Furnace Burns Used Crankcase Oil
The Kutrieb Co., manufacturer of one of the most popular waste oil burners, and located in Milton, Wis., says hundreds of FARM SHOW readers responded to stories in previous issues on waste oil heaters, with many asking where they could buy a furnace large enought to heat a large barn or house.
"Farmers want them not only for heating buildings, but also for drying grain and other agricultural uses," says Les Marzahl, president of Lenan Enterprizes, national Kutrieb distributor. "One farmer, for example, was ganging five 100,000 btu models
10 cents a gallon to guarntee themselves a supply. Marzahl says you get the same or up to twice as much heating value from waste oil as from No. 2 grade fuel oil. If desired, you can burn regular fuel oil in the new Kutrieb furnace by changing the discharge nozzle.
The new Kutrieb furnace is 54 in. sq. and stands 90 in. tall. Weighs 1,150 lbs. Sells for right at $4,995.
Kutrieb now offers waste oil burners ranging from 40,000 to 500,000 btu's. Although the latter is too large for most homes, Marzahl says a new forced air, 140,000 btu furnace coming out this fall will be ideal for home use.
