Ideal process instrumentation for biodiesel production

Pressure, temperature, flow, level and point levels must be monitored at various positions in a biodiesel plant, whether for dosing, for transesterification, or for processing of glycerin. Correct selection of the instrumentation is the basis for trouble-free production and continuous optimization during the production of biodiesel. Integrated into the process automation over PROFIBUS or HART communication, the measured data provide important information for online monitoring, diagnostics (asset management) and predictive maintenance.

Comprehensive range of process instruments

Your biodiesel plant can also be operated safely in explosion protected areas using the family of SITRANS measuring instruments, the Pointek sensors, and the SIPART PS2 positioner. Profit from our versatility: Particularly in muddy liquids, the SITRANS LR 250 can be used to measure the level per radar, or the POINTEK CLS to measure the maximum filling level in the storage containers. The high-precision SITRANS FC Coriolis flowmeter determines volume, mass, density and temperature. The SITRANS P DS III pressure transmitter is the ideal instrument for measuring pressures in hazardous areas.

Our wide range of process instruments will support you in the economic production of biodiesel. However, we don’t just provide reliable measuring results. Continuous innovation also contributes to making long-term improvements in quality and performance in biodiesel production.
