types of vo and methyl esters?

Postby fro10987 » Wed Dec 07, 2011 4:16 pm

I have been in contact with a supplier that is telling me they have an abundance of oil but are not sure what it is. They believe it to be soy, palm and fish? probably mixed. they are not sure but have a company coming to test each of the containers it is in (80 ~275 totes and 200~55 gal drums)
My question is if anyone has had any experience running oils such as the Palm and or fish oil? They are supposed to send me the analyst report and I am hoping that will give me a good idea of what is in the oil. Annyone have a annalyst list of the different types of oils that could be compared to? I am not a chemist by any means so if anyone can help once i get the analyst I would be greatful and if this is something that is useable it sure would be a very good bounty to share with anyone in need!
