Title (EN) SUSPENDED SOLIDS SEPARATION SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE SÉPARATION DE SOLIDES SUSPENDUS
Abstract:
(EN) A method that includes clarifying a thin stillage product in a mechanical processor to produce a fine suspended solids stream and a clarified thin stillage is provided. The method further includes providing the thin stillage product and the clarified thin stillage, separately or in a combined stream, to one or more evaporators to produce one or more reduced suspended solids streams, each stream having a reduced amount of suspended solids and a lower viscosity as compared to process streams having a comparable total solids content but containing a higher amount of suspended solids. The method can further included further processing of one or more of the reduced suspended solids streams to produce a bio-oil product.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé, qui consiste à clarifier un produit de vinasse fine dans un processeur mécanique pour produire un courant de solides suspendus fins et un produit de vinasse fine clarifié. Le procédé consiste en plus à fournir le produit de vinasse fine et le produit de vinasse fine clarifié, séparément ou dans en un courant combiné, à un ou plusieurs évaporateurs afin de produire un ou plusieurs courants de solides suspendus réduits, chaque courant ayant une quantité réduite de solides suspendus et une viscosité inférieure à celle de courants de traitement ayant une teneur en solides totale comparable mais contenant une plus grande quantité de solides suspendus. Le procédé peut de plus consister à effectuer un traitement additionnel d'un ou de plusieurs des courants de solides suspendus réduits afin de produire un produit de bio-huile.
