Vegetable Oil Powered Heating

Renewable Heat and Hot Water Solutions

There are many exciting ways to use renewables to decrease your organizations expenses by increasing efficiency beyond your transportation needs.

Using renewable fuels, like vegetable oil, for heating applications is now possible thanks to our relationship with King Built waste oil burners.

The Revolutionary HPC-1 Burner

What makes a multi-oil burner different? is a company built on innovation, and it’s the HPC-1 combination waste oil and veggie oil burner that sets apart.  The unique features of our burner are not available anywhere else. 

The HPC-1 Multi-Oil Combustion System has our exclusive patent pending HYDRONIC PRE-HEAT SYSTEM.  Our Multi-Oil Burner is designed to burn all forms of waste and virgin oils.  These oils can be either petroleum based or bio-based oils. Some examples of waste oils are: used engine oil, used transmission oil, used hydraulic oil, used gear oil, used cooking oil and grease, animal tallow – fat, glycerin from biodiesel etc… Some examples of virgin oils are: fuel oil #1, #2, #4 and #6, biodiesel, and vegetable oil from oil presses such as soy, canola, sunflower and camelina. These oils are thicker, and must be pre-heated before burning. All other multi-oil burners pre-heat the fuel with electric heaters.’s  HPC-1 combustion system preheats the oil with hot water, produced by the oil fire itself.

This unique, patent pending design prevents “baking” the oil, maintains the fuel at a constant temperature, and virtually eliminates carbon and grit buildup inside the burner.  What does that mean to you? 

  • Low Maintenance
  • Less Down Time
  • More Reliable
  • Energy Efficient
  • comfort in a safe product
  • Consistent, Dependable Heat, Inc.’s HPC-1 eliminates overhauling, cleaning and maintenance problems caused by electric heaters, as well as overall operating costs found in the competitor’s burners. The HPC-1 draws only 3.75 amps of electricity because the heat energy needed for preheating comes from the oil fire itself.  Competitor’s systems require as much as 4 times this amperage to heat the fuel with electric heaters—a process that creates carbon build-up, causing frequent burner maintenance. 

Choose your multi-oil heating system from that offers:

Safety—the safest multi-oil systems on the market
Efficiency—lower operating costs 
Savings—the system can pay for itself in as little as 1 year
Low Maintenance—because of the unique hydronic pre-heat design
Peace of Mind—and years of worry-free operation! 

KBB Waste Oil / Multi-Oil Burner

KBB Boiler packages are the most innovative boiler systems on the market today—perfect for commercial space heating and process heat energy.    

The KBB boiler package is capable of utilizing a multitude of alternative fuels, such as waste engine oils, hydraulic fluid, virgin and used vegetable oils, and glycerin (by product of bio-diesel). Non-traditional fuels must be pre-heated for combustion. The exclusive HPC-1 burner system incorporated in all of our KBB systems pre-heats the fuel with hot water created by the system itself, unlike all other burner units available that heat the fuel electrically. This hydronic heating of the fuel eliminates all of the problems associated with the electric elements found on other units, including carbon and grit build up, nozzle clogging, high maintenance and high energy costs. As these burners sit idle between cycles, the element continues to heat the fuels.  This constant baking creates carbonization, which clogs the system and causes burner failure.  It is common for these systems to require an annual overhaul, which costs up to $800.00!  The HPC-1 completely eliminates these problems and costs!

The boiler vessel itself is one of world’s finest boilers. Made in Germany, the “G” series Buderus Boiler vessels utilized in all KBB packages are designed for long life, maximum efficiency, and easy clean out. They are available in sizes from 150,000 BTU through 500,000 BTU input. The patented “no shock” system incorporated in all “G” series Buderus boilers eliminates the concerns of return water being too cold for the boiler. The hinged cast door can be easily and quickly opened for vessel clean out and inspection.

Note: We offer seven different models ranging from 150,000 – 500,000 BTUs of our KBB Waste Oil Burner. Please contact us about the different models we have available.
