you did not heat the biodiesel at all before running thru the cf. I always wandered about how it would remove koh soap. when it is best to filter at cooler temp than warm temp for the removal of koh soap. that makes me all the more reason to get one if I dont have to heat the bio. Brad.
And heat would cause more rapid polymerization.
What do the outlets on these CF filters look like (Spinner2 and Dieselcraft?) Does the cleaned oil just tumble out of a hole or is the outlet threaded and can the oil therefore be led through a pipe away to another drum?
When these filters are fitted to a vehicle, is the idea that the cleaned oil returns to the sump by gravity?
Yes, and when you do not have a straight shot back to the sump, or you need to use elbows or a smaller diameter hose or pipe than the outlet of the centrifuge then you need to assist the oil flow with air pressure, if you are just dropping straight into a barrel you do not need air.
The air on a spinner is used to break the vacuum inside the filter. If I forget to supply the air pressure, the bowl does not spin as fast. It has a very different sound and does not work as well of course.
I do not believe the air supply has anything to do with the return oil lines. They are meant to be gravity fed back to the rest of the supply. You do not want any back pressure on the exit port. All of the documentation on the filters state the filter needs to be above the oil supply and gravity fed. Just call the mfg if you want to be sure. I already did 2 years ago.
All of the ports are 1/2 NPT.
Well okay, for cleaning WVO, which is better...Spinner2 or Dieselcraft?
Can't speak for dieselcraft, but if you look at the specs of the two filters, they are basically the exact same design.
Do you heat the Biodiesel while filtering it with your Centrifuge?
