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 A5s will chemicaly convert raw triglycerides (grease) into finished and polished biodiesel fuel, ready to run in any diesel ‘compression ignition’ engine. Expected final percent yields of fuel and overall production times vary depending on factors including, condition of feedstock vegetable oil, algae oil, or fish/animal fat feedstock, and size capacity of the processors tank farm along with others including chosen method for cleaning and polishing fuel produced. Fresh oils produce the highest percentage yields in the shortest time duration and require lease amount of wash and polish retention time. Low free fatty acid (FFA) waste restaurant fryer oils work very well in our systems but final yields may vary depending on concentration of impurities in yellow grease feedstock and resultant levels of suspended FFAs. To achieve the highest percentage yields of biodiesel and quickest overall production and polishing times, oil feedstocks with less than 5% FFA concentration are recommended.
The ‘Pelly Model A5′ Biodiesel Processor arrives coupled with a tank farm, included in package. Model A5 processors are skid mounted for easy shipping and installation or can be sold as complete unit in a shipping container. Incorporate in the A5’s design is our innovative and Patent Protected hermetically sealed, Cavitation induced transesterification mixing technology. Depending on options and preselected capacities, A5s can be ordered coupled to optional preheating and de-watering tank(s) that are run in series with processor and reaction vessel. The A5 is designed from the start and built safer because of various safety, convenience and service features, including optional alcohol recovery. In production of biodiesel the cavitation induced transesterified biodiesel fuel is separated from its glycerin byproduct, followed by washing, polishing and finally filtered to completion. We are proud with the ease of operation of our biodiesel processors, their inherient safety features and predictability in operation. Because of many innovative features that eliminate the need and maintenance of costly centrifuges and high operating temperatures A5s are inexpensive to buy, operate, clean and service.
Our automatic PLC controlled water based wash systems enable operators to run the A5s hands-free programmable fuel washing and polishing system to assure a consistent and reliable source of high grade biodiesel fuel. We also offer an optional ‘waterless’ polishing system with packed columns containing ion exchange resins or other cleaning mediums. The advantage of this system is a quicker polishing operation and avoiding the need for any water discharge permits where they apply. 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, depending on condition of oil feedstock and options. 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 to any questions operator might require. The system safety features include a comprehensive operator personal safety equipment kit to ensure operators safety in working with methoxide. 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 along with initial system setup and operator training and consulting.
