I just got this but I find 3 hours between washes (3 washes) waaaaay too much time. 1 hour is more than sufficient as I use citric acid in the wash water so get very good separation.

Anyone alter the wash cycle program timing?

Those things have a PLC in them? No wonder they are so pricey.
Open the hood and have a look, you may just find a standard adjustable timer relay as I dont see why you would put a PLC in something so basic...
Either way, PLC or not, changing the timing should be very strait forward..
Sorry I cant help, I have never seen one...
Cheers,
Jon

Ya.... when this second batch is done (just got this a week ago) I'm gonna pop the hood see what I can find. I'll keep you posted.

I've made around 15,000L biodiesel with plastic cone tanks and single stage reaction. This thing is my xmas present. Sure reduces my time requirements. Fill it, press button, drain glycerol, press button for wash/dry.

Here's the PLC controller.... not that expensive, both pieces about $140-150.

Here's the hardware:

The output module is this one:

The programming software is here:

Now I have NO idea if I can extract the programming in the unit and modify it or if that's not possible because you need the program file from springboard biodiesel.

if you can crack the plc password then you could get in and adjust the timeframe or you could measure all i/o and program a new plc seems pretty time consuming it would be nice to just have the password
