Bioethanol is an alcohol produced from corn, sorghum, potatoes, wheat, sugar cane and even biomass such as corn stalks and vegetable waste. When mixed with petrol it increases the number of octanes and improves combustion, reducing contaminant emissions through the exhaust pipe, such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons.
Its main application is biofuel, and it is obtained from the hydrolysis and fermentation of substances that contain Cellulose or Starch, from which Ethanol is obtained.
The aim of Electrical Heat Tracing in this type of plants consists of heat accompaniment in the process pipes, to prevent an increase in the viscosity of the products, prevent phase shifts and guarantee the correct operation of the safety and fire fighting systems in the event of an emergency.
Prevent the increase in viscosity of products (Syrups), phase shifts (Ethanol), or the freezing of water pipes and corrosion.
Based on Electrical Heat Tracing using parallel type heating cables (Self-regulating and/or Constant Power) and direct temperature control, centralised on command and control panels
AKO provides Know How with over 30 years of experience, which has made us the leader in the Electrical Heat Tracing field.
As manufacturers, we provide a Quick Solution, tailor made to the needs of each customer. In the BioEthanol Plant field, we have broad experience thanks to carrying out projects such as: CURTIS, BCyL and LACQ, which are already up and running, with optimum results.
AKO has a consolidated project department, made up of Engineers and Works Supervisors, qualified to lead work teams, particularly in TURN KEY projects, which guarantees successful results.
