Hydrasep® has developed the BD line of separators specifically for the Biodiesel industry’s needs. A Hydrasep® BD model can be installed after your reactor.  Or two or more batch reactors can be installed in parallel to one Hydrasep® BD converting a batch operation into a continuous one. Unlike centrifuges, the Hydrasep® BD is not sensitive to fluctuations in glycerin ratio, a common occurrence during batch drainage.

Hydrasep® can also be installed in continuous mode downstream from high shear or cavitation reactors.

Hydrasep® can also be used to separate washwater from Biodiesel reducing carry-over of biodiesel in the washwater and reducing biodiesel drying requirements.

Why tie up a storage tank that can be used for feedstock, intermediate, or final product storage to use as a decanter when you can free it up by adding a Hydrasep® to your process stream?

Unlike centrifuges, the Hydrasep® has no moving parts, no replaceable parts, and is virtually maintenance free.
