Beware of ebay processors, I've seen some pretty abominable stuff out there! However, this system seems decent. You could build your own for less than 500$, but its not a bad system.

However, there is one caveat that I can't tell from the pictures.. Thats a 55 gallon SS drum, but if its configured for an open-top reactor, its worthless. However, if its configured as a sealed reactor with a sealed methoxide adding method, and provisions for vapor recovery, then its OK. At this point there is no excuse for selling something as unsafe as an open-top reactor when sealed reactor designs are common and simple these days.

peace,
sam

PS I'll be attending the conference in NC, if any other forum members are going too, we should make sure we connect out there!

A little to pricy for my wallet right now, definetly a sweet set-up. I really like the trailer so you can drain the fryer oil right in without having to transport it all home, then dump it in.
