As the UK hosts the UN Conference on Climate Change, Titan Enterprises determines it a fitting time to report on the success of its long-term OEM customer, Green Fuels Limited. 

With decarbonisation, circular economy and sustainability hitting the top of the agenda around the world, Green Fuels advances biofuel technologies and joint ventures to achieve its contribution to the global net zero target.

For over 13 years, Titan’s Oval Gear (OG) flow meters have been an intrinsic component within Green Fuels’ biodiesel plants converting bio waste into sustainable biofuels.  Green Fuels’ award-winning research and pioneering process plants have powered buildings with sustainable fuel from used cooking oil, and most recently developed a process to convert fish oil and sewage sludge to biofuel.

Jason Askey-Wood, Green Fuels’ UK Managing Director, commented: “Accuracy of measurement in our chemical processes is critical and Titan’s range of oval gear flowmeters provide just that. Simple, accurate and chemically resistant, Titan’s OG flow meters, with the addition of the Namur switch, were the ideal solution for precise batch dosing within a potentially hazardous environment.”

Titan’s OG Series flow meters are designed to give reliable, high performance across a wide range of applications. Almost immune from the effects of varying liquid viscosity, density and temperature, the measurement performance of oval gear flowmeters improves as liquid viscosity increases.

Titan offers intrinsically safe options for its Oval Gear measurement devices to ensure safe operation in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as those encountered in the chemical, biofuel and petrochemical industry. As well as being constructed from durable materials including Stainless Steel, Hastelloy and PEEK, a fully certified NAMUR Proximity Switch can be installed into the Oval Gear flow meters. The NAMUR Proximity Switch is an intrinsically safe sensor specially designed for use in hazardous locations, enabling the OG series flow meters to deliver highly accurate flow measurement in explosive atmospheres.

Jeremy Thorne, Titan Enterprises’ Operations Manager said: “Titan is privileged to play a cameo role in the technological advancements that Green Fuels is achieving within the sustainable fuels market. The OG flow measurement devices are ideal for use with aggressive chemicals, combining durable materials, robust design and proven technology to ensure they will have a long product life with reliable, accurate operation throughout.”

Jason adds: “It’s an exciting time for Green Fuels with carbon reduction and climate change at the top of the worlds’ agenda. We have seen a shift in our business in developing joint ventures with both advanced economies such as Oman and developing countries, working together to find sustainable fuel solutions for the Transport and Energy sectors as they look to decarbonise and reduce harmful emissions.”

Titan’s company philosophy of ‘pushing the envelope by trying to do things a little different and better’ has resulted in sales of more than 500,000 products in 50 countries worldwide and a repeat purchase percentage of 95 per cent — something that founder Trevor Forster is justly proud of.

Today, Titan supplies innovative flow measurement solutions to a broad range of sectors, including medical, industrial, food and drink, laboratory and pharmaceutical. Its latest innovation — the Atrato flowmeter range — is set to challenge conventional flowmeter thinking the world over. The culmination of eight years’ research and development in collaboration with the Department of Process & Engineering at Cranfield University (UK), it can handle low flows from laminar to turbulent and is largely immune from viscosity effects.

For higher-volume users we can tailor the design of a flowmeter to match your exact application requirements and thus not compromise achievable results with a less-than-ideal sensor. The resultant device would be unique to your application but would still benefit from Titan’s tried-and-tested, modern manufacturing methods to ensure a competitive OEM solution. From an initial concept Titan can offer a complete service from budget costings through prototypes to full production. Often the cost of origination and tooling can be amortised over the life of the product.

All flowmeters produced by Titan are designed and manufactured to ISO9001 and calibrated to an uncertainty of ±0.25 per cent. We produce chemically resistant, high-accuracy digital flowmeters that are not only competitively priced but are engineered to give long-term reliable performance.

However, the value of a flowmeter cannot be judged by price alone. Often in industrial applications the reliability of a product far outweighs the initial purchase price as ‘downtime’ is extremely expensive. At Titan, we endeavour to produce devices that are inherently reliable but are manufactured using the latest and most economical production techniques.
