Burning straight WMO in 1960's era Perkins 6-354 genset

Hi all,

So W85 has worked awesome for me for 3-4 years now and straight WMO for my homemade waste oil furnace for 8 years.

I am now running into a problem - too much oil. I have cultivated some pretty good connections for getting my waste oil over the years but get more than I can use - have close to 9000L settling, and this is the busy collecting season, need to buy another tank.

ANYWAYS,

I was getting ready to go off grid and drop 20G's on batteries/invertors etc and use my Perkins 30KW genset (600 orig hours) to charge them when a friend of mine slapped me upside the head and asked Why bother with the batteries? Run the gennie 24/7 - your fuel is cheap enough.

Ran the numbers and would cost me $270 to run for a month - elec is $600 month so not bad.

Then I remembered someone on here was running straight WMO (I think) so here is what I was thinking.

-Run Straight WMO, preheat oil (coil in exhaust/coolant before IP) and if required put some inline heaters right in front of the injectors.
-Run water injection for coking.
-Maybe set up a dual fuel system with d2 for startup/.shutdown like the fryer guys do - used for servicing as unit runs 24/7
-def'n up the service interval


*My waste oil furnace runs straight WMO based on the premise that oil is heated to 170 before atomization with compressed air (nozzle like a paint gun)

What thinkest ye all? Doable?

Thanks John

Absolutely. Wish I had the source you do. You've got the requirements down. Just have to put the plan into action.

I would love to hear how this goes, what kind of IP does the 354 have?
