Drip fed waste oil heating build waste oil heaters for sheds, workshops, homes, aircraft hangars, spa pools and pools.

We even have a couple of heaters drying firewood.

We have them in 20 and 40 foot container batches where there's no power running, totally off grid off 12 volts, heating, and heating water.

I do strongly believe that, burning our waste oil cleanly for heating today, is far better than storing it for the next generation to clean up.

Otherwise, this so called stored oil, in leaking drums, is just destroying our waterways, our flora, fauna & wildlife, and is definitely not the way forward for 2018

Wth the cost of recycling waste oil, really is the only option for most business today.

We have concentrated our efforts towards the 45 kg heaters, because the 19kg cylinders are almost impossible to get our hands on. 

So your better to have more heat than you need and run it on low than not enough.


I've been running this heater above all day heating the house,

Radiator is operating at 80C or 176F

Room temp whole top level 24 degrees and cost 12 volts 5 amps maybe $3.00 if that.

The waste oil controller looks after the oil delivery and temperatures.

Smoke levels nil all day.


There are many business which service trucks, cars, tractors, machinery and service centres who end up with a constant flow of waste oil. This costs business's thousands of dollars in oil recycling, let alone the storage costs of holding this oil onsite for collection, when the waste oil could be transformed into heating the business, saving thousands of dollars not only in recycling costs, but in heating bills.

Amagine your workshop/service centre, warm all day rather than freezing cold, and really saving you money while heating the business, this alone would get staff to work on time and straight into working.

The hole business would be more productive.


Our 45 kg heaters burns 1.2 -1.5 litres an hour, so one 44 gallon drum would burn for 140-175 hours, and saving $52.00 a drum in recycling costs. They operate from a laptop charger 240 volt /12 volts 5 amps. Or we have a adaptor for 12 volt battery available now.

2 weeks of free heating per drum.


If you would rather we burn your waste oil, then we accept clean full 44 gallon drums delivered, no more that 10 drums at one time please

or clean full 20 litre containers.

We ask that your oil is straight oil being; car, truck, tractor, plane, hydraulic, transmission oil, brake fluid, not mixed with petrol, diesel or coolant.

The petrol makes it volatile, the diesel makes it smoke, the coolant puts the heater out. 

We finally tested the prototype gasifier and it worked, it didn't blow the neighbourhood up which was good, we had a couple of leaks in the gas tube which didn't help. The gas burnt cleanly at first then as it increased flow black smoke started coming off it, so that says to me, the gas needs scrubbing and cooling before lighting. We also got alot of wax from it which is also flammable, I thought it would have been more oil but it sets as wax would, and it's cream in colour and burns cleanly for quite some time a 1/2 teaspoon full burnt for five minutes. 

Apart from the paint burning off the cylinders the smoke levels where excessive at times because we didn't sandblast the cylinder, and the wood must be abit damp. Now our collection for the plastic wasn't very big, we put 1 milk bottle,1 coke bottle 1 drinking bottle, meat tray, and plastic film, a few Resene test pots x 5 and three or four plastic bags and sealed it off. It kept giving off gas for 2 hours. We opened it and there was wax at the bottom and a few little bits of paper charcoaled in the base, this would have been the stickers on the plastic.


So after this test our thoughts are we need to move towards something the size of a 44 gallon drum but thicker steel to be able to get taps and pipes fitted to it, and a sealed lid, a copper coil to cool the gas, and a 75mm pipe filled with pot scrubbers to clean the gas.

a fan and an exit pipe for the gas to be burnt off or compressed into cylinders for home heating.

We could use the waste oil rather than smokie wood to heat the plastic.


Plastic in a cylinder the size of a 44 gallon drum would give off gas for 5 hours approx.


So if there's anyone out there who would like to help either by donating the tank or tanks or more knowledge than we have worked out,

anything at al would help. Without help we can't go ahead with this plastic gasification although someone needs to. 

I'd also like to add dealing with used plastic isn't the nicest stuff to handle and it can stink.

Please fill out one of the forms to get in contact.

Cheers Drip Fed.


As we are into engineering and have worked out how to burn a waste product cleanly, and how to provide free heating or free energy, to the world, my interests are looking towards Plastic Biomass Gasification which is the breakdown of the structure of plastic, back to the oil and gas of which it was made. We are looking at the basics first like heating plastic to 700 degrees in a seal vessel until it splits with the use of waste oil for the heating process. If your interested in this little venture and would like to be included.

Or even if you have knowedge about council bylaws.

China is building these big plants, but I still don't think their big enough.

I think Councils should be looking into this now. They are gasifying plastic, rubber and heating turbines which are generating electricity brillant. We have this stigma about burning anything which is holding progress back.

Ideally this is what we need, but it comes down to huge amounts of money. 

We have built a small gasifer to test if we are on the right track, we will start with wood and then move to plastic, we will make a short video to show our findings, If the prototype works then we'll look into building a home version where it could be purchased.. 

email us using the form below if this intrests you..

Cheers Drip Fed


We have just buit a commercial waste oil blower burner unit to convert a wood fired steam boiler into waste oil boiler. The fan box slightly larger, and the pipe used is 75mm diameter allowing all the fans air to reach the fire.106 cubic metres of air per minute 12 volt 2.5 amps. Complete with oil controller and thermostat.

 The end of the pipe has a deflector, to direct the airflow into the burning bowl.

It will be used to cook up pig food using steam.

Painted in heatproff black, and zinc blue These will be or colours, and we have labels arriving soon to say who buit it.

Priced at $699.00 NZD

We have a guy we would like to help out. He sells Morris Minor Parts.
So if your in need of parts for your old Morrie then he's your guy to contact, Gilbert.
I remember as a kid, our family had one of these and it was those indicators that flicked out from the side doors, use to be so cool. I think my sisters rolled in the end.

The wood fired heater/cooktop. Will be converted to a waste oil cooker soon, as we don't have any firewood except pallets which honestly is a hassle to cut up compared to oil. The wood fired heater $495.00 currently on www.trademe.co.nz

The waste oil fed heater with oil controller and blower burner unit $850.00

The waste oil heater with oil controller and blower burner unit, and copper coil for water heating. $1199.00

If your interested in this you'll need to fill out the form above. 

It's been difficult to source 45 kg cylinders at times, however we now have a steady supply of good quality cylinders, so if you would like one, to build your waste oil heater, or waste oil barbecue, they are available from us. The valves have been removed and they have failed their hydro tests so they cannot be used for gas.

Selling at $124.00 each. Plus freight.

Drip Fed Waste Oil Heating, supplies waste oil heater parts, worldwide, however it's mainly to the USA, Canada, Australia, Scotland, and New Zealand, and a lot go to the South Island of NZ, we are open to orders from the rest of the world too, so please don't feel you've been left out in the cold, we'll work out the freight cost for you.


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 to the United States.


Burning waste oil, the thick black choking smoke has been reduced to nil, and now in 2018 is a extremly efficient clean burning free fuel straight from the drum, as in the video above shows, and capable in heating almost any area you put the heater into.

Cleaner burning than today's wood fires.

Twice the heat output of a wood, diesel or coal.

And the best bit IT'S FREE.

YES FREE HEATING. UNHEARD OF.


With the help of our electronic waste oil heater controllers with the thermostat, have made waste oil heating very safe.

There's no more fluxuations in the temperature anymore.

The dual timer controls the upper temperature so the heater now sits at 500c or what you decide set it at.

And the thermostat looks after the lower levels should anything ever happen, it will turn the oil & heater off.

So now we light the heater never needing to check on it's progress, and turn it off via the mobile app at night or let it heat all night too.

So my suggestion is don't buy a waste oil heater without a digital controller.

Or if you have a waste oil heater, get yourself a controller for your own safety because without one we all know, waste oil heaters operating only on gravity are very dangerous.


To give you 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 over $800.00 in 45 kg LPG bottles or propane per winter.

This is achieved with the waste oil heater setup outside the home, heating water in a small 7 metre copper coil, which thermosyphons up to a 2.5 metre x 500mm double skinned radiator situated inside our lounge, this radiates a constant heat output of 75-80 degrees c. 

As the water cools in the radiator, it falls back down to the heater to be reheated, 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/building inspector/customer from the council. Thankyou C

We purchased an Ajax Valve and a relief valve, with a 3.7 metre head after plumbers advice too.

The Ajax valve connects to the mains water supply keeping the loop full of water.

The Ajax valve controlls pressure in the loop, and the head of water on the relief valve.

So should water pressure increase in the loop, it will exit out, and the mains water supply will automatically top up with the small amounts of water which exits the loop, keeping the loop always full.

We have since been told that these pressure relief valves can and do fail, so we have removed it, and gone with the open 4 metre tall open vent.

The whole radiator is hot, which heats the house beautifully, to the point where it needs turning down in the evenings.

The timer oil pump, is operating at between 14 and 6 second delay, and pumping oil for 1 second.

One twenty litre  now lasts all day or 2-3 nights heating.

This heater burns clean.


The thermostat has been fitted, should the fire or in our case the water temperature ever drop below 40 degrees C the thermostat will kick in and turn the oil pump off, stopping oil spills. You should alway have your heater sitting in a cut down drum capable in holding the same amount of oil as your storage tank ideally 20 litres.


These heaters can either radiate heat, or they can heat water too.

Once you start heating water you start dealing with pressures which get very hot and extremely dangerous, so you will require a

 Licensed Qualified Plumber to make your system safe.

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.

USE A PLUMBER 

They are very expensive, and they charge like wounded bulls, but it's still better than scolding family members.

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.

The Ajax Valve, necessary for reducing the town water pressure down to your loop pressure you need.

The above pressure release valve no longer required.

I was watching a video on Youtube and this guys release valve or safety valve was a small hole in the boiler with a stick poked into it, if the pressure built up too much in the 45kg cylinder the stick popped out before the cylinder popped, maybe ok in the 1950's.

I don't think I could risk that with these heaters.
















Heaters on their way to warm up customers life's. 

Thanks for your support.

Wifi gadgets, when it comes to waste oil heating we think is important to know just what's going on with the heater at all times.

We now have two wifi plugs connected to the waste oil controller & fan, one which I use to turn off the oil flow, then 15 minutes later I turn the fan off. Being wifi you can turn them off from anywhere.


 I just recieved a Sonoff TH16 today, which run through the wifi and displays a current temperature of the radiator in our lounge which is currently 70c. So now I can check the temperature anywhere, if the temp is too low or high an alarm rings on the mobile and i can bypass the timer or the thermostat and turn the heater off even if i'm shopping in town. There's also a wifi camera. A common old smoke detector outside near the fire, so I do think we have all the bases covered now.  The Sonoff th16 is $40.30nzd should you need one. Can be use to turn appliances on and off at certain times and run the for a length of time, a very clever little white box.










What have we been up to?
Building burner blowers
With cylinders converted into heaters.
Spa pool heaters
And building the old wood fire hot plate for cooking on
Invested in a pipe bender so no more cutting and joining the bend.

Our Sandblasting costs have tripled this year alone.

So we have been looking into other ways to remove rust and paint without the cost, noise and the mess of sandblasting makes, so are looking towards electrolysis.

Electrolysis works by using Sodium Carbonate with a scap piece of steel to collect the rust and rubbish. This piece of steel takes a positive currency from a battery charger and the cylinder or item you wish to clean holds the negative terminal.

Leave it overnight and let the process take place.

Wire brush of any paint still on your steel, clean down with a rag and it will be back to bare metal.




Heater now finished ,very pleased it works, and  operates cleanly as you see in the video.

This heater is for sale, it's been tested, & painted heatproof black paint.

Heater only $580.00 NZD or  With copper coil $749.00

Comes with fan, Fan speed controller, Fan grill, 12 volt 100-240volt ac adaptor & AC cord, blower unit, copper oil line, 2 metres plastic tubing and  fittings to connect to a 20  litre container. Instructions how to  light.

She's a good one and still available.

Timer pump delivery system.

We would love to hear your, comments, input, and any questions you may have regarding waste oil heating.
If your building your own heater e are here to help, we have years of testing, designing, these, so if there's anything you want to find out, like how to burn this oily stuff cleanly, then just ask, we are here to help anyone..

Waste oil heaters if left going un-attention without a timed controller pump system, can become extremely dangerous. 
using needle valves and wheel valves to control oil flow won't always work, why, because as the oil supply warms up the consistency of the oil, causing the oil to flow faster, if your storage container is full or near empty, even this affects oil delivery to your heater. 
By removing these variables and controlling oil flow with a pump, will turn these heaters into a reliable consistent heat source which we have found can't be accomplished satisfactory using taps.
What can also help, is if your heater is inside, keep your oil supply outside and vica versa.
The problem we see with waste oil heating, it's not if it can heat an area, it's controlling its heat output so it doesn't turn your cylinder red-white hot. By controlling the oil input to a measured set amount every so many seconds,, your heater will never overheat again. The timer pump units really does work well. A very worthwhile piece of mind, investment for your home built heater.
We have now added the thermostat to it, to control the lower temperatures.

We've built & designed a free safe heat source over the years, which can now be turned off by your mobile phone, so now you can heat everything for free, from your home, business, sheds, workshops, spa pools, hot water cylinders, radiators, swimming pools, aircraft hangars, glasshouses, chicken rearing sheds, even calfs milk. We even built steam boilers to remove honey wax from your hives.
So if you have something you need heated give us a call we would love to hear from you.

We operate in any currency you choose, thanks to Paypal. We can send you a payment request.

If you're living in the United States these heating savings can run into thousands of dollars.
I have a customer who brought a blower unit, said we saved him $25,000USD in Propane alone, every winter.
Not bad for an outlay of $193.00 USD. I can't believe the saving you people are coming back with, really are incredible, I'm so pleased this is doing exactly what we thought it would, save everyone money in heating and removing waste oil. from the planet
We now need to look into gasifying Plastic too although I think China has that sorted.

Canola, vegetable, olive, oils which are fine to burn because they are outside of the HSNO Act.
Engine oil, also a waste product, and they say a hazardous substance well yes, maybe if you burn it in a rubbish bin lid,, nowdays or oils are synthetic, still fine to burn in a purpose built heater. 
Eighty percent of the world's waste oil is burnt either for heat recovery, or generating electricity.
New Zealand produces 35 million litres of waste oil a year, a fair amount of it being burnt by Westport Cement, & hot mix asphalts, greenhouse growers, and a little wee wee bit by drip fed customers. I think the Huntley Power Station also burns it.
Our customers and ourselves have been burning oil for heating for around 9 years our family all in good health, no health issues, neighbour wouldn't even know we are burning oil, it's that clean. I asure you if this black gold was hazardous we'd know about it, and we certainly wouldn't be using it for heating, nor would any other business in town be allowed to use it.

In saying that you still need to be very careful with it, as this guy contacted us with these issues.
#If you are getting headaches, Feeling Sleepy, stop using your heater as it may be letting out carbon monoxide into the room.
We have just been talking to Andrew who converted his existing wood firebox, and the vents were allowing gases to escape into the lounge. Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer be very careful. 
Our advice, get rid of it today. He's building one of ours now.
Thanks Andrew.















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.











This mister coupled with the fan blade and the auto lighter turns into this waste oil flame thrower in the image to the right.

We have now tested this and our findings are; they are messy, by spraying oil, noisy because a compressor is needed and almost impossible to light, so we won't be going any further with these burners.

We have a great system with what we have already so no need for this stuff.

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.

There was a very little to no smoke as you can see in the video.

Just shows you exactly how clean burning these blower/burner units operate.

Currently painted black and ready to be ship.

We have 10 available.

Made from a 9kg gas cylinder capable in heating a cold double garage size of shed.

Comes without a flue, in kit form so you'll have to bolt the unit together which it very easy.

The Bellow heater is for sale for $189.00NZD plus freight.

Comes with oil tubing and brass fittings, needle valve to control the heat.

Blower/burner unit & oil supply.

Complete with pot, where the fire takes place in.

Fan, fan guard, fan speed controller, 12 volt power adaptor wired up.

4 bolts, spring  washers and nuts.

If you're interested in this little beauty, and would like one sent you one then please email us. 

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 $399.00 nzd plus freight, $20.00 Nth Island $39.00 Sth Island.


The Straight nose $380.00nzd 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…

Many thanks

Graham.

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.

#Left is a video of the blower burner unit in action as is without it being installed in a cylinder. 
Shows the Dual timer in action too.








Grahams, Twisted blower burner unit now heating everything.

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.

To operate the termostat press the left button once and alter the temperature by the + or  - on the right.

It can operate both hot and cold temps but this option is H or C by holding down the left button for a couple of seconds and altering with the + & - buttons.

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.

Now with free thermostat fitted
Certainly a must for any home made waste oil heater.
Timer comes pre-set 9 sec delay 1 second pump, this controls the upper heat setting and the thermostat controls the low temperatures so if the heater dropped below a set temperature the oil flow and the pump stops.
Stopping the oil flow after the flame has extinguest is very important, otherwise the oil continues to flow until your storage tank empties out.
No one has this option other than us.

WIFI controller.

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 or $52.00 nzd plus freightBUY 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 complete blower burner unit.
Pictured above
These are the burner units we use in all our heaters.
Operate similar to a computer fan, but a lot more powerful, they blow the oil into the pot making the oil burn cleanly. 
These fans are now Imported from Germany.
The fans come with a fan speed controller..
The blower unit will burn at a rate of 1.2-1.8 litres of oil an hour. 
238,000 BTU's or 7 kilowatts.
The above blower pipe, comes with oil line, fan & fan speed controller, with a 240 volt 12 volt power adapter, complete with needle valve.
 This can be fitted into any cylinder. Cut a 60mm x 60mm hole in the side of your cylinder set the burner end at 60-80mm from inside the bottom of the pot
 Give us the radius measurement of your cylinder, and we can weld the plate on the pipe to your measurement, making the blow pipe sit in the centre of your pot. This will then bolt onto your cylinder. Check out Parts to builds your own tab for prices.
All the parts are available to be sent world wide, just not our Gas cylinders as they are only for NZers. You can use old compressor cylinders or large diameter pipe from a drilling company just blank the ends off.

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. 

Blower Fans.

 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.

Built to fit the larger 45 kg Gas cylinder heaters.

1 metre long blow pipes x 375mm wide x 1 metre long.

Really not require.

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.

This heater has been fed too much oil, showing the chernobyl effect.

We  have managed to get the freight cost down a little bit more.

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.
