We’ve been making biodiesel for several years with our trusty BioPro 190 Automated Biodiesel Processor.
Below you can see how we’ve set up our operation.
The BioPro’s are really easy to install. Just unload them from the crate, hook up the water in and water out lines, plug it in, and it’s ready to go!
We plumbed our water in and water out system right to a sink that’s nearby. The pressurized water in system was pretty easy to set up. We connected the water pressure regulator to a quick release fitting that connects right to the sink.
With the water hooked up, we took the extra step of adding a fuel filter to the BioPro 190 pump. We installed one of our GPI Fuel Filters. It filters the fuel down to 10 microns and ensures that 100% of the biodiesel we make is filtered before it goes into our fuel tanks.
In Utah, we have pretty cold winters and the facility we make biodiesel in can get pretty cold. To help combat this, we insulated our BioPro 190 with some high-tech insulation called ArmaFoil. It’s typically used in home attics as a radiant barrier. A friend had seen it work extremely well in his attic so we figured we’d give it a try on the BioPro.
In testing, we found this insulation REALLY helped to keep the heat in the BioPro! It’s been amazing how well it works & we have loved the results! We’ve had it insulated now for several years and continue to love the results.
With everything set up, we went to work setting up the shop to make it easy to move the oil around. We setup two totes for incoming oil right behind the BioPro. As we bring oil in, it gets filtered and then put right into the totes for storage until we need it.
We’ve made literally thousands of gallons of biodiesel in our BioPro 190 and really have enjoyed using it! The units are really simple to use and the biodiesel they can produce is top notch!
