BJE is now carrying the Kaltey Commander Tank Controller, which is a completely automated system that ensures waste oil furnaces, waste oil boilers and used oil recycling centers generate free heat from used oil products and operate like they should.
The Kaltey Commander eliminates the need to manually monitor and refill day tanks that supply waste oil heaters with fuel. A float switch mechanism alerts a control device when the day tank level is low. The control device activates a high or low tank monitor that automatically starts a diaphragm pump to add waste oil to the day tank and then stops the pump at the proper fill level. A second valve control system protects against accidental overflow.
Kaltey Commander can be used for other self-regulating fluid transfer applications involving oil, diesel fuel, antifreeze, water and other fluids with low flash points. Visual and audible alarms warn of potential problems and can test the system for proper continuous operation.
