New Centrifuge on the market

A new "turn key" or CF components are available. Check this unit out - www.absolutecentrifuge.com Specs on cleaned oil looks pretty darn good.

I saw the AbsoluteCF in action and cleaning WVO. What is different, a side from a lower price than anything on the market to date, is the fact that the manufacturer has had the oil professionally tested and POSTED the results. I don't know if any of the other CF manufacturers have their spesc posted. Got to give it the Absolutecentrifuge, that separates him from the rest of the pack. Very good workmanship. Definately a professionally made unit. I like making things and ACF is offering just the CF bowl and motor. Good price to boot.

At the monthly meeting of the Greater San Diego Greasers' meeting, the Absolutecentrifuge was there for viewing. Lots of discussion about the construction of the aluminum CF bowl, metal work, samples of cleaned oil and quick disconnects to clean the CF bowl and samples of oil that were CF'd via the ACF. Also, three oil samples (one virgin used as the base) will be analyzed and the results will be posted. On the cost side, an introductory price of $1200. Not bad for turnkey CF. Also offered are the CF bowl and motor/ registration plate for those who want to build the rest of the CF and save a bunch of money.

Couldn't find the CF you referred to in your post. Would you post the link? I don't think you can beat the introduction turn key price for the ACF.

I helped Absolute test the prototype in my garage and all I can say is it works extremely well. We ran approximately 250 gallons of oil thru it with no issues. I have a Ron Schroder Upflow heated up flow system that I have been happy with but the Absolute when run slow and cold pulls a lot of the fats out that could create a problem in my wife's single tank Elsbett Mercedes. The clean up of the bowl is extremely easy and the noise level is relatively low. The thing I like the most is the fact that don't have oil at 90 lbs pressure to leak. The original price was targeted to be in the $1,400 range but due to economy Absolute is selling them a $1,200 to get them out there. This is a real professionally built product that works and for the time being marketed at a discount.
