Looking for an easier way to dry oil & Biodiesel out faster? Want to speed up your operation?
Then you'll love our drying tank kit! It'll help speed up drying tremendously!
Instead of taking days or weeks waiting for the water to settle out of your oil or Biodiesel
or bubbling for days on end, you can now speed the process up by using a time proven method
for fast drying! It's called heat & circulation and it can dry your oil & Biodiesel free
of moisture much, much faster than settling or bubbling!
The Spray Nozzle Is The Secret To It's Success!
While we've seen several heat & circulate systems out there, the spray pattern
Dry Pro nozzle is flat out
Instead of creating a mist out of the oil (which would end up everywhere but in the drum),
our Dry Pro nozzle generates a fine film of heated oil
that sprays across the whole drum.
The large surface area generated by the spray pattern from the nozzle allows the
water to quickly evaporate leaving the oil nice and dry.
This unique spray pattern allows you to get the maximum surface area for water to evaporate
out of while keeping the oil where it belongs; in the drum!
Add a simple household fan blowing across the top of the drum and the water will evaporate even faster!
This is because the air flowing across the top of the drum literally sucks the evaporated
water vapor out of the drum and wisks it away.
You'll Be Amazed At How Well It Works!
You'll absolutely love how well this method works! From the day we started offering the Dry Pro nozzle
on our site, we immediately started receiving positive feedback on how well it removes water.
The nozzle has been so effective at drying oil that it was even featured in a
Waste Oil & Filtration workshop at the
2008 Collective Biodiesel Conference!
Brad Crafton from the Mississippi Mineral Research Institute praised it for how well it dewatered waste vegetable oil
in preparing the oil for use for Biodiesel production!
We've even had people that were so amazed at how fast and how well it dried the oil that they called
us back the same day they installed it to tell us how great of a spray nozzle it was. We couldn't agree more!
Learn How To Test For Water Content
Once you've got your drying tank built, you'll need to test the oil or Biodiesel to see how dry it's getting.
Click here to learn the three
different methods that you can use to test oil or Biodiesel for water content. We also sell a sweet
Deluxe Water Test Kit that'll
let you test clear down to 50 PPM (that's 0.005% Water Content).
Recommended Maximum Water Limits:
The lower you can get the water content in the oil, the less soap it will be prone to making.
Water in the finished Biodiesel can also cause havoc on fuel tanks, fuel pumps, fuel filters, injectors & diesel engines.
Here's our recommended maximum water levels:
Waste Vegetable Oil: - No higher than 3,000 PPM ( 0.3%)
Biodiesel: - No higher than 500 PPM (0.05%) (ASTM D2709)
Easy To Use Transfer System!
While it's great to be able to dry the oil, we've added a great transfer system to the kit that makes
it really easy to transfer all of the dewatered oil or Biodiesel right out of the drum!
Just attach the transfer tubing to the quick connect fitting on the drum, put the other end in the container
of your choice, open the ball valve, turn on the pump and watch the dewatered oil or Biodiesel pump
through the clear tubing! Then, once you're done, you can attach the included quick connect caps onto the transfer
tubing to keep everything nice & clean!
See It In Action!
Click on the video above and see the drying tank in action! We highlight the complete drying tank, show each of the components, and then
fire it up & spray oil through the dry pro nozzle! We also show how easy it is to empty the drying tank using the transfer hose.
The Complete Drying Tank Kit
While we've sold the Dry Pro nozzle for several years, we're now pleased
to offer a complete kit for building your very own drying tank from a 55 gallon steel drum! The kit includes
all of the plumbing required to build the circulating system including a transfer pump, black steel pipe, ball
valves, the Dry Pro nozzle, a heavy duty 1200 watt band heater, and some tubing and quick connect fittings
to empty the drum using the same pump once your oil is dry!
Easy To Assemble
The kit is really easy to put together! Drill a hole in the bottom of your drum.
Weld a 1" Close fitting to the drum. Screw on the pump, attach the transfer pipe, mark & drill the upper hole,
attach the rest of the plumbing, tighten everything down, connect the band heater, and you're ready to go!
In just a couple of hours, you can have a ready to use dewatering tank to get your oil or Biodiesel as dry
as possible in record time!

We also include a printed copy of the assembly instructions with each kit.an easy to follow set of instructions and a
diagram to get you up & dewatering fast!
Instructions For Using The Tank:
1- Fill the tank up about 2/3rds of the way
2- Turn on the heater and bring the oil temperature up to at least 100° F
- The hotter you can get the oil, the faster it will dry
- CAUTION: If temp gets above 212°, the water can boil causing splatters.
3- Turn on the pump and start circulating the oil
4- If possible, blow a fan across the top of the open drum. This can help to speed up the process
5- Pull a sample from the oil periodically and test the water content
6- When it's dry, turn off the heat, connect the hose, open the ball valve, and transfer the oil to another container
