Designed for reliability, reduced total life cycle costs and process optimisation.
For biofuel manufacturing process transfer and pressure injection applications. Hydra-Cell’s seal-less design means there are no dynamic seals to wear when processing corrosives, abrasive liquids and non-lubricating liquids and liquids with suspended solids. The Hydra-Cell pump can run dry indefinitely if the supply tank should run out and seal or packing maintenance is eliminated.

The Hydra-Cell pumps low shear pumping action is also an advantage when pumping shear sensitive algae solutions.

More flexible processes and lower costs are potential advantages of high-pressure processes for continuous production, compared with batch processes. However, mixes such as rapeseed oil, with KOH and methanol additives are chemically aggressive non-lubricants and are very difficult to pump at the required temperatures and pressures – 60 to 80 bar at temperatures up to 70ºC. Despite these harsh conditions, Hydra-Cell seal-less pumps give a service life > 5 times or more longer than alternative pump technologies, such as screw, gear, and piston pumps.

The design of the Hydra-Cell biofuel pump is exceptionally compact when compared with traditional hydraulically balanced metering pumps – with consequent savings in the costs of acquisition, energy consumption and maintenance - lowering Life Cycle Costs. Less space is needed for installation. The integration of multiple diaphragms in a single head also produces virtually pulse-free flow, reducing or often eliminating any need for pulsation dampers.
