The operator of a biogas plant was looking for an effective separator. The plant operator had noticed that the solids content in the fermenter and the secondary fermenter was too high. Therefore, a separator was required to remove the solids from the substrate.
The customer opted for a Börger Bioselect RC 40, as he had used Boerger products with excellent results and had heard about the simple but highly efficient operation of the Bioselect. A Boerger PL 200 Rotary Lobe Pump conveyed the substrate from the fermenter to the Bioselect. A control unit continuously regulates the Bioselect's optimum load. The Bioselect separates the solids from the liquid phase. The solids leave the system, while the liquid phase is fed back into the fermenter in parts.
The customer is highly satisfied with the reliable Boerger Bioselect. The easy handling and loose consistency of the solids were key factors in the decision.
