Sugar beet syrup
Bioethanol refers to ethanol made exclusively from biomass or biodegradable portions of waste, for use as biofuel. Bioethanol can be made from any raw material that contains sugar or starch. It is often obtained from sugar beet syrup. The sugar beet syrup is made in a sugar factory.
A major ethanol manufacturer required a pump for unloading the tankers which delivered sugar beet syrup. The pump had to be able to convey the highly viscous syrup, be self-priming and pressure resistant up to 8 bar.
The ethanol manufacturer chose a Börger Rotary Lobe Pump.
