Ladish is uniquely positioned to manufacture valves for renewable fuels facilities. We are here to help build the valves you need for long-term, environmentally sustainable solutions!
A FOCUS ON BIOFUELS
Renewable fuels are an important source of energy due to their sustainability, low contributions to the carbon cycle, and reduced greenhouse gases.
The most common types of biofuels used today are ethanol, biodiesel and renewable diesel. Other examples of advanced biofuels:
Ladish Valves can be found in biorefineries across the country
To name a few...
Handling fluids like vegetable oil comes with a complex set of challenges for optimum valve performance. Corrosion resistance is a major challenge because vegetable oil contains free fatty acids. Additionally, the presence of contaminants in the feedstock can negatively affect the catalyst. Valve selection is of utmost importance when designing a biofuels plant.
Proper selection of materials in valve construction can overcome many challenges presented in bioethanol and/or biodiesel applications. Our engineers are application specialists ready to help with new biofuel projects and biofuel plant conversions and expansions.
