Does anybody know if you settle dirty WVO in a steep cone bottom tank, can you open the valve on the bottom and have all the crud drain into a bucket?  
I hope it would work like this but it could just totally plug up the drain, no flow, or the clean WVO could find a path through/past the crud.
 
Here is a link to a tank:

Thanks.

It will work if you at least prefilter thru a window screen. Don't want fries and nuggets plugging it up. Drain slow to not start a hard current.

I'm using a 60 gal cone barrel to settle the WVO for about 7 days.   The WVO is poured through a kitchen sieve to catch large chunks of food items.  As fas as dumping the settled WVO and junk in the cone section, I have a 2" gate valve installed on the bottom to control the drain off of about 5 gals.  The gate valve is opened slowly to start the flow.  When the 5 gal pail fill up, I shut the valve.  The junk has never plugged from stopping the dumping.  The junk is dumped into a renderers'  bin.  The reason for draining just 5 gals is to not let any of the settled oil get drained out.

I have a cone bottom tank and I just placed a window screen on the top to stop the large chunks of food from causing problems. Easy cheap fix.

What everyone has stated about the cone bottom tanks is right on. It's great I have the same type 110 gallons with the 2 inch port at the bottom. It never gets plugged up, and its perfect to settle oil with. But it's a little $$$$, but it's more vertical storage that doesn't take up alot of space.
Warning, Don't put any heat on that plastic because it will melt and cause a fire.
Good luck & be safe.
