Waste oil heating systems have become a popular option for many businesses because of their many environmental and economical benefits. But how exactly do these systems keep you warm? In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about used oil burners so that you can reduce your heat bills, save the environment, and get all the heat you need to stay warm during winter in Colorado and Wyoming.

What is a Used Oil Burner and How Does it Produce Heat?

A waste oil heating system is simply a furnace or boiler that uses waste oil to produce free heat for your facility. Clean Burn waste oil heating systems can recycle waste oil, synthetic oil, ATF, hydraulic oil, and #2 fuel oil from machines that can no longer make good use of it. Waste oil furnaces come in several shapes and sizes to serve your business’s needs.

When it comes to producing heat, Clean Burn heaters are engineered to transfer the heat produced by burning used oil to the surrounding air. Don’t worry, that warm air is safe to breathe. All you need to take care of is feeding the heater waste oil or other applicable oil products.

Once the tank of the burner is filled with waste oil and the heater is turned on, an electric motor will turn an internal fan to pull air into a blast tube. The oil then gets filtered and pumped to the burner. Before the oil can begin to burn, it must be pre-heated by the burner to the correct temperature.

The heated oil is then atomized (converted into tiny particles) and sprayed into the blast tube. The heated oil and air particles are then ignited by a high voltage starter. This generates massive amounts of heat and the heat exchanger will get hot air from the ignited oil. Finally, the heated air is circulated into the room.

Who Can Benefit From Owning an Oil Burner?

Any business that generates a significant amount of waste oil can reap massive savings and benefits from these systems. Even if you don’t produce enough used oil to consistently heat your business, don’t worry: Clean Burn oil heaters can also burn #2 fuel oil.

Here are a few of the industries and organizations that most commonly benefit the most from switching to waste oil heaters:

  • Auto and equipment repair shops
  • Car dealerships
  • Car washes
  • Construction, demolition, and renovation companies
  • Farmers and ranchers
  • Heavy equipment dealerships
  • Mining
  • Oil and fluid replacement
  • Rental car lots
  • Taxis
  • Trucking

How Much Money Will You Save?

A waste oil heating system is certainly an investment, but it won’t take long to start seeing the positive returns. Once the equipment is paid off, you will start to essentially hear your business for free. This is because the oil heater relies solely on the “waste” oil you provide it.
