High Power Ultrasonic Mixing for Biodiesel Production
FYCG offers ultrasonic mixing reactors for the production of biodiesel at any scale. The ultrasonic mixing improves mass transfer and reaction kinetics leading to faster transesterification and higher yield. It saves excess methanol and catalyst. Ultrasonic mixing reactors are recommended for production capacities of 0.25ton per hour or more. We offer ultrasonic reactors of an individual capacity of up to 10ton/hr . In general you should consider using three to five units in parallel to accommodate variations in production rates.

The Ultrasonic reactors add cavitational shear to the mixing process.
This gives you much smaller methanol droplets resulting in improved methanol and catalyst utilization.
Therefore, less methanol and catalyst are required.
In addition to that, the cavitation influences the reaction kinetics, leading to faster and more complete transesterification.
For small and medium size biodiesel production of up to 6ton/hr , FYCG offers you the YPS55B, YPS57B, YPS59B and YPS61B. These four ultrasonic mixing equipment are very compact, easy to integrate or retro-fit.
They are built for heavy duty operation in harsh environments. Below you will find recommended reactor setups for a range of production rates.
