I did a half liter of wvo that titrated 15 . Used 1 cc. acid and 40 cc. methanol with the half liter. I kept the jar sealed and in a warm water bath of 130F. After one day it titrated 5. I was happy. Now I'm doing a 40 gallon batch of the same wvo, the only thing that bothers me is the reactor vent that goes outside,,will cause the methanol to vaporize off. But what else can I do? The thermometer on the tank reads 130 F. I'm going to leave the element on over night and do a titration in the morning.
-if your going to do acid esterfication in your processor, 1ml of acid per ltr of oil is not going to be enough at that Titratiron. T 15 X .15 will work. once you master that you can try to cut back a bit, but how much will depend on the residual caustic in the processor.
-where your vent tube goes out side , extend it 4 or 5 feet in the air, put a couple elbows on the top to prevent rain water from getting in. Now the methanol that evaporates will condense in the tube and drip back into the processor. Tom

It would be 2 cc./liter ,it was a half liter sample that I used. Yeh,right ,give the vapor a long run so it'll condense and drain back into the reactor.
