Flow Line Options has supplied Smart Fuels, an alternative-energy company, with process measurement and control solutions for its new biodiesel facility in Fruitland Park, Florida.

The refinery is expected to be operational by 2010 and will produce ASTM-certified biodiesel fuel from recycled, used vegetable oil and fats.

Smart Fuels has installed Flo-Corp Memflo volumetric flowmeters and MFT two-wire flow transmitters to accurately monitor the flow rate through the heaters and calculate the amount of oil going to the processor.

The company has also installed Echosafe ultrasonic-level transmitters to determine the amount of fluid within the tanks and Calflo Switchguard flow and temperature switches for added process protection.

Collectively, Flo-Corp technology is intended to increase efficiency at the refinery, resulting in higher-quality fuels.

The plant will soon produce ASTM-certified biodiesel or B100, as well as a variety of fuel blends, including B2, B5, B10 and B20, for use in any biodiesel engine.

Smart Fuels is aiming to provide its products and services to commercial customers, fleet customers, governments, petroleum blenders and distributors, power generation customers and the general public.
