Flow meters for Biofuel Manufacturers and Blenders

Product Announcement from Flow Technology, Inc.

Flow meters for Biofuel Manufacturers and Blenders-Image

Flow Technology can help customers to optimize biodiesel processes through the use of precision electromagnetic and turbine flow meters, as well as advanced batch controllers. This equipment is designed for the highest accuracy, even in demanding application environments, and provides a low cost-of-ownership and reliable performance, year after year.

Sulphuric Acid: Flow Technology's EL500 and EL2200 Series Electromagnetic flow meters are ideal for measuring the flow of Sulphuric Acid. Teflon liners and Hastelloy C22 electrodes are resistant to this acid, and accuracy to within 0.2% of reading and excellent turndown range assures users of excellent performance. Line size requirements are typically ¾" to 1-1/2".

Caustic (typically 30% Sodium Methatate in Methanol): Here again, the EL500 and EL2200 Series electromagnetic flow meters are an excellent choice. Typical line sizes in this application are up to 2".

Refined Biodiesel: The best flow solution for biodiesel is a combination of a turbine flow meter and Flow Technology's LinearLink linearizing electronics with the option of a controller and display for batching and/or totalization.

Biodiesel Dispensing (from trucks or tanks): In this case, temperature-compensating electronics are used along with a turbine meter to account for viscosity changes due to temperature. Line sizes up to 4" can be accommodated. Calibrations in Flow Technology's NIST traceable and NVLAP-accredited calibration lab ensure a highly accurate solution.
