BIODIESELMACH® PRESENTS A PATENTED DOUBLE STAGE HYDRODYNAMIC MIXER
Biodieselmach® presents a patented double stage hydrodynamic mixerwhich allows the production of reliable and cost-efficient equipment for continuous stream biodiesel production, minimizing the technical complexity of biodiesel production projects.
The technology provides a unique wayof mixing the reaction components (vegetable oil and methyl alcohol) in a stream hydrodynamic process, which leads to intensification of the transesterification reaction, the primary process of biodiesel production. The results are two-fold: the reaction time is significantly reduced and the reaction is more complete than the conventional process.
The reaction is carried out on a molecular level.All reaction components are subjected to high pressure impulses in the complex controlled processor. When processing vegetable oils in the Biodieselmach ® reactor, the fatty acid molecules are broken with micro-bursts, which leads to a decrease in viscosity, as well as a significant reduction of reaction time (seconds instead of hours, as in conventional process), and an increase of cetane number, as well as general fuel performance.
We specialize in production of medium to large biodiesel plants.Our biodiesel production units are concise and are easy to fit into existing technological processes. Production of those units is ISO 9001:2000 certified.
BIODIESEL can be produced from various vegetable oils, such as sunflower, rapeseed etc. BIODIESEL qualities depend on the feedstock. Thus, palm oil BIODIESEL has the highest energy value, but also has the highest cloud point and filtering temperatures. Rapeseed BIODIESEL has a lower energy value, but also a much lower cloud point, thus being the best option for temperate climates, such as exist in Ukraine and Russia.
Both pure BIODIESEL (B100) and various blendsof BIODIESEL with petrol diesel, such as B5 to B20 (20% biodiesel and 80% petrol diesel, which is the most common type of biodiesel blend), can be used as motor fuel.
Biodiesel has outstanding lubrication characteristics.It removes petrochemical residue from engine parts, and increases the fuel’s cetane number, which is one of its advantages over traditional petrol diesel.
BIODIESEL is environmentally friendly.It is fully biodegradable. 99% of biodiesel is decomposed by microorganisms in soil or water within 28 days.
BIODIESEL burns with a minimum of harmful emissions, such as sulfur and lead. Carbon oxides emission is significantly lowered. Engine exhaust smells of vegetable oil. A high flash point (between 120 and 130 degrees Centigrade) makes this fuel much safer than petroleum fuels.
One ton of vegetable oil and 111 kilograms of alcohol(accompanied by 12 kilograms of catalyst), yields approximately 970 kilograms of biodiesel and 153 kilograms of glycerin (referred to as G-phase in Germany). Methoxides (methylates) of potassium or sodium are recommended as catalysts.
Only 11 kW of electric energy is needed for processing of one ton of oil, which is several fold lower than the amount of energy required by traditional technology.
In our process we use a minimal amount of alcohol, (in accordance with transesterification reaction recipe, one portion of alcohol to nine portions of oil by weight) and a minimum amount of catalyst. We do not wash and dry BIODIESEL. The reaction is completed in one pass, as opposed to at least two passes for quality BIODIESEL in conventional processes.
The quality of BIODIESEL, produced with BioDieselMach® equipment are in accordance with primary international standards of BIODIESEL production.
