Safety accessories

GRS: Gas Release System

The petroleum testing laboratories environment presents a number of risks inherent to the type of sample. The devices for the analysis of samples should ensure minimal risk conditions at work, critical premise in the development of devices for this application in Ortoalresa.

Centrifugation processes for the determination of water and sediment in petroleum, require an organic solvent which, reacting with the sample and caloric intake of the equipment, generates aerosols. In order to remove this gas from the centrifuge and take it to a safe area, Ortoalresa has designed GRS (Gas Release System) as an accessory for all of the Digtor 22 C series centrifuges. This accessory creates inside the centrifuge chamber, on its top when it is locked, low pressure intake or vacuum suction, allowing suction from atmosphere high in aerosols. This atmosphere is piped through the GRS up to its exit, where it can be treated in isolation. The whole circuit is continuously monitored by the equipment, which will lead the right moment to operate the system. Moreover, it is only required the presence of a compressed air supply of 2 bar pressure, in order  to create a 10l/min suction, sufficient to perform the suction of the centrifuge inside chamber volume every 5 min.

GRS main functions are:

• Decreasing gas concentration during operation, and therefore the risk of explosion.

• Eliminating the user’s health risk by inhalation of produced vapors

• Avoiding gas dispersion into laboratory environment.

GRSEasy to use

It only requires a compressed air supply.

It has 4 connections: A compressed air inlet, an air inlet for air removed from the equipment, an atmosphere outlet to a safe area, and the control input from the equipment.

Operation pilot light.

Air inlet pressure regulator.

Inlet pressure gauge.

Operation controlled by core equipment.

Features

• Setting up at a 2 bar pressure, creates a 10 l/min suction.

• 0.2 bar gauge accuracy.

• Max 8 bar inlet pressure.

• Fast inlet and outlet connections.

• Suction capacity: minimum twice total chamber volume in 10 min.

Safety

Hazardous gases input is not required.

Low noise level <40 dB.

Powered only by rotor in motion and lid blocked.

Low power.

Bio-diesel production from seaweeds biomass

In the process of producing biodiesel from algae is imperative that you perform the analysis of the initial biomass.

The evaluation of fat concentration is essential for determining the most appropriate source parameter, and the Bligh and Dyer method is one of the most used for this purpose. In this procedure a key factor is the concentration of water in the seaweeds biomass, which conditions the extraction yield, and therefore the process for treating the biomass.

In the first phase the extraction is performed, incorporating various reagents depending on the properties of the initial material and the homogenization process is performed. Then comes the centrifugation step; this part of the process is essential as a function of the characteristics of the equipment will be affected process efficiency. The centrifuge Digicen 21, with rotorRT 138 and adapters for 50 ml, has been evaluated and validated for this process with excellent results.

The next stage of volatilization and quantification provide us with the optimized results, which serve to define the initial treatment of our biomass.

Ortoalresa, thinking on you processing.

Promoting safety in laboratory processes

Ortoalresa obtained from the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office, the utility patent for its newexclusive gas extraction system, the GRS (Gas Release System).

This new accessory created by Ortoalresa, has been developed to protect users and environment from damaging aerosols produced in some centrifuge processes, either under normal conditions (prevention) or to an incident in the process (minimizing effects), removing these dangerous gases to a safety area.

This is achieved maintain security in different levels:

  • user level: avoiding inhaling damaging gases.
  • laboratory level: avoiding the dispersion of the gases to the environment, preventing chain reactions.
  • optimal working conditions for the rest of the laboratory equipment.

Actually the GRS is as an accessory for the range of petrol/oil centrifuges of Ortoalresa, the Digtor 21 C series, but given the success of this accessory preventing risks situations in the laboratories, soon the rest of our centrifuges will include pre-installation for it.
