Filters for Ethanol and Biodiesel Production
Eaton Bag Filter Housings and Filter Bags are used by ethanol and biodiesel alternative fuel producers worldwide.
Eaton has been providing alternative fuel filtration solutions to ethanol and biodiesel producers for over a decade. Eaton's expertise in these demanding filtration applications is extensive and encompasses such things as knowledge of the special challenges in dealing with incoming feedstocks that have varying degrees of solids loading. We know the challenges producers face in converting inconsistent natural feedstock into high-quality, clean, renewable fuels that meet ASTM standards. Our areas of special expertise include the filtration of incoming raw stock, filtration of by-products such as glycerin, the recovery of caustics and catalysts used in the production process and final product filtration.
Eaton understands that effective ethanol or biodiesel filtration systems must provide for consistent filtration performance, superior finished product quality and be cost efficient. Eaton Bag Filtration Systems can reduce costs and improve operations in many ethanol and biodiesel production applications. A biodiesel application case study illustrates how one production facility reduced costs by replacing an expensive duplex cartridge filtration system with bag filtration.
An Eaton Bag Filter System for alternative fuel filtration applications has two components, a filter bag that removes the particulate material from the process media and a filter housing that contains the filter bag. Eaton Filter Bags are available in a wide range of materials and in micron ratings from 800 all the way down to one-half micron. Eaton Bag Filter Housings are available in single and multi-bag models in both carbon and stainless steel.
