Customer Setups
Recently, WVO Designs, the maker of our Raw Power Centrifuge, Goldstream Monster Gear Pumps, Raw Power Fuel Pumps, and Raw Power Fuel Filter Heaters held a couple of contests inviting customers to send in pictures of their oil collection & filtering setups. The results of what they sent in was amazing! Lots & lots of awesome examples!

If you're looking for some great idea's on how to build an oil collection system, an oil filtering setup, or even how to convert your diesel to run on straight veggie (or in some cases even motor oi), then you'll absolutely love browsing through everything that was sent in!

Check Out Our New & Upcoming Products!
We've been keeping busy adding lots of great new products to the site! Check out the latest crop of cool products we've released over the last month! 

New Stainless Steel Sample Sizes
Stainless Steel Sample Sheets
We've added several new micron sizes to our stainless steel sample sheets!

We now have:
1000, 800, 400, 300, 177, 149, 100, 74, 43, 15, and 5 micron, plus 1/8" & 1/4" Mesh too!
They're available in 6" x 6" or 12" x 12" stainless sheets and come in several different quantities. We can also custom cut any of these micron or mesh sizes into larger sheets too! Just contact us for a custom quote!

New Stainless Steel Bucket Filters
Double-wall stainless filters

In addition to the additional micron & mesh sizes in our sample sheets, we've expanded our bucket filter line to include several new micron sizes as well! 

They're now available in:
600, 400, 177, 74, 43, 15, and 5 micron as well as 1/8" and 1/4" mesh too! Also, our 43, 15, and 5 micron have the benefit of being double lined filters! We use a 1,000 micron backer for strength & stability and then line it with the superfine mesh material. Here's a fun fact about our 5 micron stainless mesh. There are over 2600 wires in just 1 square inch of 5 micron material! 2300 running from left to right and 325 running from top to bottom. Yep! That's some pretty fine material!

We've also made our whole line of stainless bucket filters available to get the Extreme Duty treatment too!
Extreme Duty Bucket Filter Extreme Duty Bucket Filters
To get the Extreme Duty rating, we weld four 1/8" thick by 1/2" wide stainless bars evenly to the side of the filter for added support and then give it four heavy duty tabs around the top too! So how tough does it make them? Well, see those feet standing on the filter? They belong to a 185 lb guy and he's not touching ANYTHING! (click the picture of the feet to see the full picture--it's pretty cool!) Yep, we didn't mess around. These suckers are TOUGH!! And now they're available in every bucket filter size we make! 

Upcoming Products
Speidel Braumeister Beer Brewing Filter
Speidel Braumeister Brewing Filter This is a really cool filter that's in the works! It's a 300 micron 6" diameter by 16" tall with a 1/2" tube welded down the middle. 

It's designed to fit the Speidel Braumeister brewing systems. It's still in development, but if you'd like to be notified when it's ready, send us an email and we'll add you to the list. We'll also send a note out to our email list as well when it's available. 

Methanol Recovery System
Methanol Recovery System Our vendor in Arizona, Chandler Biodiesel, is busy working on developing a small scale methanol recovery system that can be used by small scale biodiesel producers to recover the methanol out of their glycerin and Biodiesel.
At the heart of the system is a 13 gallon capacity stainless steel recovery still with a reflux column and condenser on it; which is ideal for recovering methanol out of the glycerin from a 50 gallon batch of Biodiesel. They're also looking at developing a smaller 8 gallon unit as well.
Both the 13 gallon and 8 gallon units will be heated with heavy duty hot plates that provide heat to the vessel from the bottom which means that the glycerin won't be exposed to the elements directly for safety. The 13 gallon unit will most likely be 220 volt powered while the 8 gallon unit will be 115 volt powered.
If you'd like to be notified when it's available, send us an email and we'll add you to the notification list
