There are several reasons that make biofuel so popular these days, the possibility of rising fuel prices and environmental concerns being two of them. Since production of biofuel is more difficult than producing petroleum or diesel, the process requires efficient tools, like the static mixer.
Komax static mixers, starch cookers, and heat exchangers are built for biofuel production. They help in the thorough and even mixing of fuel, vegetable oils, and the catalyst, and also supply the right temperature control.
A few of the advantages of Komax hi pass static mixers for biofuel production are:
What is biofuel?
Biofuel is a sustainable and environmentally friendly fuel made from canola or rapeseed oil. Since it isn’t toxic like regular fuel, biofuel’s much sought after around the world, especially in North and Central America.
The biofuel market is expected to grow at a 3.6 percent annual pace and reach 115 million metric tons by 2020.
To keep up with the rising 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.
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.
Komax is a trusted name in supplying static mixers and heat exchangers to the biofuel industry. With more than three hundred years of combined experience in fluid mixing, Komax technology has already been applied to thousands of installations until date.
A deep history
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.
