Quik n Dri WVO Biodiesel dessicant review

Overall=not worth it for WVO. It takes too much of it to see any results.
So I was having really bad water problems. It had been too cold where I live and heating to 130 degrees was doing nothing. Bought this stuff from fryer to fuel. 5 pounds for 50$. Im glad I won 235$ at craps in vegas last weekend because this stuff was a waste. I cant see it working any better for Biodiesel but my experience is with WVO. I'm not even going to go into details except I laid a bed of this stuff out and ran wvo through it and did not see the "claims" that are made on their website. Before finally throwing in the towel on this stuff I put a little orange juice oil in a glass container. Let it sit 24 hours and saw no change in color from the oil meaning the water was still there. I fixed my water problem in my oil by simply running it at 200 degrees for about 8 hours. It went from orange juice to caramel brown.
In the last picture the stuff on the bottom is saturated in oil quik n dry that did not absorb any water, the stuff in the middle is quik n dry that absorbed a little bit of water and the top is my orange juice oil. The company claims that oil will not interfere with water absorption but as you can see it does.

nice to see the pics and info. i think your the first to try this with wvo. good job.

i think this will work better with bio in a colum as stated. tubular031 used this type of stuff with success when he was making bio.

Yeah and thats why I specifically stated that I used it only on WVO. Im just a little upset about the dehydration claims. I was expecting a "sponge effect". My wife laughed at me because I was bragging about this stuff to her. My mom did tell me that I should try rice because in restaurants to keep rice from drying out they use oil during the cooking process and that I should try it but that will be later in the game.

hmm, rice. thats an interestign thought. high heat settle and use rice... i wonder if it will sink in oil, or if youll have to use a screen or something to keep it anchored...

either way, more heat and cf'ing seems to have solved your problem.
