Used oil burner testing

Post by Tony From West Oz » Sun 03 Aug, 2014 2:45 am

I am building a burner to install in our home heating stove. The stove has a "wet back" which allows us to boost our solar hot water system in winter. We would like it to also provide hydronic heat to the house, as it is ineffective in heating the rooms at each end of our home.

I have made a video of the burner testing arrangement and the burner in operation. At full power it uses less than 3 litres of used oil per hour and at low power, less than 1 litre per hour.

It has been uploaded to Youtube at http://youtu.be/0ebtjmkpCoQ

Hi Tony..A plumber related a story how he used a "wetback" stove to a friend whilst he was in the states...got a shock reaction from his friend..apparently "wetback" is a derogatory term..a faux pas or socially akward saying... and to be avoided over there!!!..he used "jacketed" instead from then on!!
