Pumps for Industrial Bio Gas Production in India

PumpsCart Pumps offers specially designed pumps that optimize all applications related to Industrial biogas production in India

We are one of the leading dealers and supplier of  Pumps for Industrial Biogas Production in India. The purpose of industrial biogas production in India is the collection of biomethane, usually for fuel. Industrial biogas is produced either; As landfill gas (LFG), which is produced by the breakdown of biodegradable waste inside a landfill due to chemical reactions and microbes. At a time when the viability and safety of energy alternatives is being debated, it is pertinent to look at one of the oldest renewable energy alternatives, Biogas. Biogas is primarily Methane and Carbon dioxide. It may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide moisture and siloxanes. The gases methane, hydrogen and carbon monoxide can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel; it can be used for any heating purpose, such as cooking. It can also be used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat. A family type biogas plant generates biogas from organic substances such as cattle –dung, and other bio-degradable materials such as biomass from farms, gardens, kitchens and night soil wastes etc. The process of biogas generation is called anaerobic digestion (AD).

The following are the benefits of the Biogas technology.

  • It provides clean gaseous fuel for cooking and lighting.
  • Chemical fertilizers can be done away with since the digested slurry obtained from the biogas plants can be used as enriched bio-manure.
  • It is good for the climate and for sanitation problems since toilets can be linked directly with biogas plants.

Types of Bio Gas Production Pumps

Rotary Pumps

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

Positive displacement pumps are normally used for substrates with higher solids content. They pump and suck at the same time. Their potential quantity conveyed is less dependent on the conveying pressure than with rotary pumps. The direction of pumping / sucking can be changed into the opposite direction by changing the sense of rotation.  The pressure stability of these self-priming pumps is better than that of rotary pumps, which means that delivery rate is much less dependent on head.

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. 

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.


Biogas Production. Bio-Mix pump is used to mix and transfer slurry made of macerated bio-waste and digestate liquid into fermentation.

Using biogas for pumps in irrigation is gaining in popularity in India and elsewhere, as the savings in petroleum fuel prices are great. A diesel pump can also be converted into a bio-gas pump used for pumping water.
