BFEC
Biofuel Energy Corp.

 

By producing 230 million gallons per year of fuel grade ethanol and 720,000 tons of distillers grains, Biofuel Energy Corporation (BFE) is quickly becoming one of the leading ethanol producers in North America. With the continuous support of VFT, BFE is able to easily accomplish their primary goal: to become an emerging leader in the global production of ethanol.
PTE v7.1 SP1 Upgrade: VFT strives to provide our customers with quality and up-to-date services. Updating systems with the most current software package ensures that current operations will continue to run smoothly, and that future operations will be implemented quickly and easily. This quality-improvement measure is just one way we provide our clients with added value and utility. PTE Lakos Blowdown: Keeping CIP system equipment free of unwanted solids is a small, but critical part of the ethanol-making process. One that could mean the difference between an operational and a non-operational plant. VFT is helping PTE run more efficiently by automating the debris removal process, thus ensuring oparational continuity.
  BLE v7.1, SP1 Upgrade: VFT strives to provide our customers with quality and up-to-date services. Updating systems with the most current software package ensures that current operations will continue to run smoothly, and that future operations will be implemented quickly and easily. This quality-improvement measure is just one way we provide our clients with added value and utility. PTE Conveyor: In the ethanol-making process, the continuous movement of materials is critically important. VFT is keeping PTE's operations going forward by integrating new hardware into the existing DCS system.
  BLE TRASAR: Good plants run. Great plants run. The difference between the two? The ability to monitor and operate all operational areas easily and from one centralized location. VFT is affording BLE the ability to control more of their operations by incorporating their 3D TRASAR unit, which controls cooling tower chemical additions, into the existing DCS. VFT helps good plants achieve greatness. BLE Water Treatment Plant: Maintaining a supply of quality water is not only vital in producing high-quality ethanol, but it in remaining environmental compliant, as well. VFT designed, delivered and implemented a full-DCS solution to meet both of these critical needs, which allow this 110 MGPY site to remain in operational, with minimal downtime.

Silver Lake Water Filter Plant

The Silver Lake Water Filter Plant in Mountain City, TN provides their local municipality with 13 million gallons of good, clean water each year. Producing quality water is Silver Lake's business. Making the production of quality water simple and efficient is VFT's business. Phase 2: VFT is mirroring the DCS system newly implemented during Phase 1 at the Silver Lake site, thus bringing the total operational capacity to four clarifiers. Additionally, VFT is adding telemetry technology, allowing monitoring and control capability to devices previously unreachable due to remote locations. Phase 1: VFT outfitted Silver Lake with a Siemens DCS system in this operational expansion phase during which two new clarifiers and all corresponding field devices were added, mirroring the existing setup. VFT was able to provide design and integration services; I/O panels; DCS software and hardware; start-up support; and staff train-up, which allowed operators to navigate the system easily and with confidence.

TERRA Grain Fuels, LLC. Terra Grain Fuels has completed construction of its ethanol plant in the Rural Municipality of Pense No.160, near Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan. The plant is now in the commissioning phase and working towards it’s design capacity of approximately 150 million litres of ethanol annually and 163,800 tonnes of dried distillers grains annually.   In the dehydration process, the molecular sieve removes the remaining water from the ethanol based on different sizes of molecules. The correct timing of the Molecular Sieves are imparative to the production of ethanol. VFT provided Terra Grain Fuels with engineering services to modify the Molecular Sieve timing.
