BIODIESEL Blending System 60/3 is designed to blend up to three separate liquid components, at the rate of 15850 gallons per hour, particularly low-octane gasoline with additives, to prepare multicomponent motor fuel blends. These can include biodiesel blends.
The system can be used for oil-refining, food and chemical industry blending applications as well.
It is designed to be operated indoors as well as in sheltered outdoor conditions.
Modern hydrodynamic stream fuel blending plants have proven themselves in industrial operations as an economic, accurate and steady solution for high-quality motor fuel blend production with optimal prime cost. In comparison with existing technology of fuel blending in blending vessels, the economy and increase of production profit margin can result in return on investment of 60 % a year. The project can break even in less than one year.
Liquid blending process occurs in the hydraulic blender. This process involves supplying of all components simultaneously according to the recipe. Finished product is delivered to storage tanks. The advantages of such blending technology are easy and accurate component dosage control, substantial reduction of fuel blending process time, no need of batching tanks for finished product homogenization. In the course of the fuel blending process in the stream mixer the consumption of each component is continuously controlled to provide finished product with steady quality parameters, according to the blending recipe. The fuel blend, obtained from the stream mixer, is homogenic and its component composition is in exact match with the recipe.

Straight 100% biodiesel is almost never used as a motor fuel, instead, it is blended with regular petrol diesel in a certain proportion. Most commonly, blends like B2 to B20 are used. Therefore, biodiesel blending is an essential part of the biodiesel production industry, a growing sector of the energy and fuel industry.
USB system is an ideal solution for biodiesel blending, as well as bioethanol blending applications. The composite fuel produced with this fuel blending system remains stable for long periods of time, due to the highly intensive blending process. The liquids in the blender interact on a molecular level, which results in a stable and homogeneous mix. USB blenders make the process of blending ASTM compliant biodiesel to superior biofuel a lot simpler and a lot more efficient.
· Increase of biodiesel blending and composite fuel blending operations capacity;
· Efficient and optimal usage of equipment;
· Fuel blending process automation;
· Drastic reduction of the impact the input material change has on the finished product;
· Significant reduction of transportation delays for shipments of the finished product;
· Control of the finished product levels in tanks maximizes tank efficiency;
· Easy planning of fuel blending operations;
· Reduction of labor costs.
