40 gallons of really nasty centrifuged oil

this is what I got after CF'ing for 2 hours at 130 degrees. cleaned it out then ran it again for another hour and got some really nasty gritty stuff. I cant believe I was even considering a regular filter. I bought this CF setup from a guy in Vegas that was moving for 250$. The bottom is banged out to a cone shape and it has a 110v heater at bottom. Dishwasher motor with an acura integra power steering pump. I was grossed out a little when I started cleaning out the CF with my finger.

that looks like either water contamination or PHO. did your source switch oils on you? ahve you verified your 130* temp to be sure your element is working properly?

Yeah the oil I get has a little HO in it so to get it out I settle my oil for 2 weeks then run the centrifuge cold for 30 minutes and that builds up and then I heat it up. Yeah I have a thermometer on the outlet of my CF.

If you heat up that sludge does it turn liquid? a good example is lard. its solid at room temp but heat it up and it turns liquid and you could burn it in your truck if you can keep it hot enough.

yeah it turns to liquid but I dont trust it because it was around 65 degrees last night when I took that picture and it was pretty solid.

Its probably fats or lard. Did this oil come from chicken fryers?

If memory serves me, it takes about 120* to melt it. My oil all has a few inches of that at the bottom of the cubies.
