Businesses looking to save on energy costs and reduce their used oil disposal liability can turn to Clean Burn. As the world’s leading manufacturer of used oil furnaces, used oil boilers and used oil recycling centers, Clean Burn helps businesses worldwide generate free heat from used motor oils and petroleum based fluids commonly used in all types of combustion engines.
“A typical business can save thousands of dollars annually on their fuel bills, depending on the volume of used oil they generate and the current cost of alternate sources of fuel,” according to Michael Shirk, president and CEO of Clean Burn. “The purchase of a Clean Burn system results in an 18 to 24 month return on investment, on average. Following this short payback period, Clean Burn systems allow business owners to pocket the annual savings that they had previously spent on fuel. In addition, the liability related to the transportation and disposal of the used oil is significantly reduced.
“Clean Burn products allow businesses to recycle used oil on-site to generate heat. This is an environmentally-friendly process that is a ‘win-win’ for every user. A Clean Burn customer reduces the risk of spills and contamination to the environment, significantly lowers their fuel costs, and recoups their investment on the unit within a very short time.”
Typical businesses employing Clean Burn products to recycle used motor oil include automotive dealerships, automotive service centers, fast lube centers, truck fleet service centers, car washes and operations using large agricultural equipment. Clean Burn products are also used in the industrial/marine industries, the recreation motor home industry and in waste management/pollution control industries.
“Any facility that generates used oils on-site has the potential for significant savings with Clean Burn systems,” says Shirk. “The return on investment is tremendous and the reduction of risk to the environment is significant.”
Clean Burn Products
Based in Lancaster County, PA, since 1979, Clean Burn manufactures a variety of heating systems to help small and large businesses recycle used oil on-site, and to provide free heat while preserving the environment.
Products available from Clean Burn include:
Used-Oil Coil Tube Boilers recycle used oils into hot water technology. The recycled used oils generate hot water for use in car washes, baseboard heating, in-floor heating and ice melt applications. UL listed for use in central heating systems, the Models CB-200-CTB, CB-350-CTB and CB-500-CTB can be used in combination to create a boiler system for any facility.
Low Profile Used-Oil Furnaces are ideal for small to mid-sized facilities and those 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. Used-Oil Furnace models CB-1750 and CB-2500 comply with all EPA regulations and can burn a wide range of used-oils for free heat.
Large Volume Used-Oil Furnaces provide high volume heating capacity for large facilities. These systems can be utilized as unit heaters or can be ducted as central furnaces. Used-oil Furnace models CB-3500 and CB-5000 comply with all EPA regulations, feature unmatched engineering and quality construction, and employ a patented three-pass heat exchanger.
Used-Oil Recycling Center 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.
There are approximately 80,000 Clean Burn furnaces and boilers in the worldwide marketplace burning about 120 million gallons of used oils each year on-site, at the point of generation. This volume of used oil would otherwise be collected and transported across our highways, posing a considerable risk of spills and contamination to the environment.
Clean Burn holds numerous industry certifications and works with the U.S. government, the Environmental Protection Agency and various associations to help coordinate the establishment of standards and regulations related to heat recovery and recycling efforts involving used motor oils.
