Olympia Green Fuels innovative, patented design has stood up to in-depth testing prior to manufacturing and gaining the name ‘Pelly Model A5′ Biodiesel Processor. This is our introductory commercial sized model.
The base ‘Pelly Model A5′ Biodiesel Processor is built to process 100,000 to 500,000 gallons of vegetable oil annually depending on configuration and options. Our processors are sold and delivered with a complete and expandable tank farm configuration. As outfitted our Model A5 will take raw triglyceride grease and turn it into finished and polished biodiesel fuel ready to run in any diesel ‘compression ignition’ engine. The expected final percent yields of fuel and overall production times vary depending on a number of factors including, condition of feedstock vegetable oil, algae oil, or fish/animal fat feedstock, and size capacity of the processors tank farm along with other variables that include the chosen method for cleaning and polishing the completed fuel. Fresh oils produce the highest percentage yields in the shortest time duration and require the lease amount of washing and polishing retention time. Low free fatty acid (FFA) waste restaurant fryer oils work very well in our system but final yields vary depending on the concentration of impurities in the yellow grease feedstock and resultant levels of suspended FFAs. To achieve the highest percentage yields of biodiesel and quickest overall production and polishing times, We recommend oil feedstock with less than 5% FFA concentration.
The ‘Pelly Model A5′ Biodiesel Processor is similar in size to a standard kitchen ‘refrigerator’ and comes coupled to a tank farm, included in package. Our Model A5 processors are built skid mounted for easy shipping and installation. We incorporate in the A5′s design our innovative and Patent Protected hermetically sealed, ‘Cavitation Transesterification’ mixing method. Depending on options and preselected capacities, the A5 can be ordered coupled to an optional preheating and de-watering tank system run in series with our processor and reaction vessel. The A5 is built safer because of various designed in safety, convenience and service features, including optional alcohol recovery. In producing our fuel, the cavitation induced transesterified biodiesel fuel is separated from its glycerin byproduct then washed, polished and filtered prior to completion. These biodiesel processors are easy, safe and predictable to operate, and inexpensive to clean and service.
Our standard water wash systems enable the operator to run a hands-free programmable microprocessor controlled, fuel washing and polishing system that incorporates fine-water misting, air bubbling, drying and filtration to assure a consistent and reliable source of biodiesel fuel. We also offer at additional cost, our ‘waterless’ polishing system with two packed columns containing ion exchange resins or other cleaning mediums to quickly speed up the polishing operation and avoid the operators need for a water discharge permit. This type of polishing is a virtually foolproof method for rapidly cleaning the fuel sufficiently enough to pass ASTM 6751 purity standards. These impurity absorbing compounds are safe enough to be land-filled once spent.
Our base catalyst mixer is enclosed, sealed, and easy to operate when mixing the Potassium Hydroxide base catalyst with methyl alcohol into a Potassium Methoxide catalyst solution. Alcohol can be pumped from a drum/tote or to processor via an optional inert nitrogen gas under low pressure system or directly from the processors stock catalyst mixing pump. Either method has built-in safety features designed to both improve safety and increase operator convenience.
The ‘Pelly Model A’ Biodiesel processor is designed to work on either freshly grown, expelled and de-gummed oils, or oil produced from algae, or used restaurant fryer (yellow) grease or animal and fish oils with low free fatty acid FFA content (<5%). Time needed to perform transesterification has been clocked at over 300 gallons per hour. The time required to water wash and polish fuel is from 24-72 hours or greater depending on condition of oil feedstock and what options the biodiesel processor is outfitted with. Included with every 500 gallon per day processor are setup and operation instructions along with a quick on-the-fly operator tutorial for a quick reference answer to any questions the operator requires a fast answer to. The system safety features include a comprehensive operator personal safety equipment kit to ensure operators safety. To assure a productive operation also included are instructions on how to set up, operate and maintain a low cost grease collection route scaled to your biodiesel processors feedstock demands.
Your purchase is backed by ongoing technical support and a 12 month limited warranty. Our consulting services are offered on all systems and come at no extra charge on our larger systems along with initial system setup and operator training and consulting.
