ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
Crude oil is a highly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Through desalting, distillation, and conversion, it is transformed into fractions of higher-quality hydrocarbons such as paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes, and olefins. Different ratios of these so-called PIANO compounds are blended to yield different fuel and lubricant types. Increasingly, fossil fuels are blended with biofuels. Both blending and refining processes are demanding and require precise and reliable analysis. Regardless whether you deal with...
AppliTek has already developed the necessary tools to measure and control on-line the production, in case the futur is in favour of biofuels. For biodiesel, the following quality indices should be monitored, on order to comply with international legislation on biofuel QC:
Free fatty acids - Calcium & Magnesium - Total Phosphorus - Potassium - Moisture (water content)
While ordinary commercial styrene-based sulfonic acid resins may often be used for chemical reactions catalyzed by the H+ or M+ ions, faster process times, better yields, and higher product purity may be obtained by using a properly designed and purified catalyst. Purolite catalyst resins are supplied either completely water-swollen, or dried to specification.
The use of ethanol as a gasoline additive has increased dramatically over the past few years and will likely continue to increase. For fuel blenders, this means an added challenge to avoid an incorrect blend that could lead to regulatory fines, loss of customer confidence and damage to equipment. A quick on-site analysis with a portable mid-infrared based analyzer, such as the InfraCal 2 Ethanol Blend Analyzer shown in the photo, can help fuel blenders quickly flag out-of-spec product and ensure the...
As more mandates for a minimum of ethanol in gasoline and biodiesel in diesel come into effect, major oil companies are blending higher percentages of biofuels at their terminals. A quick analytical measurement method to assess the blend ratio can be a valuable asset for fuel distributors, engine manufacturers, fleet operators, and regulatory agencies. The InfraCal Biodiesel and Ethanol Blend Analyzers offer a quick way to verify that fuel blends are on spec. They are ideal for use for non-technical personnel and...
Industrial processes based on fermentation are a major, mixer intensive segment of the Chemical Process Industries, and many products are produced via fermentation. Fermentation uses micro-organisms to convert carbon or nitrogen based raw materials into new products.
Use the SUMA agitators to prevent the formation of floating and sinking substrate layers. Furthermore they ensure that the substrate maintains an equal temperature throughout. The homogeneously distribution of nutrients for the biological process enables more efficient gas flow out of the substrate.
Small rural communities or work camps are ideal applications for the Borealis wood power plant. Its application fit is best when the heat can be used to support a micro-heating-network for 25 homes or fewer in conjunction with a community centre as base load. Power needs must exceed the 45 kWh or it can be sold to the grid.
Pulsair Systems manufactures the most efficient and effective storage tank mixing process for blending and agitating biodiesel fuel. The efficient Pulsair mixing process is well suited for the high viscosity and heavy fluid characteristic of biodiesel. Pulsair offers a complete line of off the shelf biodiesel fuel mixers and agitators for mixing in a 55-gallon drum or larger 250 - 1 million+ gallon tanks for biodiesel fuel storage or production. Pulsair biodiesel fuel mixers are explosion proof and safe for...
Biomass produces a cleaner, renewable energy, reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions, all while creating lower operating costs for power plants.
Biomass, the by-product of pulp and paper, agriculture, and municipal sludge, is perhaps the oldest source of renewable energy on Earth. Biomass' use in energy production is currently growing worldwide at an exponential rate.
