Biodiesel is a new and clean energy , it’s a reborn fuel and excellent substitute for petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is made by transesterification process which raw material bases on plant oil crops ,wild plants and engineering micoralgae type aquatic plants fats as well as animal fatx, food waste oil, etc. Our centriufuge is successfully used in biodiesel separation of methyl, ester glycerin, catalyst, de-soap, methanol, methly washing , extraction of fatty acids, glycerol desalination.
The WVO (Waste Vegetable Oil) feedstock contains water and food particles that need separation prior to the biodiesel conversion process. The three-phase disc stack centrifuge separates all free-water and sediment down to 1-micron level from WVO. This separation is a continuous (flow-through) process.
Biodiesel Glycerol Separation
Post reaction is essential to separate the two immiscible liquid phases (biodiesel and glycerol) to get pure biodiesel. It is critical to remove all traces of glycerol and any sediment to reduce the load on the next process step.
Industrial centrifuges are a proven way to separate the two liquids at this stage. Alfa Laval industrial centrifuges (disc-stack type) generate a high centrifugal force on the fluid. This force separates the glycerol from the biodiesel to produce ASTM-grade biodiesel. Especially in cases where virgin vegetable oils are the feedstock.
Biodiesel Wash Water Separation
Biodiesel produced using WVO or animal fat needs a further step to remove any remaining impurities. A simple water wash polishes the biodiesel to the ASTM purity level.
An industrial centrifuge is the best fit for the separation of wash water from biodiesel. High centrifugal force in the disc stack centrifuge separates the water from biodiesel. This separation is, again, a continuous, efficient process.
Biodiesel Final Polishing
Polishing the biodiesel removes tiny particulate matter from the finished biodiesel. In the case of water wash, trace amounts of water may still be present in the biodiesel.
Distilling separated glycerol recovers the methanol and produces glycerin. Pure glycerin has good resale value and is in demand in the food and cosmetics industries.
Clarification of glycerin to remove small impurities makes it usable. A disc stack centrifuge has the required g-force to remove the finest trace particles from glycerin.
The advantages of using industrial centrifuges (listed above) are applicable for glycerin purification as well.
