Heat Exchangers

The core component in vegetable oil conversions!!

The most efficient heat exchangers are aluminium brazed plate heat exchangers. These are small in size and using coolant water they heat up exceptionally quickly and deliver vast quantities of heat to the fuel.

See why heat exchangers are important here

Please note: These heat exchangers can be placed before the fuel filter to heat the fuel prior to filtering. However, care should be taken to ensure the fuel is clean and of good quality since the heat exchangers contain baffles between the plates and these can become clogged by large particles in the fuel.

BioTuning compact heat exchanger for vegetable oil conversion of diesel engines


This is our new, improved model of the compact heat exchanger.

Designed by BioTuning specifically for vegetable oil conversions in passenger vehicles, this small and highly efficient heat exchanger is exclusively to BioTuning. It has a massive array of baffles between each plate ensuring that the surface area in contact with the fluids is HUGE and inducing turbulence to ensure the heat is mixed throughout the oil. This provides the equivalent of more than ten metres of hose in hose and far superior to glow plug heaters or metal blocks sold as heat exchangers. It is 50% larger than the similar heat exchangers and has much more practically arranged hose fittings.

Hot water is provided by the vehicles coolant water which travels within the heat exchanger through alternate plates. The vegoil passes between the plates of hot water and exits at the same temperature as the cooling system.

This heat exchanger is built to very high specification for automotive applications. TUV certified. It is constructed from aluminium which has class ‘A’ rating for materials compliance with mineral diesel and vegetable oil and has exceptional heat conduction properties.

  • Material aluminium
  • Cooling water 12 mm hose connections
  • Fuel 8mm hose connections
  • 12 plates
  • 94x62x53mm (LxWxH) plus bracket and fittings
  • for vehicles delivering 18+mpg
