Circulation heaters are ideal for industries that are dealing with bio-fuels. They are efficient, safe, and require minimal labor for installation.
Biomass may be converted into liquid fuels called bio-fuels. This liquid is used for a lot of transportation needs such as fueling cars, trucks, buses, airplanes, and trains. There are two common types of bio-fuels, ethanol and bio-diesel.
Ethanol is an alcohol that can be found in beer and wine. Ethanol is commonly used as a fuel additive to help lower a vehicle’s carbon monoxide and smog-causing emissions. It is produced by fermenting any biomass high in carbohydrates through a process very close to brewing beer.
Bio-diesel can be used as a fuel additive or in its pure form as an alternative fuel for diesel engines. Bio-diesel is produced by combining alcohol and methanol with either vegetable oil, animal fat, or recycled cooking grease.
Circulation Heaters and Bio-Fuels
Circulation heaters are used in industries dealing with bio-fuels to heat the liquids. These heaters aid in pumping viscous liquids, pre-heat fuel oils, and are used as part of closed loop heat transfer systems.
Bio-fuel industries that may not have a lot of space for a large heater could benefit with a circulation heater. The compactness of the circulation heater allows room and safety for employees. Installation of the heater requires basic piping and wiring connection knowledge.
Benefits of Circulation Heaters for Bio-Fuels
Circulation heaters reap a few benefits for bio-fuel industries:
- Efficiency in heat transfer
- Heater has the ability to uphold against chemicals and corrosive materials
- Easy installation
- Small, compact that allows space saving
- Use of electric power offers safety versus other sources of heat
