The BioPro 380 is the big brother of the popular BioPro 190. It is capable of producing a 100 gallon batch of biodiesel every 48 hours. The process is automated and the tanks are constructed of 304 stainless steel, just like the BioPro 190. The tank weldment is mounted on a powdercoated carbon steel stand. All components are high quality, industrial grade.
Before starting the process, the user simply fills the machine with 100 gallons of filtered, dewatered oil. The oil can be any organic oil (tallow, fats, vegetable oil, etc), but in most cases, waste vegetable oil is the most commonly used feedstock to make biodiesel with due to it's wide availability.
After filling the machine with oil, the user fills the machine with a predetermined amount of catalyst and methanol. The catalyst is easily weighed and placed in the machine. The methanol is then added to the machine. The final step is to measure out the proper amount of sulfuric acid. The user then presses "The Big Green Button", waits for the mixing to start and then pours the sulfuric acid into the machine. And then, get this, THE USER WALKS AWAY allowing the machine to do its work. There is absolutely no need to monitor the machine at all. It does the majority of its work all by itself!
