We have an awesome customer in Japan that purchased one of our Raw Power Centrifuges as an experiment to remove magnesol from their Biodiesel. The results have been incredible!
In the past they’ve run the Biodiesel through a 1 Micron Bag Filter to remove the magnesol. This was usually a real pain because it always plugged up so fast that they went through filters fairly quickly. Even after the Biodiesel has been settling for 12 hours, it still would plug up their 1 micron bag filters.
They had heard how well centrifuges work at removing particulates and thought they’d experiment with one to see if it could remove the magnesol from biodiesel.
Normally they settle the biodiesel for 12 hours before filtering, but they only let it sit for 1.5 hours and then ran it right through the centrifuge. The Biodiesel was at about 30-35 deg. C (85-95 deg F) at the time it went into the centrifuge. They ran it through at about 10 gallons per hour and then checked the centrifuge and the biodiesel.
Here’s what they said about how well it worked.
“Nothing comes out of the waste hose from the centrifuge as there is only biodiesel and magnesol going in. All the magnesol is packed very tightly against the bowls wall.”
The Biodiesel flowed right through the bag filter without plugging at all and the finished, filtered Biodiesel was sparkling clear and looked incredibly clean!
Here’s what they said about how clean it turned out:
“Not sure how good you can see but the bio coming out is crystal clear and there is NOTHING in the filter. It just flow right through.”
They’re thrilled with the results!
With the great results they had this to say about how well it would work on a larger scale:
“Using 0.5% to 1% magnesol and settling maybe half a day before centrifuging, I am sure you could process a couple hundreds of gallons before having to clean up the bowl.”
We think it’s awesome!
So, if you’ve ever wanted to experiment with magnesol but didn’t want to deal with the filtering, we may just have a solution for doing so with our awesome line of Raw Power Centrifuges!
