FireLake Waste Oil Heaters
Stop wasting your waste oil! If your provincial or municipal juristiction allows it, a waste-oil heater by FireLake is not only a great way to heat your shop, but a great way to help the environment at the same time. With the FireLake 155, Firelake 200 or Firelake 315 models, using your old oil can pay for itself by totally replacing other expensive heat like propane and natural gas. These waste oil heaters also come in complete packages which include everything you need, so you can be up and running in just a few hours.
Firelake waste oil heaters are built to last for decades and are engineered to safely burn every type of used oil you can feed it; crankcase oil, vegetable oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic oils, cooking oil and synthetic oil to name a few. Don't pay to have your used oil taken away and disposed of when you can recycle that oil into pure heat for your shop or business.
Fleet repair shops, commercial truck repair shops, dealerships, lube shops, transmission repair shops and trucking companies can all take advantage of up-cycling their oil to provide a safe burning heat source that can pay for itself.
Please check your provincial and municipal regulations to ensure burning of waste oil is allowed and to secure any permits required. Babco is in no way responsible for ensuring that this product is allowed in buyers jurisdiction.
