Glycerine Processes

SIEBTECHNIK TEMA - Bio Diesel Production - GlycerineBio-Diesel Production

Bio-Diesel is produced by transesterification of fats/oils and methanol. This reaction is usually catalysed by a basic catalysis, with glycerine being a by-product.

SIEBTECHNIK TEMA - Glycerine PurificationGlycerine Refinement

The resulting raw glycerine contains water, salts and other residues (MONG). In order to produce glycerine of pharmaceutical quality (purity 99.5 %), various purification steps are carried out. Among other things, the existing solids are separated from the glycerine.

Advantages in the production of pharmaceutical grade glycerine

SIEBTECHNIK TEMA - SHORTBOWL Decanter Centrifuge

Material: SHORTBOWL decanters are used particularly successfully for solid/liquid separation in a suspension hot stream.
Cantilever Design: No bearings or shafts in the hot product area. Product and drive area are separated from each other.
Circulating oil lubrication: The still occurring temperatures can be easily controlled by the circulating oil lubrication and an integrated oil cooler.
