According to Clean Burn, its new Saturn 140 and Saturn 230 waste oil furnaces bring the potential for energy savings to smaller shop and garage owners worldwide. Customizable to meet specific heating needs, the efficient units feature an advanced burner design, fast installation and easy maintenance.
“Saturn products make it feasible for companies with lower BTU input to recycle used motor oils, hydraulic fluids and certain fuel oils,” says Morris Mantey, president and CEO of Clean Burn, manufacturers of the Saturn units. “Each furnace is UL listed in the United States and Canada, and complies with EPA regulations. These economical units feature a three-pass heat exchanger for greater efficiency and special internal combustion sleeves to maintain consistent flame heat. The furnaces are engineered from the ground up to burn all waste oil types so that companies can eliminate transportation hassles and costs associated with disposing of used oils.”
The 300-lb. Saturn 140 features a maximum BTU input of 140,000 and an output of 110,000 BTU. The unit has a 1/4 HP fan motor with a fan diameter of 20 in. and consumes a maximum of 1 gal. of used oil per hour.
The larger 450-lb. Saturn 230 features a maximum BTU input of 230,000 and an output of 180,000 BTU. The unit has a 1/3 HP fan motor with a fan diameter of 24 in. and consumes a maximum of 1.6 gal. of used oil per hour.
Both Saturn units feature the Saturn 100 burner, have metering fuel pumps and can operate on 115 volts, 60 Hz with a 20A circuit breaker, the company said. The units feature front doors and burners that swing out for easy cleaning every 1,000 hours. A smart control features auto-restart technology for safe, reliable ignitions.
“We’ve engineered the Saturn waste oil furnaces to help companies eliminate their heating bills,” says Mantey. “Even though these are a more economical option than our standard Clean Burn units, operators will get the same reliable factory-trained, expert installation and service offered by our technicians. In addition, each Saturn unit features louvers, canister filter, check valve and screen, a wall thermostat, barometric damper, connector block, oil and air supply components, along with bolts and fittings for assembly. This compact unit is ready to work from the day it’s installed and will pay for itself very quickly.”
