Anybody use a Centrifuge?

Does anybody here use a centrifuge to clean and dewater WVO or BD? If so what brand? What pump to drive it? Pictures? Cost? source for equipment?

I am getting ready to order a DC 20. Out of all the options it looks like the best one for me.

Cost is $300 usd.

I just won a Spinner II off eBay last night so now I am on the quest for a pump. Hoping that in the next two weeks I will filter with a fuge!

Spinner II

Here is some Spinner II data that might help:
Spinner II 960 issues - Topic Powered by eve community

You won't believe how much crud that thing will get out of the oil! I've done two batches using a band heater. When we get back from vacation next week, I'm going to use Sunwizard's plans with the water heater elements to get the temps up to get the water out better.

I am using a dieselcraft centrifuge, Oil centrifuges for engine oil and Biodiesel WVO applications , it seems to work really well for filtering and de-watering wvo.It is very important to make sure you have a pump that will pressure up the centrifuge to 90 psi, as i found out hard way, after buying a pump and it only gets to 45 psi. DFA has a good pump that gets upwards of 90 psi Dino Fuel Alternatives: Centrifuge_pump, Pumps .Also frybrid has some really good ideas for a wvo filtering kit using a centrifuge Frybrid Vegetable Oil Fuel Systems -- Filtraion and Dewatering Plans . Hope this helps
