Recommended Testing Supplies | Back To Top
When making Biodiesel, even with a BioPro, testing is crucial! We've grouped together a list of testing supplies that we commonly recommend to new BioPro owners.
Learn more about how to perform our recommended tests here
Deluxe Water Test Kit - Test oil & Biodiesel for water content
Deluxe Water Test Kit | Back To Testing Supplies | Back To Top |
- Measure Water Levels In Oil & Biodiesel Like A Pro!
We recommend no more than 1500 PPM (0.15%) free water in oil and no more than 500 ppm (0.05%) water in finished Biodiesel. With accuracy clear down to 50 PPM (0.005%), this deluxe water test kit is perfect! It's one of the preferred testing devices by commercial Biodiesel plants & small producers alike! Click here to learn more about this great water test kit!
BioPro Go/No Go Test Kits | Back To Testing Supplies | Back To Top |
- Know If Oil Will Work In Your BioPro Fast!
Before you commit to an oil source, test the oil with one of these great BioPro Go/No Go Tests! They work extremely fast and are easy to use. Simply drop 1 mL of oil into the test vial, shake, and watch for a color change.
If it passes, the free fatty acid is low enough to work in a BioPro! The tests are set at 5% FFA content
(the recommended limit for the BioPro automated cycle) and beats the heck out of having to titrate.
Biodiesel Conversion Test Kit | Back To Testing Supplies | Back To Top |
- Check Your Biodiesel For Full Conversion!
This simple, easy to perform test will let you see if your reaction went to full completion. Known as the 27/3 Biodiesel Conversion Test, it's become the de-facto test to perform every time you make Biodiesel. It lets you know if you actually made well converted Biodiesel.
This test should be performed every time you make a batch just before you remove the glycerin. If it doesn't pass, you can
re-react the batch before it gets washed (a major bonus!). The vials and syringes are reusable and simple to use.
We do this test on every batch we make & recommend you do to.
Deluxe Soap Test Kit | Back To Testing Supplies | Back To Top |
- Check Washed Biodiesel To See If All The Soap Is Removed
When Biodiesel is made, soap is produced as a by-product. Biodiesel is then washed either with water or a dry wash system to remove excess soaps. Soap is the major cause of plugged fuel filters and, if left in the fuel, can cause deposits on fuel injectors and inside engines.
By measuring soap levels in Biodiesel, you'll be able to identify if the soap has been sufficiently removed. Our deluxe soap test kit has everything you'll need to get started performing this important test and includes a great set of instructions too! Learn more about soap testing and about this kit
Additional Accessories Back To Top |
In addition to our recommended accessory list, below are some items that also are helpful to have around when using a BioPro. Everything from tools to help get Potassium Hydroxide into a BioPro 190 to cool, upgraded catalyst scales & special lids for sealing catalyst containers. As before, we indicate in each description why you might find them beneficial to your BioPro setup.
BioPro 190 Catalyst Plunger - Makes adding KOH easier!
BioPro 190 Catalyst Plunger | Back To Additional Accessories | Back To Top |
- Perfect For Getting KOH Flakes Into Your BioPro 190!
If you're using Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) with your BioPro 190, then this is a must have item! This catalyst plunger makes adding KOH so much easier. We designed it to be just slightly smaller than the catalyst opening on a BioPro 190 so that it would effectively push all of the KOH catalyst into the methoxide tank.
It's made of solid PVC and will hold up to the catalyst extremely well! After using one with our BioPro, we're hooked and sure you'll enjoy it just as much as we do!
MyWeigh KD-7000 Biodiesel Catalyst Scale | Back To Additional Accessories | Back To Top |
- Upgrade To A Heavy Duty Catalyst Scale!
It has a capacity of 7,000 grams, which is well within the amount you'd use on a BioPro. It can weigh things
in grams, kilograms, ounces, and pounds & ounces. Just keep an eye on it. My wife likes it so much that
I have to rescue mine from the kitchen all the time.
SealPro Resealable Bucket Lid | Back To Additional Accessories | Back To Top |
- Seal Your Catalyst Away From Moist Air!
BioPro Catalyst (NaOH or KOH) will absorb moisture extremely quickly if left in the open air, which then reduces it's potency. By sealing your catalyst with a SealPro lid, you'll ensure that it stays air tight. Simply snap the patented ring onto any standard size bucket or pail and spin on the removable lid.
The SealPro lid has a double gasket system, one on the ring and another on the threaded lid, ensuring an air tight fit. With it's twistable top and seal it allows you to easily access the contents within the bucket and quickly seal it back up keeping moisture and contaminants out.

Whether you need to drain off glycerin, transfer methanol, or even store Biodiesel, these carboys are perfect! They're made from heavy duty HDPE which means they hold up extremely well and they're completely chemical resistant.
We've used them to store sulfuric acid in, transfer glycerin around, pre-mix methoxide, store Biodiesel in, and even store
wash water! They completely seal so if they're accidentally tipped over they won't leak. The lids have a 3/4" threaded
center as well. We even stock spigots, lids, and vent caps too!
Inline Water Strainer | Back To Additional Accessories | BACK TO TOP
