Fuel Blending Systems

LIQUID/FUEL BLENDING SYSTEMS USB

GlobeCore’s Liquid/Fuel Blending Systems USB are designed to blend up to five separate liquid components  at rates  ranging from 18 m³  to 200 m³ per hour, particularly low-octane gasoline with high-oxygene additives, to prepare multicomponent motor fuel blends. These can include biodiesel blends, bioethanol and other fuels blends.

Modern hydrodynamic stream fuel blending plants have proven themselves to be 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.

 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.

USB Blending systems are intended for:

  • fuel saving;
  • octane number increasing;
  • cetane number improvement;
  • blended fuels production;
  • blended bio-gasoline (straight-run + bioethanol) production;
  • production of winter diesel fuel and arctic gasolines (decreasing of a haze point and point of congelation);
  • activation of heavy fuel (black) oil (processing and averaging of watered heavy fuel oil);
  • low-viscous ship fuel improvement;
  • production of watered heavy fuel oil emulsions;
  • production of furnace oil;
  • crude oil and oily mixtures processing;
  • petroslimes processing;

The Unit can be applied on: oil tank farms, petroleum refineries, mini-refineries, refuel stations, ships, by bunkering companies, experimental departments and labs of different factories and institutes.

Advantages:

  • economical efficiency increase
  • inventory volume reduction
  • tank battery maintenance decrease
  • production efficiency (profitability) improvement due to optimum employment of components
  • working hours and service personnel decrease;
  • finish products output capacity increase;
  • efficient and optimal machinery working;
  • simplicity of mixing processes (by request, full automation is possible);
  • minimizing of effect of variations in processing of raw materials on technological units of refinery on quality of the finished product gained from mixers;
  • minimizing of the transportation delays during finished product shipment;
  • opportunity to produce finished products with direct loading into gasolene tankers;
  • mixing operations planning improvement;
  • reduction of labour costs.
