We have another customer Glen in Tutari Cell 021 660 172. He's heating a stainless steel milk vat of 1700 litres which is using to feed 500 calves last total I heard was 250 currently but more are on their way i'm told. He has his heater running all night on low then turns it up in the morning and gets the 1700 litres to boiling. Sight to see I'm sure. The neighbours are keeping a close eye out on this new system.
We have just had 4 more dairy farmers contact us last week and they are contacting the above before getting back to us.
Glen thinks his power savings would be somewhere around $1200 per month. We are yet to confirm the exactly, as he's running his of a 12 volt car battery.
The heaters these guys are using are the 45 kg heaters with 30 metres of copper coils fitted inside the heater.
Burning about 1.8- litres an hour of waste oil or canola oil.
A drum of waste oil will last 114 hours burning approx and burn cleanly without any smoke.
