AER Mk-2 description

 

 

The Mk-2 reactor is not a piece of prototype equipment that works in the lab and “may” be ready for scale up in a few years; it’s the culmination of many previous prototypes and over 8 years of rigorous testing. It has been producing high quality ASTM and EU spec. fuel in a production plant for over six years. A firm set of criteria was scrupulously followed to ensure the best reactor to produce the best fuel at the best price. Some of the design features are as follows:

 

 

 

·      Small physical footprint that requires only 48 sq. ft. of floor space and replaces rooms of the usual complicated and expensive biodiesel processing equipment

 

·      Can remain on moveable frame or be fixed in place  

 

·      Fully automated via a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)

 

·      Can operate as a batch unit, a continuous flow unit, or both

 

·      Produces its own process heat; no need for expensive external pre-heat and continuous heat systems

 

·      Reduces, in some cases by as much a 40%, the normal amount of reactants needed to produce biodiesel. After feedstock, reactants are the second most expensive component in producing biodiesel

 

·      True “plug and play”; simply connect power, feedstock and reactant lines, press the preset for the type of feedstock used, and you’re ready to produce world-class fuel

 

·      Reduces residence time in the reactor to seconds instead of hours

 

·      Eliminates the need for dangerous high temperature and high pressure vessels

 

·      Multi-feedstock capable, has the capacity to use cheaper, higher FFA feedstock

 

·      Completely scalable up or down to accommodate any size plant
