Grundfos and the biofuel industry - Fuel your business with superior pumps
Grundfos supplies a broad range of pump systems and solutions to maintain essential processes for biofuel production. Customisation and engineering are our strengths, including different material variants as required for the specific application. Grundfos ensures system integration for the pump, variable frequency drives and controls, and increasingly, pump control and monitoring is integrated into factory processes. Grundfos iSOLUTIONS builds intelligence into pump monitoring and control which can then be fully integrated into existing factory systems using open communication protocols.
Grundfos pumps cover biodiesel and ethanol requirements in biofuel production with ATEX-approved pumps, at the same time increasing safety and optimising performance. Grundfos pumps handle core processes such as transesterification, separation and methanol recovery in biodiesel production and handle the mash pumping, fermentation, distillation and evaporation processes in ethanol production. Sophisticated digital dosing pumps are also available for precision dosing applications where required.
The complex liquid composition – for example with varying viscosity, chemicals and temperature – in the biofuel industry put pumps at risk. A range of material variants and pumps for specialised applications protects against corrosion and cavitation in the pump. The Grundfos Product Center helps you ensure that the pump selected matches the liquid to be pumped.
