Springboard Biodiesel is proud to introduce the INCOSEP biodiesel processing accelerator.
Using patent-pending fluid separation technology, Springboard Biodiesel is now able to provide current and future BioPro users the ability to halve the processing time and double the capacity of every BioPro 190 or BioPro 380 sold after January 1, 2007.
By incorporating its proprietary and patent-pending fluid separation process into its product line, Springboard Biodiesel will now offer two new products that will enable the rapid separation of biodiesel from other fluids and thereby simplify and accelerate the overall biodiesel processing experience:
The INCOSEP which enables rapid settling of bulk glycerin from raw biodiesel.
The INCOSEP-Pro which both rapidly settles bulk glycerin and rapidly separates wash water from biodiesel while preventing emulsions.
Both INCOSEP devices significantly reduce processing time for biodiesel production in BioPro processors. Standard BioPro processors are rated to repeatably produce ASTM-fuel every 48 hours. Half of this time (24 hours) is dedicated to esterification and transesterification reactions, as well as glycerin settling. The other half of this time is dedicated to washing (1 spray wash and 2 turbulent washes) as well as evaporative drying.
The INCOSEP-Pro also accelerates the esterification, transesterification and glycerin settling process to 8 hours. However, it also reduces the washing and drying processes to 12 hours, rather than 24. Additionally, because of the INCOSEP-PRO’s effectiveness in preventing emulsions, all three washes are now turbulent washes, in which the fuel is stirred into a homogenous mixture with the wash water before the water is quickly settled out and removed, thus exceeding the thoroughness of the already stringent water wash.
Springboard Biodiesel, LLC, based in Chico, California, is an established provider of renewable energy products that is committed to supporting the broad use of affordable, renewable biodiesel solutions that are economically and environmentally attractive. The Company’s family of industrial-grade BioPro processors and SpringPro wash systems enable the fully automated production of ASTM D6751 quality biodiesel fuel from a variety of sustainable sources. Because the majority of the Company’s customers are using non-food sources and existing waste streams as feedstock, Springboard’s BioPro processors and dry wash equipment are at the forefront of renewable and sustainable energy alternatives today, and are providing our customers with real economic and environmental benefits today.
