Viscosity Solutions for Biofuel Production

Viscosity control in your biofuel production process can be the difference
that ensures peak engine performance.

Viscosity Control in Biofuel Production

When producing bio-diesel from vegetable oils, viscosity must be high enough for sufficient lubrication, but low enough for the product to flow at operational temperature.

Viscosity that is too high can result in clogged systems within a vehicle’s engine, resulting in long-term durability problems, carbon buildup, and negative impacts on engine lubricants.

By employing proper temperature and viscosity control during your bio fuel production process, you can more likely ensure that your finished product will meet quality and performance standards.

Common issues:


When the viscosity of a biofuel oil falls outside of the ideal range, it can spell trouble for an engine.

Some of the following issues can result from biofuel viscosity levels being too high or too low:

  • Clogged systems within a vehicle's engine
  • Long-term engine durability problems
  • Carbon buildup
  • Negative impact on effectiveness of engine lubricants
