junk settled after cf/

Postby gary » Thu Feb 12, 2009 8:37 am

I followed the standard cf parameters and because I went through polishing filters prematurely in the past, and I dont haVE A CONE BOTTOM DRUM, i LEFT THE LAST 2-3 GALLONS BEHIND IN THE 55GAL BARREL. THE NEXT DAY THE OIL LOOKS SUPER CLEAR BUT THERE IS fine BLACK SETTLed junk on the bottom...When I reach down in the barrel with a large spoon and srape the stuff it just settles...it does not mix up...any thoughts?

Its probably particles that settled while you were running the CF, I get that too.

If you go through polishing filters, you need to run the CF longer, or only polish with the VO hot since PHO/fats will clog them.
