This small scale biodiesel production equipment laboratory unit was designed for laboratory researches and creation of new biodiesel recipee. USB unit is intended for production of methyl ether from vegetable oils by means of transesterification.
The biodiesel production equipment is designed for transesterification of vegetable oil, animal fat etc by highly precise and finely dispersed cavitation mixing with catalyst and further dry polishing of biodiesel. The product complies with EN 14214 and ASTM standards.
The unique technology allows to product FAME (biodiesel) without lengthy additional readjustment from any type of vegetable oil or animal fat.
All operating components of the plant are ex-proof and made from stainless steel.

Mode of operations
Operation mode consists in preparation of the components and creation of required conditions for transesterification reaction. The tankages are filled with methanol and catalytic agent. After that the required parameters of oil temperature and heating of oil pump are set; oil heating and oil pump are turning on.
