Which is better to use for making bio diesel Sodium Hydroxide(NaOH) or Potassium Hydroxide(KOH)?
I've been using NAoH for 18 mo. Just switched to KOH and I'll never go back!
NAoH is a solid below about 80-90 deg, it's is NOT FUN to reheat enough to pour into my still for methanol recovery. KOH is a liquid down to about 40 deg!!!
It is a lot easier to "crack" the glycerol POST recovery, which gives you refined glycerin, FFA's, and a liquid fertilizer!! FABMANDELUX.
