How much glycerine??

How much byproduct should be used on a 200L batch?

Should the wvo be heated along with byproduct or introduced afterwards?

How much byproduct are you guys using or would use for a 200L batch?

Is 30 min. mixing long enough?

After removing it should I recalculate my percentages, eg. 200L wvo, 60L byproduct, 50L removed so technically I am processing 210L...

TIA

I use all the byproduct from the previous batch to pretreat the next batch.

My volume of oil is ~115 lts and my byproduct volume is ~20 lts.

For you it would be ~40 lts byproduct.

I heat the oil to processing temp first (65c) before I introduce the byproduct.

Mix for an hour,then settle for an hour and drop the byproduct.

Do not worry about the extra volume gained,this is bio and meth and needs no extra chemicals,just base chemicals on your initial volume of oil.

how much does it cut down your titration?

I increased my wvo by 40L and had to reduce my byproduct and barely noticed a drop in titration value but there was substantial BD left in the reactor and the byproduct was a lot darker and heavier but that is normal.

thanks for the reply only confirmed my intuition.
