Product overview

Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) / Used cooking oil (UCO) cleanup
Pre-filtration of Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) and Rape Seed Oil (RSO) is the first step to achieving
excellent quality biodiesel. Good filtration at this point will allow the production process to flow
smoothly. Filtertechnik offer tailor-made solutions to ensure your biodiesel production gets off to
a good start.




Dry Wash purification systems
Our dry wash units are designed to eliminate the production bottle-necks so common with water
wash systems. High volume washing can now be done effectively in hours thereby significantly
speeding up the washing process. Dry washing is proven to be quicker, easier and cheaper than
other wash methods.



Final polish and water removal systems
The importance of final polishing and moisture removal cannot be understated. Our systems
are proven to remove harmful contaminants and water effectively. A particle counter fitted to the
polishing rigs gives added security that the biodiesel you produce is clean and free of harmful
particulates.



Quality control instrumentation
Our extensive range of control instrumentation will put you in complete charge of your production.
Flow meters are available to suit most applications. Particle counters will verify biodiesel cleanliness
and give you peace of mind that your fuel is clean and dry. Each production batch can then be
recorded and archived.



Why use Filtertechnik?
Our biodiesel systems are specially designed for the biodiesel market. WVO, wet and dry wash and final polish products are rated for continual use using dirt tolerant
pumps, quality fittings and rugged designs. All our systems with pumps feature both pressure and thermal cut-outs. At Filtertechnik we offer excellent backup and

Vegetable oil filtration (WVO/RSO)
Pre-treatment of WVO prior to the transesterification process is important. Free Fatty Acids (FFA), oil contaminants and moisture need to be effectively removed in order
to ensure a clean, irreversible reaction.

The need for effective filtration & pre treatment
Most biodiesel is made from waste vegetable oil (WVO) collected from catering and food production facilities, or from virgin feedstocks.
The WVO often contains high levels of Free Fatty Acids, moisture as well as solids, other impurities and contaminants. The solids can be filtered out using correct
filtration procedures. The water must be removed by heating the oil to above 212°F (100°C) for an extended period to drive the water from the oil.

WVO typically contains from 2-5% free fatty acids. If the free fatty acids are above this amount, it is very difficult to produce biodiesel without an acid esterification
process. The free fatty acid number is determined by a titration process. A full description of this process is available on request.

A common problem with biodiesel producers is instead of a clear separation between the biodiesel and the glycerine after the reaction and settling process, they end
up with a semi-solid, gelatinous mixture that cannot be purified and used as fuel. This is an indication that the oil contained excessive free fatty acids and/or water.
Raw vegetable oils that are produced by pressing oilseeds such as rape (canola), mustard or soybeans can be converted to biodiesel. The free fatty acid level of these
raw oils is usually 0.5% or less, which is low enough not to pose a problem. However, the oil may contain gum compounds that can create sludge deposits in the
processing equipment and can make it difficult to separate the glycerine at the end of the reaction.


Free Fatty Acid Monitoring strips
Ensuring adequate quality base feed stock is the key to successful biodiesel production.

By collecting or taking delivery of poor quality oil, there will be an element of shrinkage once the Free Fatty Acids (FFA) have been removed. Most biodiesel producers
purchase WVO by weight, so if there is a high FFA level it is not in your best interests to take delivery.

Any biodiesel above 5% FFA content may be difficult to process into biodiesel. These test strips will allow you gauge the FFA level of incoming feedstocks. Simply dip the
test strip into your oil and submerge for 2 seconds. Remove the strip and count the number of bands without any blue colour. A band with blue patches is considered
a blue band.

EN14214 and ASTM specifications

Understanding EN14214 and ASTM specifications
In recent times, the European Biodiesel standard EN14214 has been used to show the capabilities of biodiesel production equipment which is impossible to achieve
with just a biodiesel processor alone. So as to pass the 27 sub-tests, which make up EN14214, it is important to see biodiesel as having three main phases of
production: • Pre-filtration • Reaction •­Purification

Density
Biodiesel has higher density than mineral diesel. The denser biodiesel will characteristically sink to the bottom of the tank and this can lower fuel consumption, which
is determined volumetrically; so the denser the fuel, the higher the consumption will be. Under laboratory conditions, density is tested to EN ISO 12185, which is one
of 27 separate tests which combine to meet EN14214. Density can be easily measured at the time of process, using a simple hydrometer method. Laboratory results
and the EN14214 standards report density at 15°C so it is important that the result is corrected for temperature.

Viscosity
Viscosity of biodiesel is higher than mineral diesel, which can lead to problems in fuel delivery systems. High viscosity can lead to poor combustion, which leads to
coking of injector tips and engine power loss. Viscosity decreases with unsaturation, but increases with the presence of mono, di or triglycerides. Lower viscosity can
also indicate the presence of methanol in the biodiesel, which can be confirmed by measuring flash point (the lower the flash point, the more methanol is present).
The removal of glycerides by effective purification means that purified biodiesel has increased flow capabilities which is beneficial during wintertime. Viscosity can be
checked on-site, using a “falling ball” viscometer. This test consists of a precision tube, filled with the sample biodiesel and then a ball is timed as it falls a set distance
through the fuel. The time taken is converted to viscosity. See quality control section.

Flash Point
Flash point is the lowest measure by which a liquid will ignite in air. The flash point with biodiesel should be low enough for it to be classified as “Non flammable” and
tested to ISO 2719. Effective purification is key to residual methanol removal to ensure safer working and storage conditions to biofuel producers and users alike.
Flash point can also be checked on site, using a portable flash point tester. A sample is heated to a given temperature, in a special enclosure. The lid is then opened
and a pilot light is used to ignite any flammable vapour present. The ’flash’ is automatically detected and provides a simple pass/fail to the EN14214 specification.

Sulphur Content
Sulphur emissions are harmful to human health and emissions make Sulphur Dioxide, which is indicative of acid rain. The sulphur content test BS EN ISO 20846 is
difficult to pass using over used waste oils and without this part of the specification – your product will not meet EN14214.

Carbon Residue
The Carbon Residue is the material left over after combusting fuel. Residual carbon is responsible for coking fuel injectors so it is important to eliminate this. Effective
purification removes residual soaps and metals which will lead to Carbon Residue.

Cetane Number
Cetane number is a measure of ignition quality. Fuels with low Cetane numbers show increased emissions due to incomplete combustion. Palm Oil and Tallow derived
biodiesels have higher Cetane numbers. If you are using a feedstock which is not likely to pass EN ISO 5165 a Cetane boosting additive can be used.

Sulphated Ash
Similar to Carbon residue sulphated ash content is tested by taking a sample of biodiesel and combusting it and then weighing the residual non-combustible mineral
ash under specifications to EN ISO 3987.

Water Content
EN ISO 12937 specifies a maximum of 500 ppm (parts per million) of water in biodiesel. As FAME is hygroscopic it can pick up water in storage and because of this
there can be problems meeting the specification. At around 1500 ppm, the solubility limit is reached and the water becomes visible. Producers still using traditional
“wet wash” systems may find this aspect of the EN Specification rather troublesome to achieve. Free water promotes biological growth and adverse reaction to
transesterification which undoes biodiesel back into free fatty acids, which is disastrous in a fuel delivery system.

EN14214 and ASTM specifications

Digi water tests are available, which use a sample of biodiesel and two chemical reagents. After shaking together in an electronic cell for two minutes, the result is
displayed in ppm water. See quality control section.

Total Contamination
Because production contaminants like residues and soaps may still be present in the purification stage of making biodiesel, effective purification and filtration is
required to achieving total contamination to EN12662. This ensures the total removal of production residues, which means clean fuel and peace of mind!

Copper Strip Corrosion
This is defined as the likelihood to cause corrosion to copper, zinc and bronze parts of an engine such as injector tips and common rail systems. Clean biodiesel gives
consistently good results in this area and is unlikely to fail EN ISO 2160 due to the low sulphur content.

Oxidation Stability
This property relates to the overall storage stability of the fuel; the higher the degree of unsaturation (double bonds) within the FAME molecules gives a decrease in
oxidative stability which means that the longer it is stored the greater the reduction in quality will be. Tests have shown that effective purification can extend the product
life of biodiesel via the removal of moisture, mono, di and triglycerides.

Acid Value
Acid value is a measure of mineral acids and free fatty acids contained in a fuel sample. The fewer residual compounds, the lower the acid value of the biodiesel. Effective
purification will ensure that EN14104 is consistently achievable as is EN14214. Acid number will also increase over time if the biodiesel is stored incorrectly.
Acid value can be determined rapidly using a TAN (Total Acid Number) drop test. A sample of biodiesel is added to a red coloured chemical reagent and then another
chemical is added until the colour changes to green. The number of drops taken is easily converted to the Acid Number of the fuel. See quality control section.

Iodine Value
Higher Iodine values will have better cold properties whereas lower Iodine values have poorer Oxidative stability therefore affecting storage stability over time. Iodine
value is determined by testing to EN14111.

Ester Content
To pass EN14103 there must be a minimum ester transformation of 96.5% FFA’s into Methyl Esters. This test is determined by good practice in upstream processes
and ensuring a good reaction driven by heat and effective agitation.

If there is not a sufficient reaction, then the levels of residuals of mono, di and triglycerides will be also out of specification, as they will remain untransformed and
this will lead to missing EN14103 and EN14105 specifications.

Methanol Content
A high Methanol content means a lower flashpoint and dangerous storage instabilities. Effective methanol removal and purification ensures conformity to EN14110
which will lead to passing EN14214.

Glycerides
It is vitally important that a good transesterification reaction is achieved, as by achieving a transformation of more than 96.5% limits the amount of residual mono, di
and triglycerides as per EN14105. Failing to meet the specification implies low conversion to ester and deposit formation on injectors and valves.

Group I Metals
Sodium and Potassium are limited to a combined 5ppm. Effective purification processes enables the effective removal of residual traces of Sodium and Potassium
which can lead to levels exceeding the 5mg/kg upper limit required by EN14109.

Group II Metals
Production deposits like Calcium and Magnesium sulphate produce soaps which are harmful to a fuel delivery system and will fail the test IP377.

Phosphorous Content
This is to test for left over phosphor used in feedstock production and refining. Removal of production residues and chemicals to pass EN14107 and also across the
specification of standards which combine to meet EN14214.

CFPP
Under BS EN 116, the test for Cold Filter Plugging Point requires biodiesel to pass through a filter until it can no longer do so. On average Rape Seed Oil has a CFPP
of -5°C to -14°C whereas Palm Oil has a CFPP of around 10°C. This test shows that there is some sense in having shorter production chains in biodiesel production
as local crops are more suitable to local weather conditions for more of the year.

Cloud point of biodiesel is also used as an indicator of cold temperature stability. The cloud point of the fuel is the temperature at which wax crystals first begin to
form. Below this temperature, filters will start to become blocked and potentially starve the engine of fuel. Cloud point may be determined at the time of production
using an electronic cloud point detector. A small sample (0.5ml) of biodiesel is added to the device and the test runs automatically and un-supervised. The cloud point
is reported on screen as a temperature.

The advantages of “Dry Washing” over “Wet Washing”


Time
A problem common to all producers of biodiesel is that the demand for the product is always greater than their ability to supply. With biodiesel now becoming
increasingly attractive to end users due to the environmental and cost saving advantages, producers are looking at streamlining production to cope with spiralling
demand. Biodiesel that is “dry washed” can be ready for use in a few hours and is significantly quicker to produce than “wet wash” fuel. As water is not used in a dry
wash, producers can at last keep up with demand and eliminate production bottle-necks so common with wet washing.

Cost
In addition to the ever-increasing cost of water and the significant expense of water-removal machinery, disposal of effluent water is often the largest single cost during
this stage of production. Environmental agencies are vigorously discouraging illegal disposal of effluent waste. Imminent closure and hefty fines have been known to
be imposed on those found in breach of the law.

Space
Settling is the key to effective water removal. Numerous large wet wash tanks and additional water settling tanks are usually required for this. These tanks can occupy
a large surface area. With Dry washing, space can be used more effectively and smaller, higher output production facilities are now a reality.

Fuel Quality
As water is not added in the dry wash, achieving <500ppm water content in accordance with the industry standard EN14214 is now possible. By “wet washing” water
is used to remove the impurities from the fuel. Once the impurities have been removed the water content is usually >1000ppm, making it expensive, difficult and time
consuming to remove effectively.

The future of drywash technology

HALF the price of Ion Exchange Resins and TWICE as fast!**

Eco2Pure™ is a unique cellulose based, natural and sustainable composition of adsorbent technologies, specifically formulated
for biodiesel purification from any feedstock. Eco2Pure™’s composition is designed to optimise purification efficiency and
contamination removal, combined with increased flow enhancement characteristics. Eco2Pure™ is designed to be a filter-free
wash process with no consumables in the wash stage. Each kilogram of Eco2Pure™ is capable of purifying between 350-700
litres of biodiesel*, making it the lowest cost drywash biodiesel purification method in existence today.

Eco2Pure™ removes soaps, catalyst traces, residual methanol, moisture and other production residues from biodiesel, thereby
assisting in the attainment of EN14214 & ASTM-D6751 quality standards.Eco2Pure™ outperforms existing Ion Exchange Resin
(IOX) technologies in terms of fuel quality, purification speed as well as price, boasting the lowest purification costs on the market
today. (0.002 pence per litre or (US$0.015 Cents per gallon)*.

Eco2Pure™ can be used to replace or compliment your existing purification system whilst allowing for a reduction in overall purification costs. The frequency of re-
bedding (replacing the spent media) will depend on the level of impurities in your biodiesel, the amount of biodiesel treated and the size of the Treatment Tower.
So a single 50kg Treatment Tower could only require re-bedding on average every 35000 litres. Loading is fast and simple and once Eco2Pure™ is loaded, no other
intervention is required. Once the Eco2Pure™ is bedded in the Treatment Tower, it automatically purifies the biodiesel in a single passage of flow. Eco2Pure™ is available
in 10 kg tubs for easy storage and transportation for the smaller producer and available in bulk quantity for larger producers. For price breaks and details of a stocking
distributor near you, please contact us for more details. A Filtertechnik representative will work with you to determine the optimum utilization for your plant and to
select the precise amount of Eco2Pure™ required, according to your process conditions.

*Eco2Pure™ life performance is determined by the initial starting quality of the crude bio-diesel, base feed stocks etc.
** Based on speed and price comparison of average resin prices on UK/USA mainland.

Eco2pureTM systems

How do Filtertechnik Eco2Pure™ Systems work:
Eco2Pure™ Systems operate on continuous flow basis. Once the long-life Eco2Pure™ media is spent, individual Treatment towers can be detached from the Eco Dock
system, to be emptied out and re-bedded. The standby tower is then moved into place and connected to the flow steam.

Eco2pureTM 50kg scaleable systems

Eco4Dock Wash & Polish systems:
Daily Production levels of 43,200-57,600 litres (24 hours)
The Treatment towers are wheeled into position alongside the manifold system and locked into position. Using quick release couplings, the towers are connected to the
continually rated system. Dirty biodiesel is then pumped into each treatment tower at a pre-set flow rate depending on the number of towers configured.

The biodiesel passes through the Eco2Pure™ purification media and through the final polishing system in a single passage of flow and emerges at the other end
purified, free of soaps, production residues and moisture. When the long Life Eco2Pure™ media is eventually exhausted, the towers can be rotated and replenished as
required. A single 50 kg treatment tower will require replenishing every 25000-35000 litres.


Eco8Dock Wash & Polish systems:
Daily Production levels of 86,400-115,340 litres (24 hours)
Our largest standard system. For larger volumes please contact our sales team for a tailor-made quotation.

Eco2Pure™ Monitoring using PC9000 particle
counter

Using the PC9000 on-line particle counter, biodiesel
producers can effectively monitor the residual life
of Eco2Pure™. The particle counts increase as
the media approaches exhaustion, allowing for
adequate notification for Eco2Pure™ rebedding. This
is an excellent way of ensuring that ONLY quality
fuel is produced and eliminates the possibility of
downstream migration of production residues,
moisture and soaps.
                                                                                                                                                  Eco2Pure™

We do all the work for you. Pumps, control panels, safety features are all configured to achieve maximum media life, production throughput and fuel quality.

How do you know when the Eco2Pure™ is exhausted?
There are several ways to monitor remaining life:
a) Pressure indication
b) Flow measurement
c) Particle counts
d) pH indication

How much biodiesel will each kilogram of Eco2Pure™ purify?
Each kilogram will purify between 350 and 750 litres of biodiesel

Can I increase my purification rate if I need to upscale?
By adding extra Eco2Pure™ Treatment Towers, you can increase your throughput. Treatment Towers are available in various sizes to suit all production volumes.

Do I require final polishing?
Irrespective of the wash method you employ, final polishing is advisable to remove all traces of production residues, soaps and moisture prior to use.

Can you still offer traceability with the Eco2Pure™ system?
Yes, a particle counter can be fitted to our systems to monitor fuel quality in real time.

How does the price of Eco2Pure™ compare to other wash methods?
Eco2Pure™ is one of the most competitively priced systems on the market today. No only in terms of start-up costs, but also in terms of the pence per litre/cents per
gallon cost.

pH testing                                                     Simple before wash: Unwashed biodiesel: pH at 8.5, settled water still highly contaminated.
Another benefit of the Eco2pureTM dry wash is that the
pH value reduces significantly during the wash and
polish stages. Unwashed biodiesel can have a pH count
of 8.5-10 due to the presence of caustic soda and
methanol still present at this stage. Running a vehicle                                             Biodiesel

result in serious damage to engine components.
After the dry wash process, using Filtertechnik’s
wash systems, and following final polishing using the                                               Water

Quality control

                           Patch test kits
                              The Filtertechnik portable patch test kit is an essential item to include in quality control for biodiesel production. Irrespective of the
                                purification method employed, these kits will alert you to possible shortcomings in your production and purification processes. Biodiesel
                                 production is a game of infinite variables. So too is biodiesel purification. A small upstream problem, if undetected, could have
                                  disastrous consequences downstream. By analysing fluid samples at various stages of the production and purification process,
                                  producers can now understand the constituent composition of all contaminants still present in the fuel.

                                   Once the contaminants have been identified, it is then that the source of the contaminant can be found and remedied. Contaminants
                                   could include soap, remaining production residues and possibly purification media (if incorrect filtration processes have been used).
                                  The kit enables instant visual analysis through an optical microscope of the major types of fuel contaminants.




How does it work?
A sample of the test fuel is passed through a filter
membrane via a vacuum pump, dried and mounted
into a membrane holder ready for visual assessment.
Comparison slides are available to readily identify fuel
cleanliness levels and to differentiate between the
different types of fuel contaminants.

Biodiesel test kits
Biodiesel Test kits bring essential quality checks to where they are most needed. Whether you are an end user or producer,
results are provided in minutes, allowing the correct decisions to be taken at the right time. As an end user, the quality and
batch to batch consistency of the biodiesel can be confirmed. Stored fuel can quickly and easily be checked for degradation,
contamination and suitability for use. As a producer, consistent production quality can be achieved. Process optimisation
and trouble-shooting can be quickly and effectively carried out on site in minutes. Base stocks can also be checked for
suitability at point of delivery.
Biodiesel producers                                                  End users

Water in biodiesel can lead to microbiological growth as well as the production of acids. In manufacture, water
in the base feedstock oil can reduce yields and increase process time. The EN14214 upper moisture limit is
500 ppm. If you are not achieving this standard on your final product you will need to address the following
issues:
a) Better pre-treatment of base feedstocks and increased settling times
                                                                                                                           simple
b) Increased filtration and polishing time                                                                                key pad
c) Ensure adequate methanol removal                                                                                                                             glass
d) Ensure adequate storage conditions for purification media and catalyst. These are hygroscopic, hence the                                                     reinforced

e) Analyse your process for moisture ingress and condensation traps
                                                                                                                   latest transducer
f) Check biodiesel storage conditions (if appropriate)

Biodiesel open days
We host regular open days at our Nottingham facility.
This is an excellent opportunity to understand the reasons for biodiesel purification and how this can be achieved at the lowest possible cost. Attendees find these
days to be beneficial not only for understanding biodiesel purification techniques, but also for discussing all aspects of biodiesel production amongst themselves in a
relaxed, informal environment.
We cater for all levels of producer and combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on practical demonstrations. Our aim is that you leave fully equipped with a better
understanding of biodiesel production and purification.


Biodiesel training courses
Whether you are a new or existing biodiesel producer, or just curious about biodiesel in general, these detailed training courses offer all the advice, guidance and
assistance required to master all aspects of biodiesel production and legislation.
Working with Industry leaders in biodiesel production, this course is the definitive A-Z of everything you need to know about Biodiesel. Far too many people enter into
biodiesel production, only to make serious mistakes and incorrect investment decisions that could have been avoided if the correct tuition had been available.
Anyone researching biodiesel on the Internet will agree that there is too much conflicting advice on offer, no transparency as to what you are buying and more importantly
too many big fat claims from suppliers that their product/service is the best available.
We talk you through all these issues....step by step! We may even tell you things you may not want to know, but we believe in a “warts and all” approach and will say
it as it is. Our intention is to allow you to go away and make an informed decision about the industry, equipped with all the necessary knowledge required to succeed.
Most attendees on our courses go on to be successful producers in their own right.
Working in conjunction with industry leaders, training is up to date and relevant to all levels of biodiesel from the budding enthusiast through to the advanced
producer.
