Biodiesel Production

Biodiesel is a clean-burning alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources. Chromalox circulation heaters, tank heaters, heat trace cable, and control panels are all used in the biodiesel production process. Each step requires critical temperature control that is able to be delivered through electric heat. The final biodiesel product contains no petroleum, is biodegradable and nontoxic, and can be used in conventional diesel engines with little or no modifications.

Ethanol Production

Ethanol is mainly known as an alternative fuel for gasoline-powered vehicles. Production involves the processing of various chemicals, water, and mixtures that must be held at exact temperature, then pumped to processing stations. Chromalox heat trace cable, tank heaters, and controls are used to maintain tank and pipeline temperatures during production. Once completed, the ethanol product can then be shipped for final processing that may include beverages, gasoline, or industrial use.
