CF Upgrades

I installed the "booster" to my WVO Designs CF. It helps put the dirty oil down at the bottom of the bowl where it gets introduced to the column of spinning oil more gently. This helps prevent spashing/mixing of the dirty oil into the clean oil and prevents floaters in the dirty oil from bouncing off the clean oil and ending up in the clean oil stream. Before this, I had the dirty line down on the bottom of the CF, but this does a much better job.

So far, I've spun about 150 gallons through it and it gets a lot more stuff out of the oil this way and the stream of clean oil coming from the CF is visually clearer than without it. I'm very happy with it and it was definitely worth the $100 to me to install it.

Rerouting the vent tubes and drip port...


Bottom of the lid...


I have the nipple so the tip goes just inside the booster. So now the oil goes right down into the middle of the bowl and feeds the dirty oil directly to the bottom/side of the bowl through the booster. This is a much less violent way to introduce the oil to the bowl.

Nice. I have an absolute centrifuge. I run the post cf'd oil through a 1 micron filter sock to my clean barrel. I have to change the filter sock every 300 gallons or so. I believe the the buildup on the filter sock is from the bits that fly out of the cf bowl upon entry. I added a longer feed pipe that leaves only about a 1/16th to 1/4 inch of drop before the oil hits the bowl. This helped, but I think that booster will be alot more effective. Was that purchased from WVO designs?

Yup, I got it from WVO Designs. You could check with them to see if it will retrofit your bowl or ask at Absolute to see if they have plans to add a similar feed cone to their bowl.

Nice upgrade Muns

It looks like the feed troughs on that booster are adequately sized.

I'm fighting the splashing issue with my simple CF. I don't have it tamed yet, but I guess I might have to rethink all the feed cone data.

I've had some thoughts on splash reduction. Currently I have a hole drilled in the center of my cf lid letting out steam when needed. What about putting a heavy plastic plate ( with holes for steam ) that hovers just above the top of the bowl ( using center vent hole to mount ). It would work best if it had a lip on it that coned down just inside the lip of the bowl. That way, all splash would hit the lid and go back into the bowl to be properly pulled to the walls of the bowl, leaving just enough space for the clean oil to exit.
