Renewable Diesel Tallow Feed Filters

Renewable diesel (RD) is an advanced biofuel that is biodegradable and is made from tallow and other natural sources requiring filtration to provide clean feed to the hydrotreater.

RD is a cleaner-burning, drop-in replacement to petroleum diesel fuel and can be used in vehicles and heating systems. Renewable diesel is primarily produced from animal fats, inedible corn oil, and vegetable oils.

About one-third of the fats and oils produced in the United States are animal fats including beef tallow, pork lard, and chicken fat. Animal fats are attractive feedstocks for renewable diesel because their cost is substantially lower than the cost of vegetable oil and animal fat feedstocks can be made into high-quality diesel.

Solid bone meal contaminants, phospholipids, or gums and other contaminants need to be removed to provide clean feedstock for the hydrotreater. This is a highly temperature sensitive process which makes it challenging.

Filter SolutionFilter PurposeFilter Benefit
01Basket Strainers.Removal of large bone meal particulate.Easily remove the large particles from the rendering process.
02High Flow Vessels with Pleated Bag FiltersRemoval of suspended particulates down to 25 micron after settling.Bag filters efficiently and cost effectively remove the next level of particulates.
03Pressure Leaf FiltersRemoval of suspended solid fat and other particulates and contaminants.These cake on the filter and can be removed efficiently.
04High Flow Vessels with Cartridge based FiltersRemoving fine particulates down to 10 micron.High flow, high efficiency polishing filtration solution to ensure clean feedstock for the hydrotreater.
