X-Ray oil

Anyone have any thoughts on how to get rid of the oil from an discarded xray unit. There's about 20+ gallons.

Best bet is to find a local oil recycling company. Some require PCB testing first. It can also be burned in a waste oil type heater.

Call a oil recycling business. Sometimes they require it to be tested.

Tiki torch??? ;)
I am not sure actually how it burns, you may actually be able to take it into a local oil change facility for disposal, they have tons to rid themselves of on a daily basis. I think most is burned in their facility heaters.

There are federal regulations regarding the testing, transportation, and disposal of dielectric oil. I would recommend familiarizing yourself with the EPA regulations to make sure you don't break any federal laws pertaining to testing to determine the PPM concentration of PCBs, and disposal. There are PCB test kits available for sale, and if it is over 50ppm (I think) you can call a company that disposes of contaminated oil.

Had the same issue in Australia, I ended up mixing it into my diesel fuel at a 25% mix, so saved my some money and as it is an oil and fairly thin didn't harm my engine.

Not sure if you can do this in the USA though,

I use to put 5 litres into my diesel car's fuel thank when the tank is not empty. Be careful, maybe it is illegal in your country. Taxation purpose.

Hello Mike
You can consider to give it to local garage (replacing oil in motors).
Best Regards

Technically speaking there is nothing against HV oils burned inside diesel engines. You can use cooking oil used or straight from supermarket shelves though it is more expensive not in case 100 miles from next station.

Tibor, That was my point, Bio fuel. Somebody will be happy to get 20 Gallons of diesel for free.

hello, I suppose this is oil from machines that were discarded of. Be aware, some of that oil may be the highly carcinogenic PCBs, none biodegradable. x-ray had is a hi voltage transformer. in older machines transformer oil, I have heard: specifically US made was PCBs. please look it up. this is info that I came across when I was trying to handle X-heads and repair. PCBs are banned now.

Always wise to be careful. For US equipment they have been banned since 1981 and I have never seen it. X-ray equipment oil is transformer oil and it is accepted for recycling at many places that accept other oil.

it was band in 1979. the oil was make in the US by US Chemical Cos. you are correct it is wise to be careful. it is also responsible to be conscious. PCBs looks like any other oil, I suppose. so, one would not know if he/she has seen it or has come in contact with it. one should do the responsible thing and take it to a waste management Co and let them know what it might contain. I would suggest to Amoako Eric to visit the site below so he gets some info on what he has in his position:
