Welcome to our free heating website.
We like to keep this website current, and up to date, with what we are currently working on.
We supply heater parts, we say worldwide, however it's mainly to the USA, Canada, Australia, Scotland, and New Zealand.
Relax this winter as you won't need firewood this year with our heaters.
We're offering free freight on some items in our parts section, but allow 2-3 weeks for delivery, rather than the paid freight option, which is five days currently.
Waste oil nowdays, is a very efficient clean burning fuel, capable in heating almost any area, you put the heater into.
And cleaner burning than even modern woodfires.
More heat output than a desel burner,and without the smell.
The Value of a drum of waste oil
One drum of waste oil costs $51.25NZD to have it recycled, but the heating value in one drum is worth approx $200.00NZD.
So those rusting, leaking, oil drums you've put aside, are now worth huge amounts in energy savings to you.
Waste oil, has twice the heat output of coal, and you know the only way to get rid of it, is by either recycle it, or use it for heating.
As an example, to heat our 3 bedroom two storied home throughout the year, we will burn 3-4 drums of oil per year, which equals
around 820 litres, this saves us around $800.00 in LPG gas/propane a winter.
This is achieved with the waste oil heater setup outside heating water in a 7 metre copper coil, which thermosyphons up to a 2.5 metre x 500mm double skinned radiator inside the home, this radiates a constant heat output of 50c-65c.
As the water cools in the radiator, it falls back down to the heater to be reheated, then is re-heated and sent back up to the radiator which completes the loop.
There is no pressure build up in the closed loop.
Correction on the no pressure build up, I lit the heater today to show a customer how it works, and noticed two small water leaks from crox fittings in the hot water loop. Didn't think too much about it at the time, and 10 minutes later bang, one of the crox joins pulled apart leaking hot water out of the loop onto the concrete floor.
So what happened
The air had sucked in through the leaks which built up pressure in the loop.
So after a lot of emails back and forth, and lots of plumbing help form a recent fire inspector/customer from the council. Thankyou Chris.
The PRV valve was purchased but next day returned, as it was the wrong valve.
We purchased an Ajax Valve and a relief valve, with a 3.6 metre head after plumbers advice.
The Ajax valve connects to the mains water supply keeping the loop full of water.
The Ajax valve controlls the loop pressure in the loop, and the head on the relief valve.
So should the pressure increase in the loop, it will exit out the open vent, and the mains water will automatically tops up with the small amount which exits the water loop.
We can now increase temperature at the radiator by increasing the flow rate at the Ajax Valve by 1/4 of a turn, rather than increasing temperature at the heater..
We have also found the whole radiator is hot and it heats the house beautifully, to the point where it needs turning down in the evenings.
The timer oil pump is operating at between 12-14 second delay, and pumping oil for 1 second, saving quite abit more oil.
This heater is burning extremely clean and on a very low setting, therefore efficiency increases.
With these heaters they can radiate heat, and can heat water with a copper coil fitted.
Once you start heating water you start dealing with high pressures which get very hot and extremely dangerous, so you will require a Qualified plumber to make your system safe. It's also peace of mind.
We do not want anyone making potential pipe bombs with stupid plumbing errors, which can go wrong very quickly, and end up scolding yourselfs.
So please take our advice very seriously.
USE A PLUMBER, DO NOT DO THE PLUMBING YOURSELF.
Most Council’s require that ALL PLUMBING work MUST be carried out by a qualified licensed tradesman. I would either suggest that the purchaser find out, or we'll find out for you, their local Council’s requirements. Some Councils allow homeowners to carry out limited plumbing work of a minor nature, this is a Government authorised statute in law. From memory there are only 4 or 5 local authorities that have this statute.
We would also like to request that these cylinder heaters not be installed inside your home, they can be installed outside, either in a hot box type small shed/shelter away from the house with the appropriate fireproof surrounds , where the hot air, or hot water can be transferred into the home via vent ducting or plumbing to radiators or to a hotwater cylinder.
Outside the pool playing area under a shelter heating water for the spa or swimming pool or both.
The Ajax Valve, which the main water supply enters, which T's into the cold feed at the bottom of the copper coil. With the adjustable pressure setting ring at the bottom of image. Image to the right is the vent with a 3.7 metre head. They say these valves can fail, so best to use an open vent with the Ajax valve.
We also need to look into adding a couple of thermostats, one which turns the oil flow off, should the temperature of the heater drop to 90 Celius, and another which turns the oil flow off should the heater ever get too hot or over 600C. Hard to find this temp thermostat.
This could be needed more in the drip fed units then the controlled oil deilvery systems, it's incase your flue fills up with soot, and choke the heater snuffing the flame out, although cleaning it before winter will stop that happeng.
Just more safety features that we can add to the heater.
And building the odd Rocket Stove. And the odd 45 kg heater underway, but in kit form only.
A rocket stove is an efficient and hot burning stove using small-diameter wood fuel. Fuel is burned in a simple combustion chamber containing a vertical chimney, which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames' reaching the cooking surface.
Rocket stove designs are most often used for portable stoves for cooking.
These are built to order.
$199.00NZ Dollars New Zealand only as it has been made out of heavy steel.

This blower burner unit has been built to fit into and existing logfire. A hole is drilled in the side of the firebox and is fitted blower is fitted through the 55mm hole, the plates are then clamped up with the use of bolts onto the internal fire bricks, and the outer casing of the logfire. This unit is off to Australia.
Look what arrived today by the courier, exciting times. This coupled with the fan blade and the auto lighter turns into this waste oil flame thrower in the image to the right.
But we have customers orders first to complete before we start playing with this.
The Bellow Waste Oil Heater.
We had this small heater operating at 400c and didn't go over that temperature.
We ran it for four - five hours on very thick oil.

A very nice little clean burning manageable heater.
Heater sizes rule of thumb.
9KG Gas cylinder good for double garages, shed, small workshops.
The 18 Kg gas cylinder, great for houses, homes, spa pools, radiators hotwater cylinders.
The 45Kg cylinder glass houses, Aircraft hangars, spa pools, and swimming pools, business, engineering shops, fitting to more than one radiator, hotwater cylinders.
THE DUAL TIMER/PUMP SYSTEM.
These totally change waste oil heating to a safe, consistent, temperature.
For better control of the oil delivery to your waste oil heater.
The problems we have with oil, is as it warms and cools, flow rates can increase, and decrease, even through a precision needle valve, there are differences in pressures in the oil line, even when the storage tank is full, or near empty, this is why this type of heating can be so frustrating at times.
So by using this pump/timer system it eliminates these variations in the oil flow rate, and keeps the heater at a steady temperature without the fluctuations we found in the gravity system.
The timer can be adjusted to your heating requirements by increasing or decreasing the delay time.
We now sell this complete Dual Timer Pump Systems fully wired, plumbed up ready to connect to your heater.
The Dual Timer kit comes complete with a brass reducing bush from 3/4" to 3/8ths" with hose tail which fits your storage tank which also connects to the tubing, 3 metres clear plastic tubing, S/S hose clips,
12 volt 230/240 volt AC power adaptor, oil pump, and a dual timer, with full printed instructions on all 4 modes P1 P2 P3 P4.
All fitted inside a plastic box or safe keeping.
The Mode settings.
Mode P1 Start time.
Mode P2 Stop time, if you want the heater to only run for 4 hours, then it will stop the oil flow after that time.
Mode P3 Is the dual timer, which operates the pump for a set amount of time, and a delay time. We set ours to 1 second then stops for 9 seconds, and continues until you stop it. The time delay we find does need to be altered to different batches of oil.
Mode P4 is a stobe light LED light option.
As the oil exits the copper tubing at extremely high temperature it changes into a gas (Gasification) and it's this gas which keeps the heater going, not a pool of oil burning in the pot. We have found there is no oil in the pot during operation, to prove this we used a pot with 5 holes in the bottom, sort of expecting to find oil exiting the heater, it continued burning for 15 hours, and not a drop of oil was captured proving gasification was occurring.

The Blower Burner Test
The burn test using the timer pump system, with a blower burner unit, after 12 hours burning at 480c.
17 litres burnt = 1.41 liters per hour.
Ash in the bowl measured just under 1 cup, and the oil we use is black and filthy. (left)
We have alot of customers wanting to get rid of their expensive diesel, gas & wood burning units, and change to a more efficient, free to run, waste oil blower, burner units.
These blower burner units heat anything from the larger upright Marshall boilers, to the domestic water heating double wall water heaters/boilers. We have found they will heat any vessel they are installed in, from the 9kg gas cylinder, to the larger 45 kg gas cylinder for the larger buildings. Basically the larger the steel vessel, the more heat it will radiate.
Although we build these to fit your heating needs, we have normally two types which work, they are the Straight Nose & Bent Nose blowers. Straight nose for existing fire boxes, marshall heaters, or where the two parts meet by opening and closing a door. The bend blowers are for cylinders where water is to be heated. These are fitted through the side of the cylinder into a pot.
New Zealand prices
The bent nose $396.00 NZD plus freight, $20.00 Nth Island $39.00 Sth Island.
The Straight nose $343.00NZD plus freight, $20.00 Nth Island $39.00 Sth Island.

Customer feedback from a blower burner unit.
Aaaaaaah the warmth. It's been running for a few days now and is excellent, less noise, less smoke, more efficient, more consistent output. Very good Jim 10/10.
The twisted piece of pipe is great, gets the fan out if the way, and the timer/pump will be sent for when funds are allocated, we’re now discussing putting in another radiator…
Hello Hamish, Wer'e just had another look at your website and had a good laugh. Seeing our 'twisted' blower unit. Now some of the facts aren't quite correct, after 5 months constant use, often with 8 radiators and two showers going simultaneously we had to say it's fantastic 20/10.
After 40 years burning wood and sometimes coal on various water heaters in different houses this is it.
The way to go to heat a house. Anyway about the timmer. lol
yes he got one.
Best Regards Graham.
As simple as unbolt the diesel burner, and bolt on the waste oil blower unit.
45 kg gas cyinders with door and flue holes aready made.
All you need is the burner blower unit to bolt onto the side of the cylinder.
Comes with buring pot. pot stand,solid steel hinged door and flue housing.
$360.00nzd These are too heavy to export.
Excellent for drying timber or firewood in a enclosed 40 foot container.

Hi Hamish, I put the dual timer kit, in two weekends ago and that solved all the flow problems!
No more variable flow rates as the sun heats the oil tank, and good flow into the burner bowl all the time now - I used a timer and have found that a rate of "on for one second, off for two" is best
It works so well I can turn it on in the morning and leave it all day with no adjustment at all - brilliant!
Here's the setup above.
Note the smoke levels.
This is the kit to fit into an exsisting logfire, this particular unit, the customer in the States removed the glass and fitted it.The idea is the unit pulls apart when the logfire door is opened.Runs from fish n chip oil or waste.
We have WiFi controllers which come with a free download mobile app, to turn the heater off, or set the heater to a timer, which works from any WIFI or mobile connection.
Excellent if you leave work and forget to turn it off.
We still think the lighting should be done manually to make sure they its going.
We use two WIFI controllers one for the fan and the other for the oil supply, but you can get away with using one controller for both.
The WIFI is an optional extra which I find really handy Priced at $48.06 USD plus freight. BUY NOW
The next idea is a Wifi camera pointed at the heater, connected to your phone would be handy. So you don't need to go outside to check it at all. With the dual timer fitted there really is no need to check it anymore as we did with the graviy feed types.
Camera is ready to be fitted in place.

All our waste oil heaters can operate up to approximately 800 C cleanly, however we recomend 400-600 degrees celsius, with these temperatures we recommend to install fire safe surrounds, whether that be brickwork, suitable tin sheeting, or hardie board with a 20mm gap between the wall so air can flow behind the sheet, and 20 mm off the ground and the heater setup 500 mm away from any fire proof surface you have constructed.
The blower burner after 2 minutes being lit.
Little bit of smoke which can happen when there is too much oil entring the pot or your the air force isn't correct. Sometimes it can be the rag used to light the oil smokes. To clear any smoke, turn the oil off until it clears, turn the oil back on, but reduced rate or increase fan speed.
You can see just by the flame colour if the heater is going to smoke, if you will see an orange/black darkish flame, it will smoke, so change the flame to a yellow white agitated flame with pointed tips you need to either increase the fan speed or the fans cubic feet per metre. The hair dryer, is great for testing, as it has three speeds. Not good as a fan full time, as they aren't rated for long term use, and can be very loud.
80mm x 80mm 12V 0.57A with wires to connect to. Positive Red, Negative Black. These are the only fans we could get the correct airflow, which makes waste oil heating, clean burning. So, if your building a heater these work.
We can also supply the speed controller and 12V 240 Volt power adapter at an additional cost. Just ask.

The only retricting factor of waste oil heating, when it comes to long hours of heating is the buildup of carbon in the pot. Hard to see from this image, but after 12 hours there is approx a cup and a half full of carbon. The way to get around this if burning throughtout the night, is to change to a clean pot before the night burn starts. This will alter with different types of oil. Hydraulic oil seems to leave no carbon behind which would be perfect for long burning. So a business who services hydralic rams would be the ones to get your oil from. I have found a lot of water in this oil but tilting the oil container back from the oil outlet pipe will solve this problem.
I had too many holes in the stainless steel pot which was purchased from Mitre 10, so i changed it to a flat bottom pot i had lying around the shed, no mater what i did when i lit it the fire smoked infact at one stage it went out. I dug out the old holy pot stuck that back in the heater lite it no smoke, why! Well all to do with the shape i surpose. So we use a kitchen mixing bowl either from a supermarket or M10 they work well but the stainless steel is very thin and will last 6 months, however at $9.90 it's still a cheap pot.

The Do's and Don'ts when it comes to waste oil heating.
Filter all your oil you intend to burn, this is important, never try burning it unfiltered the problems of blocking taps, and lines are honesty not worth the hassle and messy. If they block, you can use compressed air carefully, blow the oil back up the tube to the storage tank so any oil is contained.
Do use a gas torch to light the oil, it will makes lighting the oil a lot faster.
Do limit the oil flow to a maximum of 2 and a half turns on the needle valve or a thin steam just after a drip.
Do turn the fan on when you light the heater soon after you have a good flame going 5 seconds or so.
Do shut the door.
Do put 2 lengths of flue minimum onto your heater.
Do use a temperature gauge, then you can see exactly what your heater is doing at all times.
If running a radiator/s keep a temp gauge on the radiator, so should the radiator drops in temperature to say 40C from 85C you will need to go and check the heater, as it may have run out of oil, or the ash has built up inside the pot, turn the heater off, and change pots to a clean one, and relight.
Clean the flue if soot falkes are exiting the flue when you start lighting your heater. Clean the flue after 200 litres of oil burnt.
If you don't clean the flue, soot will block the airflow snuffing out the flame, and if your overflow oil capture is non existent, then you'll be in alot of trouble.
Don't ever light these heaters with petrol Never light the heater with petrol if it is still hot, you'll get about a metre away from the heater before the fumes ignite with a boom. The flue will end up in your neighbours, your dog will turn from white to black in .5 of a second.
Don't over supply any heater with too much oil, or the well known Chernobyl effect will take place. This it when the heater starts to roar, smokes, and turn the heater red including the flue. Should this ever happen turn the oil off, block air inlet holes and sit it out.
Remember 1 litre can burn for an hour. Image below not vey clear sorry. The fan forced heater don't seem to do this however care is needed so it never happens.
Don't leave it unattended, no different to an open fire. Unless you have a oil feed controller.
Keep very close eye on these heaters when they are new, they will train you, rather than you training it.
We have had eight years operating these heaters, we know how they should sound when operating correctly, and you will also become tuned in to them when operating.
This will take you a couple of weeks to learn its ways..
Do it right, and you'll get to enjoy all the free heat. Its simple, never oversupply oil to these heaters, and they will heat your world for free. Use a oil controller dual timer, pump system, to be safe. Wifi controls will also make your life easier.
All available right here. Thanks for taking your time to check use out.

Tommy lives in USA and came to us wanting to build a fan forced waste oil heater for his shed, so he purchased our plans, from which he has now finished this heater shown in the video above, and it's a big beast. Love the additional spark plug option not included in the plans, the second stage burn he fitted, to it just to keep his mates guessing, what on earth he was building.
He purchased the fan box kit only from us, now look at it.
Thanks Tommy for sharing with the viewers, excellent work.
Thank you Jim
