Clean Burn manufactures three types of used-oil furnaces for different sized operations including the compact used-oil furnace (Model CB-1400), low profile used-oil furnaces (Models CB-1750 and CB-2500) and the large volume used-oil furnaces (Models CB-3500 and CB-5000). The company also produces used-oil coil tube boilers (CB-200-CTB, CB-350-CTB and CB-500-CTB) that recycle used-oils into hot water technology for use in car washes, baseboard and in-floor heating, and ice melt applications. The company’s used-oil recycling center works in tandem with Clean Burn used-oil furnaces and is a self-contained, on-site recycling and heating system that allows businesses to store and burn used-oil conveniently and efficiently.
Tucked inside the famous red Clean Burn box exists a complex heat exchanger and metering pump. The heat exchanger provides businesses with more heat with less oil, and covers 250 percent more surface area for greater heat transfer than that covered in a typical blast tube.
According to the company, the oil combustion technology incorporated into Clean Burn products features a combination of a pre-heater block, ignition system and special retention head that makes the unique. More heat per gallon of oil is captured with the energy retention disk. This results in more useful heat being delivered to the work area and less wasted heat being sent up the chimney, the maker said.
“The fascination with our products comes from the results,” says Michael Shirk, president and CEO of Clean Burn. “We enable people to take thousands of gallons of used motor oils and recycle them through our boilers and furnaces to reduce their energy costs and to increase cash flow. With the rising costs of fuel these days, that’s enough to get the kid in any of us excited!”
Clean Burn furnace systems include in-line washable oil filters, vacuum gauges, wall thermostats, check valves, tank filters, barometric dampers and oil supply pumps. Only the best, most proven components and technologies go into these boilers and furnaces so that recycling used-oil can be an efficient and profitable operation for our customers, the maker said.
There are 80,000 Clean Burn functional furnaces and boilers located throughout the world that burn millions of gallons of used-oils each year on-site, at the point of generation.
“We are strong advocates of environmental protection and energy conservation,” says Shirk. “Our energy systems eliminate extra handling and transportation of used-oils while providing an economical way to re-use waste oils. It just makes sense to use something again rather than giving it away. All our products meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.”
Clean Burn products are used worldwide to recycle energy for car dealerships, automotive service centers, car washes, trucking companies, heavy equipment manufacturers and transportation sources.
Clean Burn holds numerous industry certifications and works with the U.S. government, the EPA and various associations to help coordinate the establishment of standards and regulations related to heat recovery and recycling efforts involving used motor oils.
