Heating Oil, WVO, and Biodiesel
Fuel Tank Heaters

Heating Oil, WVO, Biodiesel, and other fuels: If you have faced gelling and cold flow issues related to biodiesel, home heating, wvo, and other oils stored in above ground storage tanks during cold weather conditions, there is an economical and easier way to protect your heating oil against gelling - our Oil Heater.

If your home heating fuel, wvo, biodiesel, or other oils are stored outside in above ground oil storage tanks, totes, or drums, use our portable Oil Heater units to overcome fuel gelling, even in the some of the harshest cold weather conditions - all without using additives like antigel.

Protect your home heating oil from gelling without additives:

Fuel Heater

Model THU400X Series: Patent pending oil heater unit constantly senses and maintains temperature of WVO, biodiesel, diesel, and home heating oil in the above ground, outdoor storage tanks, totes, and drums to a preset 40°F temperature.

THU400H: Weatherproof whip configured for hard wiring.
THU400P: Weatherproof power cord using a plug.

THU400X

When used in conjunction with our home fuel tank thermal covers (specifically designed for home heating oil storage tanks), this fuel heater provides rock solid protection in some of the most severe weather conditions - safely, economically, and without the use of additives.

The oil heater installs directly onto the tank, tote or drum and helps protect stored biodiesel/diesel on construction sites as well as residential heating oil storage tanks from gelling. The fuel heater units come with a weatherproof cover (not shown in the picture). How it works and specifications - THU400X

Heat and filter your biodiesel feedstock oils - all at once: Oil Heater

Model BHU800F: This patent pending oil heater unit is the latest addition to our line of fuel heaters. Model BHU400F is designed to heat biodiesel feedstock uniformly.

Test data suggests heating a 55 gallon drum from 40°F to 120°F in little over 8 hours. The heater offers additional performance benefit by heating oil and filtering it at the same time. Fuel heater units are safe - particularly important for Poly containers, because they don't come in direct contact with the container such as the WVO drum, tote, or tank.

This pre-processor unit installs directly onto the tank, tote or drum. After the fuel heater unit is connected to the power source, the unit can be activated by a single lighted switch. The heating unit comes with a weatherproof cover (not shown in the picture). How it works and specifications - BHU800F

Two-line tank fuel heater for wall mounting:

Model FTH6002: This is a two line heating unit designed for two line heating applications to prevent freeze-ups and reduce costly service calls.

This tank fuel heater unit mounts near the return line and automatically maintains the outdoor stored fuel at 40°F. Ideal for biodiesel and home heating oil applications. Only runs when needed. Operating costs can be as low as $50/year when used with Thermal Tank Cover. Tank oil heaters help reduces soot as the heating oil viscosity increases. Also, oil furnaces and burners run at optimal efficiency and lower costs. These fuel heaters come with a cover (not shown in the picture). Heating Unit FTH6002 Specifications

Facts about Oil Furnaces:

  • Heating Oil Furnaces and Burners run efficiently on No. 2 heating oil or biodiesel without fuel additives.

  • Mixing kerosene or other chemical additives with home heating oil lowers the gel point but reduces heating efficiency and increases heating costs.

  • Maintaining the correct fuel temperature using our fuel heating unit, and eliminating the need to mix kerosene or other chemical additives will result in significant SAVINGS for each gallon of fuel consumed.


How it works and specifications - THU400X

How it works: Once the unit is direct wired or plugged in, it can be activated by a single lighted switch. When activated, the unit begins to operate the pump to determine the temperature of the stored fuel using an immersion fuel sensor. After the pump has operated for approximately one minute, the time/temperature controller reads the fuel temperature from the sensor. If the fuel temperature is below 40°F, the unit continues to operate the pump and the silicone heater (400W) until the fuel sensor determines that the fuel temperature has reached 40°F.

If the time/temperature controller determines that the fuel temperature is above 40°F, the unit shuts down for approximately one hour and then automatically begins to operate the pump unit for one minute to again determine the fuel temperature. This cycle continues automatically to protect stored oil against gelling.

Specifications:

  • Overall dimensions: 6" dia.x 14" height; 8.5 lbs.; mounting - 2" NPT Male
  • Max. Operating Environmental Conditions: +30°F to +85°F @ 0% to 90% RH
  • Input Power: 110-120VAC 50/60Hz.; 14-18 Gauge IE320 connection cord or whip
  • Fuel tank/drum connection: 2" NPT Female, Optionally 1-1/2" and 3" NPT Male
  • Temperature sensor: 40°F
  • Heating Power: 400W


How it works and specifications - BHU800F

How it works: Once activated, the unit begins to operate the pump and heating element and starts to filter and heat the WFO. When the WVO reaches a temperature of 120°F, the unit operates the heating element only, as needed, to maintain the WVO at 120°F during the remaining filtering. The unit includes two 13in2 filters, a 50µm and a 100µm for fine particle elimination, a WVO pump unit, 800W heating element, a pre-set temperature sensor and a high temperature safety limit switch enclosed within a weatherproof 6” diameter plastic housing.

While used primarily for heating oil and filtering it before converting the biodiesel feedstock into fuel, these oil heating units can also be used to heat WVO and biodiesel from gelling in cold weather conditions.

Specifications:

  • Overall dimensions: 6" dia.x 16" height; 8.5 lbs.; mounting - 2" NPT Male
  • Max. Operating Environmental Conditions: +30°F to +158°F @ 0% to 90% RH
  • Input Power: 110-120VAC 50/60Hz.; 14-18 Gauge IE320 connection cord
