Types of Pumps Used in the Biogas Industry
Rotary pumps operate with a rotor which presses the liquid against the outside wall of the rotor chamber. Rotary pumps are very common in liquid manure technology. They are simple and robust and used mainly for substrates of less than 8% solids content. The quantity conveyed per time unit depends largely on the height of lift or the conveying pressure. The maximum conveying pressure is between 0,8 and 3.5 bar. The quantity that can be conveyed varies from 2 to 6 m3per min. at a power input of 3 – 15 kW.
Positive Displacement Pumps
Pumpscart Pumps offers a range of positive displacement pumps designed to handle the various stages of biogas production efficiently. These pumps play a crucial role in transferring organic feedstock into digesters, ensuring a consistent supply for optimal gas production.
Eccentric Spiral Pump or Rotary-displacement Pumps
This pump has a stainless steel rotor, similar to a cork screw, which turns in an elastic casing. The action of the rotor produces an advancing space in which the substrate is transported. Eccentric spiral pumps can suck from a depth of up to 8.5m and can produce a pressure of up to 24 bar. The are, however, more susceptible to obstructive, alien elements than rotary pumps. Of disadvantage is further the danger of fibrous material wrapping round the spiral.
Rotary Piston Pump
Rotary displacement pumps have two counter-rotating rotary pistons with between two and six lobes in an oval body. The two pistons counter-rotate and counter roll with low axial and radial clearance, touching neither each other nor the body of the pump. Their geometry is such that in every position a seal is maintained between the suction side and the discharge side of the pump. They can pump and suck as well and achieve pressures of up to 10 bar. The potential quantity conveyed ranges from 0.5 to 4 m3/min.
Our centrifugal pumps are tailored to efficiently handle biogas, whether it’s for gas compression, gas transfer, or heat exchange within the anaerobic digestion process. These pumps are designed to maximize process efficiency.
Pump Delivery Lines
Pump delivery lines can be made of steel, PVC (rigid) or PE (rigid or flexible), as well as appropriate flexible pressure tubing made of reinforced plastic or rubber. Solid substrate, e.g. dung, can also be handled via conveyor belt, worm conveyor or sliding-bar system, though none of these could be used for liquid manure. When liquid manure is conducted through an open gutter, small weirs or barrages should be installed at intervals of 20-30 m as a means of breaking up the scum layer.
Pumpscart’s screw pumps excel in transferring biogas, a crucial step in the biogas upgrading process. These pumps ensure that biogas can be effectively compressed, stored, and transported for various applications.
Our diaphragm pumps are ideal for handling feedstock materials. They provide a clean and precise way to transfer organic waste into digesters, maintaining the integrity of the anaerobic digestion process.
Pumpscart offers specialized gas compressors for efficiently compressing biogas, ensuring it’s ready for storage or transportation. We also provide mixing and agitation pumps that are vital in optimizing gas production and preventing crust formation.
