How to make diesel fuel from used motor oil?

With a uncertain price of crude oil and high cost of fuel, many new technologies are emerging that provide consumers alternatives to simply pulling up to the nearest gas pump and filling up. As an added benefit, these new fuel alternatives are cleaner burning and less harmful to the environment than regular gasoline and diesel.

Converting used motor oil to diesel fuel, which can be used in any diesel burning vehicle or generator, is becoming more popular, not only for its relative simplicity but also due to the abundance and minimal cost of obtaining used oils. Most small garages keep discarded oil in huge containers that they pay to have removed. This helps keep the overall cost of the ready-to-use fuel.

Then how to make diesel fuel from used motor oil?

First, to pump dirty motor oil into oil distillation plant.

Second, we need to heat dirty motor oil and keep it in a best temperature for best diesel quality. Fuel oil will be converted to diesel oil gas when get heating.

Then our cooling system will cool diesel oil gas into diesel.

Next pump diesel into odor and color removal system for remove which will purify further diesel with special catalyst.

Finally, you can get 80%-85% diesel from our converting motor oil to diesel fuel plant

In fact,except the 80%-85% diesel,you can also get 15%-25% asphalt.They have a wide usage in our daily life.For the 80-85% diesel oil ,you can used it into heavy machinery,gernerator ,and boiler.For the 15%-25% asphalt,could be used for paving ,or directly sold to asphalt refineries for further refining.

Now you must be very clear about how to make diesel fuel from used motor oil working process. However, except how to make diesel fuel from used motor oil? Most customers are concerned about the profitable situation through the process. As some customers who have basic understanding of the equipment,they will directly ask us about the profitability of the equipment. Taking five tons of refining as an example, we have made the following profit analysis for your reference:

ROI Analysis For 5T/D Oil Distillation Machine
Running Cost / Day
Waste engine oil 5Ton * RMB1800/Ton = RMB9000
Heating fuel (Diesel) 0.4Ton * RMB4800 = RMB1920
Catalyst RMB600
Electricity 15Kw/h * RMB1*20h = RMB300
Water Water is for circulation use, no consumption
Worker 2 * RMB100 = RMB200
Income / Day
Light oil (Diesel & Gasoline) 4Ton * RMB4800 = RMB19200
Oil sludge 0.75Ton * RMB1100 = RMB825
Profit / Day RMB8005
