Hey guys, so I didn’t see a thread about this outside the one listing the WF manufacturers so I figured I can start a new thread asking this.
So in terms of scaling up, all I hear about WF’s is that their speed is far faster than a short path(depending on the size of the WF). However the downside is the oil will almost always need to be ran through multiple times.
Besides that, I keep hearing that a WF cannot take on crude unless it’s been vigorously winterized/decarbed/carbon scrubbed/de gummed. In other words you did everything you possibly could to remove the gunk from your crude. And from what I heard, this is the only kind of crude a WF can take on. Otherwise, anything that’s got a fair amount of fats and lipids and other gunk will make a WF perform poorly. Is this true? Can WF’s take on “normal” crude or can they only run through perfectly prepared crude?
Appreciate any input.
