Hydro-Thermal Corporation (HTC) will have two speaking opportunities at the 2019 Fuel Ethanol Workshop and Expo (FEW), June 10-12 in Indianapolis. Two members of our Ethanol team, Bob Fesser and Jim Fraser, will be speaking about the importance of beer column and corn oil optimization.
Senior Sales Team Manager Jim Fraser will be presenting, "New Solutions at the Beer Column to Capture Increased Revenue Opportunities," which takes a deep dive into improving beer column processing results while maintaining an optimized facility. Focusing on increased revenue opportunities is key for any facility, and it can be efficiently maintained through effective mash temperature control with Hydro-Thermal solutions.
Starting in February 2018, Hydro-Thermal entered into a business partnership with a U.S.-based ethanol producer revolving around testing new equipment to improve the ethanol production process.
Currently there are three HTC installations in the producer's Midwest plant, one of which includes a beer column heater that incorporates our Solaris system, strategically installed after the beer mash exchanger (but before the beer column) to maximize heater benefits.
This installation in their plant has helped address processing issues while providing them with a total annual increase in revenue by over $6 million. In addition, the producer now possesses the flexibility to control the gallons of ethanol being produced based on market conditions.
"New Solutions at the Beer Column to Capture Increased Revenue Opportunities" will be presented at the Ethanol Plant construction and Project Summit on Monday, June 10, from 3:30 - 4:00 pm in Room 105.
Bob Fesser, an Ethanol, Starch & Sweeteners Industry Sales Manager, will be presenting, "Good for Today, Great for Tomorrow: Plant Optimization for Higher Yields and Greater Outputs with Industry Margin Stability." This presentation demonstrates the importance of adding equipment that will show yield and process improvements today but will see even greater benefits when ethanol margins increase.
Through the increase of corn oil production, entire facility savings and benefits can be reaped, specifically by using a non-shear heating system to help generate additional revenue for dry grind ethanol facilities. This system uses added temperature as an emulsifier to help reduce or eliminate emulsion breaker chemicals while maintaining - or even increasing - production.
"Good for Today, Great for Tomorrow: Plant Optimization for Higher Yields and Greater Outputs with Industry Margin Stability" will be presented in Room 122 at FEW on Tuesday, June 11, from 2:30 - 3:30 pm in conjunction with Track 3: Coproducts and Product Diversification.
As a company, being selected for two seperate speaking opportunities is a testament to Hydro-Thermal's dedication and constant commitment to innovation. Hydro-Thermal feels that educating others on new technologies is important in helping our customers achieve their processing objectives and improve their production processes.
