Blending Skid Modules

Blending System Skid

The introduction of biofuels into the mainstream fuels market business has generated the need for a significant investment in the appropriate technology and processes to ensure that the product reaching the end consumer is of the right quality and can be produced repeatedly without the need for additional quality controls.

FMC Technologies blending system modules are based on the experience and quality of the Smith Meter brand. These modules, designed for the European Market, have been designed to fulfill internal and logistical requirements and to comply with all Weights & Measures requirements.

Ratio blending refers to the mixing of the main fuel stream and the bio component stream in the correct ratio, where the main fuel stream is considered a variable flow and the bio component flow must be controlled in the correct ratio. Typically the term ratio blending is used where the bio stream is mixed with the main fuel stream "downstream' of the main fuel meter and managed with one electronic controller device managing all the flow control valves. With this blending method the blending stream is considered part of the custody transfer metering. The main advantage of Ratio Stream Blending is that all final product components are individually and accurately measured, the enabling correct inventory reconciliation providing the most accurate final custody transfer volume information. A typical application is Ethanol blending.
