Rising fuel prices and environmental concerns have made biofuel increasingly popular. As the demand rises, there is an increased need for equipment that can help in the production of high-quality biofuel.
Producing biofuel is more difficult than producing petroleum or diesel. The process is more complex and a greater amount of precision is required.
Komax static mixers and heat exchangers have been tailored for biofuel production. Not only do they help in the consistent mixing of fuel, vegetable oils, and catalyst, but also provide optimal temperature control.
A Plethora of Knowledge
Since 1973, Komax has been manufacturing and supplying high quality static mixers, desuperheaters, and inline mixers to several industries, including biofuel. When it comes to static mixers, Komax is the world leader, with more expertise and technical knowledge than any other company.
Besides over 40 years of experience, Komax also has forty heat exchange and transfer patents to its credit. All of these cement the credibility of Komax in the world of static mixers.
Some of the benefits of Komax static mixers in the biofuel industry are:
Static mixers are motionless, which means they don’t have electrical or moving parts. This leads many to wonder if static mixers are really useful in the biofuel industry where large volumes need to be produced in a given time.
Several studies and research have found that static mixers are effective biofuel production. In fact, with the right time, temperature, and mixing rate, the reactor could consist only of static mixers and pumps for biofuel production.
The demand for biofuel has been on the rise, because it isn’t as toxic as regular fuel. Usually made from canola or rapeseed oil, biofuel is in high demand in North and Central America, with the market expected to grow at a 3.6 percent annual pace and reach 115 million metric tons by 2020.
To cope with the demand, there is need for high quality equipment to carry out more production in a shorter time. Without the right mixers, pumps, and reactors, producing quality biofuel is impossible within a short time.
Komax is a trusted name in supplying static mixers and heat exchangers to the biofuel industry. With more than three hundred years of experience in fluid mixing, Komax technology has already been applied to thousands of installations until date.
