FILTRATION OF OILS MADE FROM ANIMAL GREASES
In co-generating plants, engines feedings are every day more different, like oils coming from animal greases. This oils haven’t sure and determined quality standards: their chemical and particle contamination levels, may change from a supply to another, creating big problems to the engines. A customer call us because the engine applied on his co-generating plant, tended to block often due to injectors sizing or wearing.
verify the fluid particle contamination. What we found, was that in the oil, depending from temperature, there was a fluctuating amount of grease micro-grumes of about 20-50um that tended to clog the iniector.
The solution was to apply process filter bags, insulating and warming them up to a temperature where the grumes formation was reduced to a minimum, facilitating the fluid flow and permitting a good filtration separating other solid particles present in fluid.
