INCOSEP - BioPro Biodiesel Processor Accelerator
Springboard Biodiesel manufactures and sells The INCOSEP™ biodiesel processing accelerator.
The INCOSEP™ is a device that can be installed inside your BioPro™ 190 or your BioPro™ 380, that enables users to more than double their biodiesel processing speed, for less than half the price of a BioPro™.
This proprietary and patent-pending instrument induces rapid settling of bulk glycerin from raw biodiesel AND seperates wash water from biodiesel at a remarkably increased rate, while also helping to prevent emulsions (see video below).
Any BioPro™ 190 or 380 sold after January 1, 2007 can be upgraded with an INCOSEP.
The INCOSEP™ significantly reduces processing time in BioPro™ biodiesel processors. Standard BioPro™ processors are rated to repeatably produce ASTM-fuel every 48 hours. Half of this time (24 hours) is dedicated to esterification and transesterification reactions, as well as glycerin settling. The other half of this time is dedicated to washing (1 spray wash and 2 turbulent washes) as well as evaporative drying.
The INCOSEP™ accelerates the esterification, transesterification and glycerin settling process from 24 to 8 hours. Additionally, it reduces the washing and drying processes to 12 hours, rather than 24. Because of the INCOSEP's™ effectiveness in preventing emulsions, all three washes are now turbulent washes, in which the fuel is stirred into a homogenous mixture with the wash water before the water is quickly settled out and removed, thus exceeding the thoroughness of the already stringent water wash.
