Here’s an updated description from Dave:
Here are pics of my set up with your centrifuge, controller and monster pump. I love this set up now almost 3 years later and the only thing I would add is a seperate pump not so powerful for pumping out the clean fuel. The centrifuge is amazing and your monster pump kicks butt!

Thanks for everything, also included is my external port install so I can just pump right into my WVO tank in my Jetta from the outside. This shot was just after install and had not wiped away the excess black gasket seal. Such a great way to go! I pull up to the station in my garage and fill like a pro!

Here’s the description he sent in when he first built it.
He even gives an awesome description of how it’s setup!
Here are my photos of the set up I did to work with your awesome pump and centrifuge. My whole life of WVO has been so wonderful since building this. Actually on my wish list is one more pump so that I can dedicate one to waste and one to clean fuel especially with the new gear heads you have now.

I used two industrial totes that I scavenged.

I got 4 waterbed heating pads (two per tote) off ebay for about 25 each. 100.00 Iremoved the plastic container and I taped each to the tote with foil tape and then I used foil surfaced insulation 3/8 thick 1.5 sheets per total of 3 at 25.00 each so 75.00 plus foil tape 20.00 and carefully enveloped each tank in foil and dropped back into the frame and stacked them. I live in a very cold climate and the tanks are in the garage so in the coldest of winter I can heat them up some for filtering and movement of fuel.

Per your recommendations I got plumbing extended from the bottom of the lower tank so that I am adding the clean oil to the bottom of the tank and not the top fittings and parts about 30.00 Built a table 4’x 2.5′ and surface area of wall 1.5 sheet plywood and some 2x4s about 50.00

One 4’x8′ sheet galvanized sheet metal I had cut into two pieces for the table surface and the wall behind. 60.00

From WVO designs I got (I think this would be the updated list and prices per your website) WVO Designs extreme raw power Centrifuge -6000 Rpm $1497.00 Raw power Centrifuge Booster $100.00 I used an older version but would get the 25gpm WVO transfer pump now. $547.00 I got the 1″ hose kit $125.00 Centrifuge Bolt On Heater which you currently have as $297.00 (essential) plus some extra hose and fittings from you guys basically another kit $125.00

Purchased and electrical box big enough to cleanly house the controller and plug outlets and wire etc for about $100.00

I mounted the controller inside the box and measured the cover so that the controller only part would be exposed with wiring safely behind. I cut the opening 1/8′ wider with drill and jigsaw and then I took vacuum hose line and sliced it on one side and made a gasket around the edge of the opening so the controller would fit with a nice look and seal from oil and exposure. I wired in a plug housing with a switch on the wall so I could leave everything in but switch it off. This is good because the controller is on even when powered down. So flip of the switch and I can make sure it is all off.

I mounted the water heater controllers on the wall and plugged them in. Spent about another 50.00 on misc. parts for plumbing connections and to make an air vent for the out line. I found the clean oil flowed better with an air vent but you need to have it up high so that you don’t get misted oil dripping down. I glued metal water hose filters on the openings of this vent to prevent oil from coming out.

I am super happy with your products and support. Been using this for 2 years without a hitch. Super clean oil and easy process. Total budget From WVO Designs: $2691.00 total (worth every penny) Total other parts per above about $500.00 Super nice system and very happy experience making fuel.

Rick’s “WMO Refinery” that utilizes a WVO Designs Raw Power Centrifuge
I am a huge fan of WMO. I have 2 2000 7.3 trucks as well as a 1997 7.3 motor home as well 3 1987 Merc. 300D’s The two top tanks are for the WMO. The bottom right tank is pump diesel and the lower left tank is the centrifuged oil and that I will add the pump diesel to. I have a DC transfer pump in the cabinet. I cut out the bungs of a 55 gallon plastic container and epoxied them into the corners of the lower tanks to blend the oil and diesel as well as add diesel to the lower right tank. The cabinet also has a male camlock that I will connect to for the purpose of pumping the oil I have gathered to the top two tanks. There are two valves that determine which tank gets the oil. There is also a check valve behind the camlock that keeps the oil from coming back down when I disconnect my pump. – Rick

This is an amazing setup! Be sure & watch the steam pouring out of the top of his centrifuge too as it dewaters his oil!

Matt’s Installation
I use a WVO centrifuge in my WVO cleaning system, I am happy to provide you with some marketing material. Here is a example photo that I have kicking around the collection. – Matt

Gerry’s awesome centrifuge setup!
“My setup for processing WVO and WMO in Fort Mcmurray, Alberta Canada. I
use the valves pictured to move both waste and clean oil with single
pump. When pumping the product that has been cleaned in your centrifuge
I flush the lines first into the dirty barrel and then throw the valve
to output to the clean barrel or direct to the fuel tank in my Veggie
powered SUV. The weak point of this system is the pump which works but
is slow to prime (especially in the cooler weather!). – Gerry”

“Here is my set up. Like everything else we started with 2-55 gallon drums. In the yrs we have upgraded. The wvo designs centrifuge has given me nothing but great results. During our plan to gravity feed I knew we were going to think outside the box (shed) so we decided to place the tote on the exterior of the building and the valves are inside to shut it down when not in use.

Luther’s logged at least 1000 gallons of WVO through his centrifuge & loves it!

Larry in California
We reprocess and clean our cutting oil from our threading machines, and also reclaim the oil from the wash process. All of this goes into the settling tanks (upper right), gets pumped over to the Process tank (upper left) where it is released into the centrifuge. The good oil ends up in the lower left tank (where its returned to the machines) and the waste/overflow goes to the lower right, where we can let it settle again and run through the process one more time.
Our Cutting Oil supplier tested our reprocessed oil and let us know it actually is ‘better than the original product’ as far as purity and lubricity! – Larry, CA

Toby’s on board centrifuge

Marty’s Awesome Setup!
In the first pic you’ll see my oil room which is in my basement.The oil has been rough filtered through a barrel filter. The drums of WVO get pumped through the pvc pipes attached to the wall.There are two valves. One for the left tank and one for the right tank. The next pic shows the two tanks . The oil gets gravity fed through the WVO Designs centrifuge with the heater and into either a 5 gallon cubie if I want SVO,or into the the calibrated poly tank if I’m making biodiesel. From the calibrated poly tank the centrifuged oil is gravity fed through an underground 1 inch pipe to the shed out back of the house. Then it goes into the Appleseed reactor, gets processed and ends up in the poly settling tank to the left of the reactor. From there it gets pumped into the poly wash tank sitting directly behind another WVO centrifuge. From the wash tank it gets pumped up to the poly tank sitting horizontally near the ceiling and is gravity fed into the second WVO centrifuge and into the poly holding tank under the centrifuge. From there I can pump it outside to the storage tank. From there it can be pumped into the vehicle. – Marty

  1. I have a centrifuge purchased it from WVO design, and love it. In the process of redoing my station at this time but would like to post on your sight if possible. I do have a question if you don’t mind. Think I have it figured out but would like some input. When running the centrifuge if my input is too fast it runs out the bowl drain and I have to slow it down, could the stock filter that is on top of the cf be stopped up and could I replace it with a tube that went through to the outside to take the moisture out? It is currently taking me 8 plus hours to do 55 gallons. Ps it is very clean. Also it gets very steamy inside the station while processing.

    • For removing water, remove the two ports from the top. The filter is actually just a breather port to let in air. Most people take them out if they’re trying to dewater though (There’s a really sweet video on this page with a centrifuge running that you can literally see steam just chugging out of his ports on top).

      As far as running it too fast, if you can heat the oil up it’ll let you put it through the fuge quicker as it lets the oil flow faster. If you have a 3450 rpm model, about the fastest you can go is about 5-10 gallons per hour. If you have a heater & cone booster, you could probably bump it up to 15.

      If you have the 6000 rpm, the heater, and the booster cone, then you can max it out at about 20-25 Gallons per hour. As long as the oil is really good & heated.

      But yep, take the ports off on the top.

      Happy Fuging!
