ckSmithSuperior uses Injection Blending to make precise Bioheat blends
Bioheat, the combination of biodiesel and standard home heating oil, is the safe, energy efficient, and clean future of home heating oil, when blended and delivered properly. Bioheat is part biodiesel, reused plant, cooking, vegetable or other discarded oils, and standard home heating oil in certain percentage blends, like 20% bio and 80% heating oil or B20. Currently ckSmithSuperior delivers a B40 blend, where the fuel you're getting to your home is 40% biodiesel and 60% home heating oil. The key to safe and reliable bioheat is through the blending process where bioheat is created. All home heating oil starts with 5% biodiesel, the remaining 35% is blended into the home heating oil through injection blending. Injection blending is where the biodiesel is injected right into the home heating oil, another blending process is called "splash" blending, where the desired amount of biodiesel is just added to a delivery truck, like adding cream to your coffee in the morning. Splash blending can create uneven levels of bioheat inside the delivery truck, where the top of the truck could be 20% bioheat and the bottom could be 80%. Injection blending allows for precise blending amount all controlled by a computer, below you can find a link to a video that showcases the exact injection blending system ckSmithSuperior uses.

The techs were excellent at answering my questions and giving detailed descriptions of not only what they were doing but why. They were very informative. Great guys. I haven't had any furnace problems since they were her.

Just so you know, I seldom give the highest rating in these polls, so "Satisfactory" to me means very good. I know companies also use these polls as part of their employee evaluation process.

Nick was the technician scheduled to do our Annual Furnace Check and Maintenance.
He arrived on-time and was very pleasant. The furnace room is in the basement, next to my home “office”, where I was working today, and Nick was very professional and did his best to complete the maintenance as quietly and quickly as possible.
An impressive and professional young man.
