HERO BX Adopts Arisdyne’s Oleochemical Cavitation System to Reduce Biodiesel Catalyst Consumption and Lower Monoglycerid
Arisdyne Systems’ Retrofit Equipment Reduces HERO BX Catalyst Consumption by 25%
Erie, PA and Cleveland, OH (I-Newswire) April 27, 2012 - The Arisdyne Systems cavitation process has allowed biodiesel producer HERO BX to reduce catalyst consumption by over 25% and contributed to the reduction of monoglycerides, since its installation at their plant.
“HERO BX and Desmet Ballestra worked together with Arisdyne to test Arisdyne’s cavitation process. After two months of testing, we proved that the technology demonstrated significant cost savings, streamlined operations and improved overall output of biodiesel at our plant,” said John Schenker, plant manager of HERO BX.
Cavitation’s extremely high shear forces accelerate and optimize biodiesel reactions within current plant configurations. This contributes to increased reaction capacity with minimal electrical demand and without degrading downstream process capacities.
Arisdyne’s patented Controlled Flow Cavitation (CFC) process generates intense energy peaks in the form of extreme shear forces, resulting in nano-sized droplets. This enables optimum mass transfer for instantaneous transesterification, the chemical term for biodiesel production, which leads to greater catalyst savings.
Arisdyne’s system is easily installed without the need for production shut down, saving about three weeks of production output.
“In today’s weak economic conditions, margin improvement is everything,” said Dr. Peter Reimers, president and CEO of Arisdyne. “CFC can be applied to the entire value chain for Oleochemical processes starting with yield enhancement in the refining/degumming step and now as well in biodiesel catalyst savings. Biodiesel producers are faced with uncertain industry policy. Having catalyst savings and yield improvements in degumming, neutralization of crude oils is crucial to the oils and fat processing industries.”
