Recycling isn't always easy, though. There are lots of different types of waste oil and each byproduct comes with its own set of rules for recycling or reuse. Some oils don't mix well with others, some require special treatment, and some aren't recyclable at all. So how do you know whether you're reusing the oil safely?
Reduce Risk and Save Money with a Used Oil Burner
Here's everything you need to know about the process of safely disposing of your used oil with a used oil burner.
What is Used Oil?
Used oil can be defined as any type of refined oil that has been used and, as a result, is now contaminated by physical or chemical properties. Basically, used oil is what is in the name.
During regular use of certain oils, impurities such as dirt, metal scrapings, water or chemicals can get into the oil. Those impurities no longer allow the waste oil to perform well. Even though oil can get dirty, it can be recycled and repurposed, which includes filtering for reuse. In fact, you can rely on a used oil burner to safely dispose of your byproducts and provide heat for your business.
What is the Difference Between Used and Waste Oil
A common question we receive about our products is whether it makes sense to use a used oil burner versus one that uses waste oil. While there is no real difference between the two types of burners, the way you treat each type of oil is very important.
Recycled oil is oil that has already been used and reused. This includes oils that come out of cars, trucks, and boats, as well as oils that come out of industrial machinery or equipment. Recycled oil is generally considered to be safe for combustion purposes because it has already been cleaned up.
Waste oil includes oils that are left over from previous uses, as well as oils that are left over from manufacturing processes. Although waste oil is usually considered unsafe for burning, with a Clean Burn waste oil burner, the process becomes safe and effective.
