I am sure they can send you the motor specs like the model # or shaft size and type and motor RPM. Then you can buy the centrifuge minus the motor and you can buy a 240/50 motor in the UK and probably save a few $100 especially because the motor is the heaviest part and going to cost the most to ship.

The one that DFA sells is from Simple Centrifuge ...putting a centrifuge in every garage!


Check out Graham Lamings Biodiesel site, he has alot of parts that are relevant to UK. Like I think your water heater elements have a thermostat attached. I would kill for one of those here in the states!!
Graham's biodiesel docs.
Yea I know what you mean. I actually remembered that I have a single phase motor & dug it out today. It's a50hz motor. I'm not sure if this would be any good for this application or not. I'm not sure if I could mount the fuge bowl to the motor shaft.

It looks bad but it's been stored since 95 it was hardly used.


Well I have been made a very good offer by Leon @ Wvo Design. He says he will not charge me postage if I send him a picture of his Raw Power machine next to my limo. www.gothiclimousines.co.uk

I'm hoping to buy a Veggiestroke kit, but they have not replyed to my email yet. As they sell the "Simple Centrifuge" I have asked them if they will do me a deal if I buy the Veg kit & a Fuge from them.
If money were not the issue which fuge do you guys think is the best?
The fuge from WVO Designs will include a heater with a thermostat & I believe that the Simple centrifuge does not come with a heater.

.


I'm thinking ......not without some fancy machine work. The simple centrifuge rotor in designed to put on a specific size shaft. They have a propriatary nut that holds it on. It is more or less friction fit with a nut to hold it snug.

If memory serves, the motor you have is a threaded shaft, female. So my gut feeling is no. Not to say it cannot work, but it isn't gonna be easy. Sorry. JMHO from looking at the photo you posted, and what mine looks like.:dunno:

Yea that was my main concern tring to fix the bowl to it. Thanks for you input dude. That has confirmed my thoughts. I'll forget this motor then. In your opinion which is the best fuge? Raw power from wvo designs or the simple centrifuge?
Which one do you have?

there are motors that can be had for 150 dollars or so that should work with the bowl they sell, I would not machine one to fit a used motor

I got my first batch of motors, and my first batch of bowls back from anodizing, they look pretty good, I am going to do about 50 of these, I have the std size, and have made ones that are one inch larger in diameter for more force, and volume, I just gotta figure out how to post pics......

the bowl slides over the shaft, the collar on the shaft sets the bowl height, and the top is fastened with a normal nut and washer, no 50 dollar trantorque nut

cheap, easy, simple
