SMITH METER SKIDS AVAILABLE DIRECT

FROM FMC TECHNOLOGIES


Smith Meter equipment, from FMC Technologies, has long
been the standard for loading and blending ethanol or
biodiesel and other biofuels. Now terminal owners and
operators can have precision load rack skids direct from
FMC Technologies. The same engineering professionals
who design the world-renowned Smith Meter measuring
equipment have designed biofuels blending skids to precise
global specications.
Smith Meter Integrated
Biofuels Blending Skids
The Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) demanding
renewable fuel standards (i.e., RFS2) require stringent uid
handling and measurement accuracy the kind of accuracy
Smith Meter equipment is known for. Your terminal operation
demands properly designed and tted skid-mounted equipment
to maximize your return-on-investment.
We put you rst.
And keep you ahead.

for Ethanol or Biodiesel Blending
PROVEN, RELIABLE, ACCURATE
FMC Technologies integrated biofuels blending modules meet
the needs of a convenient, turnkey solution complete with
state-of-the-art metering technology and supported with a
comprehensive load rack product portfolio.
We incorporate the latest metering technology for positive
displacement and turbine meters, along with digital ow
control valves to provide optimum measurement accuracy.
Our skids integrate into existing blending-capable presets,
such as the Smith Meter AccuLoad III. These blending presets
can quickly be recongured on-site, from straight product
loading to sidestream or ratio blend loading, resulting in
highly accurate biofuel blends.
At FMC Technologies, our core business is custody transfer
measurement and ow control. Our expertise in custody
transfer measurement, combined with our knowledge of
loading rack operating conditions, make us the best
choice for designing and building
biofuels blending systems
for your business. Choose
FMC Technologies to
build your next
biofuels blending
skid, already
designed to meet
your specic needs.

Blending Methods
Typically the term ratio blending is used where the biofuel
stream is mixed with the main product stream downstream
of the main product meter. One electronic controller device
manages all ow streams. (Illustrated is a three stream
metering system). With this blending method, the biofuel
stream is considered part of the custody transfer metering.
The main advantage for Ratio Blending is that all nal
components are individually and accurately measured,
thus enabling correct inventory reconciliation. This method
provides the most accurate nal custody transfer volume
information.
Side stream blending, an alternative to ratio blending, is
where the biofuel meter stream is mixed upstream of the
main product stream delivery meter, which measures the
total of the delivered blend product. (Illustrated is a three
stream metering system). The volumes of each product are
derived by subtracting the secondary component total from
the delivery total. These volumes are then available for
inventory reconciliation. Thus, the accuracy of this method
is dependent on the precision of the product meter at each
individual arm. The biofuel stream must be pumped into the
main product stream at a higher pressure in order to get the
product into the main line. This alternative method aids in
the mixing process as the blended product passes through
a meter that mechanically mixes,or integrates the fuel.
