If your business produces waste oil, you are familiar with the trials and tribulations that come with disposal. Handling a highly toxic substance puts you in a position of high-risk, so minimizing that is in your best interest as a business owner. Recycling your waste oil is a good option, one that many business owners are considering as industries seek out ways to be more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. Our Clean Burn heaters are the perfect solution if you are interested in recycling your waste oil. Let’s talk about how our waste oil burning heaters work so you can get to know the benefits recycling waste oil for heat can offer your business.

Clean Burn Waste Oil Burning Heaters

Clean Burn is an industry leader with proprietary technology that offers the most efficient system on the market. As the only authorized Clean Burn distributor, we are proud to off the benefits of these waste oil burning heaters to our clients. Let’s walk through some of the features on our furnaces and boilers that make these systems stand out.

The Clean Burn Advantage

Clean Burn’s technology includes an industry leading heat exchanger, advanced burner, metering pump, and other details that make it the most efficient heating system on the market.

The Heat Exchanger

The heat exchanger that makes up all of our waste oil burning heaters is patented technology that maximizes the surface area that is exposed to the combustion chamber. This increases the speed in which a space can be heated. When you compare our heat exchanger to the traditional blast tube furnace, there is approximately 200% more surface area in a Clean Burn waste oil burning heater to capture combustion heat. Ultimately, what it comes down to is more heat from less oil.

The Advanced Burner

When working with a waste oil burning heater, you must preheat the oil to ignite it properly. Our burner is engineered specifically to burn waste oils with the preheating process in mind, however, it can also accommodate standard fuel oil, as well. The preheating block heats both the oil and the air to the same temperature to increase combustion efficiency. This preheated mixture is ignited at the burner retention head where additional combustion air is added helping the waste oil burning heaters easily control the flame. The special retention head creates more air turbulence to generate a larger, more efficient flame.

The Metering Pump

Most waste oil burning heaters feature plastic gears and electric motors that require a fan cooling component. This is not very efficient and makes for a short life cycle. The Clean Burn metering pump is made from heavy duty steel gears encased in an oil bath to ensure extended service life. Each of our waste oil burning heaters maintains consistent oil flow based on individually set gear ratios and pump speeds improving the overall performance.

The Swedged Construction

Traditionally, waste oil burning heaters are built with welding. These welded joints are susceptible to cracking and failing in the combustion chamber environment. Instead of welding our waste oil burning heaters, we use a swedge to join metal parts. This allows the metal in our heat exchanger to expand and contract as needed, while minimizing metal fatigue. This increases the lifetime of your Clean Burn heating system.

So, How Do Clean Burn Waste Oil Burning Heaters Work?

Clean Burn waste oil burning heaters leverage the above noted technology to create an efficient heating system that relies on recycled waste oil to decrease overhead costs and the impact on the environment. Coming in various different sizes, the Clean Burn waste oil burning heaters can accommodate any size workspace to help businesses of all types repurpose their waste oil to heat their business.
