LEWA pumps are used in a wide variety of processes for the production of biodiesel and other biofuels.
Depending on the particular application, different pumps that optimally meet the respective requirements are used:
Conventional process for biodiesel production: Esterification of vegetable oils with methanol.
Low pressure 1st generation
Alternative process for synthetic fuel production:
Gasification of carbon-containing raw materials for the production of synthetic gas (CO+H2), which is subsequently converted into a long-chained fuel using Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. In the last process step (hydrocracking), the desired BTL fuel (synfuel) is generated at temperatures < 200°C and a process pressure up to 90 bar.

Crude oil must be cleaned, separated, and converted (refined) until the final products suitable for sale are made (e.g., gas, diesel, heating oil, lubricants, propane, butane). LEWA supports you with pumps and metering systems, which are used in the refining process during chemical metering. Application with our products are distillation plants, coker, cracker, or visbreaker, for example. Ask our experts for more information!More Details
