Biofuels are the answer to today’s energy concerns. While Europe is currently the leader in biodiesel production and consumption, the U.S. leads the way in bioethanol. In bioethanol distillation, water in the ethanol must be removed. Pumping systems used in ethanol distillation have special requirements, such as high flow and high fiber capability, precise temperature control and reliability. All ethanol distillation equipment must...

With today’s concerns about oil prices and future energy supplies, and increased interest in renewable energy technologies, biofuel production is a hot topic. Research is underway for new biomass materials and installations, and increased worldwide consumption is predicted for the future. In this article, we’ll look at the growth of biofuel, bioethanol production and the process of biodiesel production. We’ll also discuss the need for heavy duty, high performance pumping equipment that can handle the variety of...

A chemical feed pump, also known as a chemical dosing pump, is a compact positive displacement pump that injects a precise amount of chemical or other substance into water, gas or steam. It is typically part of a chemical feeder system that comprises a pump or multiple pumps, storage tank, pipes and control panel. There are different methods and types of pumps that can be used, but the general procedure is to draw a preset amount of the chemical into a holding container and then inject it into a pipe or tank that holds the water or other material to be dosed.

A dosing pump injects precise amounts of chemicals into a tank or pipe. Sometimes called metering pumps, they are small in size with comparatively high discharge pressures and lower flow ranges. They are positive displacement pumps that operate by pulling a measured amounts of high concentration chemical out of 55 gallon drum or carboy and then dosing the reagent into a tank or pipe. A chemical metering or dosing system is made up of reagent holding tank, dosing pump, injector, foot valve, dosing line and controls.
