Hi again,
Still looking into various furnaces/boilers to burn my fuel to heat my house. I found this King Built brand that's built right near where I live. Their website is www.kingbuilt.com
I'm emailing back and forth with a rep. Looks like their boiler can burn waste veg oil, virgin oil, biodiesel, glycerine, crankcase drain oils, etc.

Haven't heard a price yet, still researching.
Have a great week,
Nick

HI
I bought a King built burner for a Buderus boiler I purchased separately in the spring of 2010.
I was advised by King Built to increase the electric heater temperature for pre heating the oil until the boiler came up to temp and this was done by the boiler water.
This caused the heater hoses to the water/oil heater to disintragrate causing:
1. Taco circulator to sieze up
2. Auto air vent to stick open
3. "Rubber" from hoses to line water/oil heat exchanger tubes.
The net result is that I cannot get the unit to burn waste oil as the pre heating system will not raise the temp above 95-100 deg F.
I was working with them to rectify this problem but learned they have sold out.
I presently am out the cost of : a new circulator, hoses, air vent and have a water/oil heat exchanger which does not appear to be working fully due to the deposits on the transfer surfaces.
DOES ANY ONE KNOW THE NEW COMPANY ?

If you don't get anywhere with help from the company, I have an idea to fix that heat exchanger...

Disconnect it and hook it up to a lacquer thinner recirculation system. Lacquer thinner has a way of dissolving pretty much everything it touches. They should call it "Dissolve everything thinner".

It might work..
