The biofuels industry can be a hair-raising or exhilarating ride, depending on your perspective. With oil production on a wild ride in the past six months, biofuels in general are vulnerable to profit issues. Thus, it is important to maximize any opportunity for efficiency in the process of extracting or refining biofuels, as some months that may provide the best profit scenario available!
Mixing action that helps reduce sludge buildup is critical in this industry. Having a digester heating solution, like a Komax Scepter Tank Heater allows for direct steam injection into tanks but without the usual vibration and noise. Our heaters help create stirring action to produce a uniform product via uniform temperature and enhanced suspension processes. Additionally, our static mixers can be lined with Teflon and Kynar. Why is this important? Any time your process involves chemicals, you want to ensure you can control any chemical reactions that might result. These materials are corrosion resistant, ideal for dealing with aggressive chemicals. The carbon steel housings also ensure safety and quality.
Ultimately, the biofuels industry faces some common problems. Working with highly dangerous materials, managing the possibility of an environmental disaster as well as trying to create a process that results in a consistent product when sampled. These are tough standards by any measurement! Fortunately, quality equipment can help with all these issues.
The biofuels industry, despite its volatile nature, is still one of the fastest growing markets with no signs of slowing down. How can Komax help enhance your existing processes or create new solutions to the problems your company faces?
