Thinking green in 2008 means more than just being environmentally-friendly. For users of Clean Burn energy systems, it also means saving money on soaring energy costs.
Engineered to burn used oils generated by cars, trucks, heavy equipment, boats and other vehicles, Clean Burn furnaces and boilers transform used oil into free heat. Tens of thousands of Clean Burn products located throughout the world burn millions of gallons of used oils each year on-site, at the point of generation. This volume of used oil would otherwise be transported on highway systems and pose a considerable risk to spills and/or contamination to the environment.
“Clean Burn used-oil furnaces and boilers turn a waste product into a valuable fuel source, thus conserving our natural energy supplies while reducing spillage risks,” says Michael Shirk, president and CEO of Clean Burn. “The multi-oil heating systems, storage tanks and recycling centers used by auto service centers, auto dealerships, truck fleet service centers, marinas and other facilities meet all EPA requirements and help avoid the possibility of used oils entering our water supplies.”
According to Shirk, every gallon of used oil burned for heat recovery saves money that a Clean Burn customer would otherwise be spending on fuel oil, natural gas, propane or electricity.
“This is a ‘win-win’ situation,” says Shirk. “Companies are generating free heat by using Clean Burn energy systems while doing their part to protect the environment.”
Clean Burn products are used widely in the truck fleet industry, by fast lube service centers, in automobile dealerships and in the heavy construction industry. In addition, the RV, home building and marine industries are also finding valuable uses for Clean Burn products to offset rising energy costs. Clean Burn’s Used-Oil Coil Tube Boilers recycle used oils into hot water technology for use in car washes, baseboard and in-floor heating, and ice melt applications. The company’s Low Profile Used-Oil Furnaces are ideal for small to mid-sized facilities, and those areas with limited ceiling heights. These systems can be utilized as unit heaters or can be ducted as central furnaces. Hot air discharge louvers can be installed to direct heat precisely where it’s needed in a facility.
For large auto or truck fleet service centers, the Clean Burn Large Volume Used-Oil Furnaces provide high volume heating capacity along with a patented true heat exchanger that delivers more heat. These systems can be used as unit heaters or can be ducted as central furnaces. Finally, the Used-Oil Recycling Center from Clean Burn is a self-contained, on-site recycling and heating system that allows businesses to store and burn used oil conveniently and efficiently. The Recycling Center works in tandem with Clean Burn used-oil furnaces and has a UL-listed 250 gallon storage tank that supplies oil to the furnace.
