The Inov8 F-125 waste oil heater is a 125,000 Btu input unit heater that will heat a garage up to 2,500 sq. ft. This Inov8 F-125 is quite different than many waste oil heaters. Many heaters that burn waste oil are constructed with little more concern than if they will reliably burn waste oil. Ino8 International Inc. has actually not only made sure the F-125 will operate reliably on waste oil but has paid attention to having it run efficiently and its efficiency allows the F-125 to carry the Energy Star seal. Inov8 International Inc. is based in La Crosse, Wisconsin and was founded in 1992 and has developed a product line of waste oil furnaces, waste oil burners, waste oil evaporators, and multi fuel boilers.
The Inov8 F-125 uses the Inov8 S200 burner firing into an aluminized heat exchanger at about .84 gallons per hour. The waste oil heaters because they burn waste oil require more frequent maintenance than other heaters, the additives in the oil such as detergents and anti wear additives, along with contaminants contribute to a higher amount of ash and wear components. Inov8 has designed the F-125 furnace and the S200 burner for easy maintenance and the instruction manual was written so a complete novice can provide the maintenance needed to keep the unit running. Inov8 also has an optional “Perpetual Warranty” where they will send you a replacement module for the burner that contains all the parts that typically wear and are subject to failure on an annual basis. Keeping the Inov8 F-125 running is as simple as cleaning the unit and swapping out the module. Included as standard equipment on the F-125 are many of the items required for installation such as a floating fuel pick up assembly, 120-volt wall thermostat, oil filter, check valve, barometric damper, and even the hanging brackets. Inov8 also can supply an optional bench type waste oil tank with brackets that mount the heater 8’ above the floor as required by safety regulations. The F-125 does require a compressed air supply of 2.0 cfm/30 PSI. which is already present in most shops, where other brands rely on a proprietary compressor that is part of the unit.
The Inov8 F-125 can burn a wide array of fuels many of which cannot be burned in the waste oil heaters made by their competition. The F-125 can burn crankcase oil, transmission oil, gear oil up to 175 weight, hydraulic oil, synthetic oil, commercial and military jet fuels, heat transfer oils, mineral spirits and some other solvents, and machine shop cutting oils. The F-125 also burns vegetable oils both new and used including canola, peanut, soybean, olive and corn oils where most other used oil heaters cannot. Some F-125 are even burning printing inks.
