The Energy Logic EL-340H Waste Oil Heater can help many businesses that generate waste oil save on heating costs while eliminating a hazardous waste disposal headache. The EL-340H can heat a shop up to 8,500 sq. ft. (789.61 sq. m.) while disposing of your used oil at a rate of 2.25 gallons (8.7 liters) an hour while the burner on the heater is running. Energy Logic has been in the waste oil heating business since 1984 when Wayne Robertson, an environmental lawyer originally formed it under the name of Black Gold, which it operated under until 2002 when the company was renamed Energy Logic.
Vehicle repair facilities are typically difficult and expensive to heat due to the doors frequently opening and closing while letting vehicles in and out, the ventilation requirements for running engines indoors, and the cold mass of a vehicle that was stored outside while awaiting servicing. In addition to the heating requirements of the facility, disposing of waste oil drained from crankcases, transmissions, gearboxes, brakes, power steering and hydraulic systems had to be properly disposed of with a myriad of legal requirements. These requirements involved waste generator reports, licensed waste haulers, waste disposal facilities and cradle to grave tracking and liability with small payments being made for the oil in some cases while in others the generator had to pay for disposal. Wayne Robertson realized that the environmental laws allowed waste oil generators to burn the waste oil in waste oil heaters and save thousands of dollars in heating costs while eliminating their waste oil disposal problems and the cradle to grave liability. Many service facility owners have seen the logic in turning waste oil into valuable fuel oil with the purchase of a waste oil heater for their facility.
The Energy Logic EL-340H Waste Oil Heater has an input of 340,000 BTU (99.6 kW/hr), which will warm 2800 CFM (79 cu. m/min.) of air 100 – 120 Degrees F (37.8 – 48.9 Degrees C) as it passes through the heater heating a shop of up to 8,500 sq. ft. (789.61 sq. m.) The EL-340H is available as the heater alone or with an optional 250 gal. (946.35 liter) workbench height tank provided. The heater alone weighs 545 lbs. (248 kg) and the heater and tank combination weighs 895 lbs. (406 kg). Many repair facility owners buy the heater and tank combination then use additional storage tanks in a remote location for off season storage using a transfer pump to fill the EL-340H tank as needed for heating. The Energy Logic EL-340H has a stainless steel heat exchanger for corrosion resistance and the system is UL Listed. The system requires a 120-Volt 25-Ampere dedicated circuit for power to run the heating unit. The EL-340H is supplied with an analog hour meter that tracks burner run time for cleanings, an integrated air compressor, a barometric damper, a draft gauge, and a blower. Optional equipment includes various fuel tank sizes, and dual air outlet louvers. The Energy Logics EL-340H is also supplied with a 3-Year Warranty on parts and a 10-Year Warranty on the heat exchanger pro-rated after 5 years.
The Energy Logics EL-340H Waste Oil Heater is an excellent choice for a service facility to end their waste oil disposal headaches by converting it to a heating solution.
