Precise Batch Dosing Flow Meters Assist Biodiesel Plant to Convert Bio Waste into Sustainable Biofuels
Titan’s Oval Gear flow meters have played a vital role in converting bio waste into sustainable biofuels for Green Fuels’ biodiesel plants. The chemically resistant flow meters when combined with the Namur switch were suitable for precise batch dosing at the firm’s plants and can also be used across a wide range of applications. The switch ensures that the flow meters deliver highly accurate flow measurement in explosive atmospheres.
With decarbonization, circular economy and sustainability hitting the top of the agenda around the world, Green Fuels advances biofuel technologies and joint ventures to achieve its contribution to the global net zero target.
For over 13 years, Titan’s Oval Gear (OG) flow meters have been an intrinsic component within Green Fuels’ biodiesel plants converting bio waste into sustainable biofuels. Green Fuels’ award-winning research and pioneering process plants have powered buildings with sustainable fuel from used cooking oil, and most recently developed a process to convert fish oil and sewage sludge to biofuel.
Accuracy of measurement in the company’s chemical processes is critical and Titan’s range of oval gear flowmeters provide just that. Simple, accurate and chemically resistant, Titan’s flow meters, with the addition of the Namur switch, were the ideal solution for precise batch dosing within a potentially hazardous environment, states the company.
Titan’s OG Series flow meters are designed to give reliable, high performance across a wide range of applications. Almost immune from the effects of varying liquid viscosity, density and temperature, the measurement performance of oval gear flowmeters improves as liquid viscosity increases, adds the firm.
Titan offers intrinsically safe options for its Oval Gear measurement devices to ensure safe operation in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as those encountered in the chemical, biofuel and petrochemical industry. As well as being constructed from durable materials including Stainless Steel, Hastelloy and PEEK, a fully certified Namur Proximity Switch can be installed into the Oval Gear flow meters. The Namur Proximity Switch is an intrinsically safe sensor specially designed for use in hazardous locations, enabling the flow meters to deliver highly accurate flow measurement in explosive atmospheres.
