How Biogas Plant Pumps Drive the Anaerobic Digestion Process

Watch this video for info about Verderflex HUS Screw-channel pumps which have proven to be excellent pumps for anaerobic digestion.

Read here about two examples: “Recovery of waste food” and “production of biogas”.

Case Study: A prestigious brewery based in Norfolk, who produce fine quality real ales have installed an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility for producing biogas to be inputted into the national gas grid. The anaerobic digestion facility is fed with kerbside-collected food waste, food processing waste, supermarket food waste and brewery waste.

The organic matter is entered into a feed inlet at the start of the process where a rotor chopper breaks down the raw material. Verderflex pumps move the chopped slurry from holding tanks and through a heat exchanger to raise the temperature prior to entering the main AD facility. As the hot organic material enters the main AD facility it is dosed reliably and accurately by a Verderflex Dura pump with an inorganic pH buffer to accelerate and maximize the breakdown of the material. The large mass of organic material is ‘churned’ by Verderflex pumps in a plant room connected through a series of pipes to maximize the surface area and further accelerate the AD process and obtain the greatest yield of heat and biogas. The heat is recycled back into the heat exchanger.
