Instructions on setting up your new waste oil heater.
Bolt the blower burner unit to the cylinder with the 4 bolts provided.
Get a 20 litre clear plastic container for your oil storage.
Connect the 10mm open plastic tube to the blower burner 3/8 copper oil line pocking out on top of the fan box. Use hose clip provided to secure.
Plug in the power test the pump and fan.
Fill the 20 litre oil container but filter it using a mitre 10 orange funnel or similar, and a kitchen sieve with the handle removed so it can sit inside the funnel. If using hydraulic oil this isn't necessary.
Fill the container have rags at the ready.
Keep the filling area free from oil drips clean them up straight away.
Lift the container of oil higher than the pump. Start the waste oil controller. Turn on the bypass switch down on the right hand side of the box for the pump to activate. Remembering it's a 3 way switch
Wait until the oil gets to the pump, then the oil storage tank can be placed on the floor, stopping gravity feeding.
Keep it going until the oil reaches the pot then stop the oil flow.
Make sure the waste oil controller box is fixed to the wall at a height which you can access easily as you will be changing delay times every now and the, higher than the oil supply or again the oil will gravity feed, and be pumped at the same giving the heater too much oil, therefore creating smoke.
Put a small square of cardboard 4" in the pot with 1/2 cup diesel and light it with a gas torch.
Turn on the fan and let the diesel get going, after a minute or two start the waste oil controller. The diesel may smoke but will clear when the oil starts burning.
Your heater will roar into life getting hotter by the minute.
The thermostat has a rating up to 110 degrees C so your going to have to work out a place on the heater which won’t go over 110c possibly near the base of the heater or by the yellow tape which is on the blower pipe.
It has been factory set at around 30c so that my need to be altered to suit your situation, maybe 38c is a good starting point. To change the thermostat press the first button on the left to review the current temperature, it's altered by pressing the plus or minus buttons on the printed circuit board will increase or decrease the thermostat temperature. Once the temperature has gone over your set temp and the little light on the thermostat has turned on, turn the thermostat switch on side of the controller box to the up position, to let it control the lower limits.
So now if the heater dropped in heat to below 30 or 38c the thermostat will turn the oil and the heater off. However the next time you go to start it you’ll need to turn the switch down so the pump will operate when you want the oil to flow but the heater is cold.
The dual timer you can be change the delay time of 3-14 seconds and a pump time of 1 second. Should you want to increase the temperature shorten the delay time, not by increasing the 1 second pump.
To do this press the middle button 3 time to get to the 6 second delay time, then press the right hand button until you get 7 seconds, then confirm by pressing the middle button once until the 7 or 6 seconds starts counting down.
Remember all the time oil is been pumped into the heater as your doing this, so either turn the thermostat switch off to stop the pump or learn it and do it bloody quickly. We have supplied a data sheet on the dual timer.
The Rule of thumb, going off our heater, the low temp is 13-14 second delay, and high is 2 - 3 second delay, but you’ll work yours out pretty quickly. Just don’t over supply the oil as it will smoke badly. If you do you’ll end up with too much oil in the pot. If this happen wait unit it cools pour that oil back through the filter and start again. Don't lit it when there's a pool of oil in the pot I'll just smoke badly.
All the best be safe, it will teach you it’s ways by a couple of weeks. Do keep an eye on it at first you start it up because sometimes it can go out. Remember different oil can burn better than others so you'll need to alter the timer when changing from Waste car engine oil, to say Hydraulic oil. Also if your into a new batch of oil which someone has dropped off, just give it a quick smell test to make sure it's not all petrol with a little bit of oil in it. And if you do smell petrol maybe to get rid of it, mix it with oil 90/10 and mix it in.
#Please don't use petrol, as it's not very, but BLOODY dangerous, it's not the petrol, it's the fumes which you don't see, god help you, if you put it in a hot heater the fumes will extend 2 metres out from the heater, it will become a bomb. If you lit it you'll be encased in flames and the explosion. The heater will be fine, but you tend to loose the flue into the neighbours, you burn the skin off your legs, arms, and face and tend to end up on the ground in lot of pain. And if that's not bad, the worst thing of it is cleaning up all the soot which ejected out the flue like a rocket, which has gone everywhere. Been there, done that, and I do not not recommended it.
Please, Please don't use Petrol it's like lighting your fire with dynamite.
Keep it for the motor mower. Too expensive anyway.
