Pho questions

I've been searching around and haven't really found my answer. I just picked up a couple hundred gallons of greese. Looks like about 1/3rd of this stuff is "creamy soybean oil"? I'm assuming this is PHO? Most of them look like the same product but I've got a few where the bottom looks like the creamy stuff then turns darker a d more of an oil substance the higher it gets

I'm running a frybrid still/ skyskijason combo for filtering. Basically heating in a hwh draining off and once I pass a hpt I'm running thru a goldenrod style 12 mic filter to a chemtek 2 mic filter. I've run thru about 200 gallons thru it and it's worked great. No pressure spikes yet.

My questions are one , should I store the pho oil separate from my peanut/vegetable oils?

And 2 is this pho going to kill my filters a lot quicker?

I'm running a heated system heated tank and a hotfox so I don't think I'll have any issues running it. I'm more concerned with the filtering aspect. Maybe I just need to step up to a CF and be done with it

Put up some pics of the typical cubie. Im guessing what you are seeing is just fats and fatty acids in the bottom of the cubes.

As far as storing it seperate....i wouldnt bother. Mix it up. If your system is woking as a good one should, Clear or Creamy frying oil should be negligable in your system. What you should find is, that once the oil is up to temp, it all looks the same.

Furthermore, restaurant users of creamy shortening generally dont mix. They buy creamy or they dont. If its creamy frying oil, the whole cubie will generally look the same.

Here is a pic of all all dark brown cube. I know a restaurant will stick with one type of oil. But the guy I got it all from was collecting from several sources.

Have no idea. It's about 50 ish deg in my garage. I haven't heated any yet. I just picked it up the other day and been working since.

Explain the high titrating and hatched to the noob

In a nut shell, tritration is how used up the oil is. Hatched is when its used up, usually smoking or foaming in the fryer.

How does that equate to it burning in my rig?

lookslike batches i come across. i let it sit out in the sun for a few days, see if it "falls" out. the first 2 look like their ready for filtering.

If wanting a cf, i'vebeen running the pa-bio "pressure" cf for 2yrs now. Works awesome. Oil i get that he claims is already filtered..etc, i stillfilter and spin it. What ends up get'n pulled out and stuck to my rotor looks like mud....
