เกจวัดแรงดัน in Hualien County on the east coast of Taiwan is the primary biogas plant in the country to make use of livestock manure as its feedstock, utilizing a digester mixing system made by Landia.
The plant features six of Landia’s externally mounted GasMix systems, which improve biogas yields. The 18.5 kw models are serving to generate what’s going to quantity to roughly 876,000 kWh of electrical energy each year for the Taipower grid (equivalent to the electrical energy capability of 250 households) from 300 tonnes of livestock manure wastewater daily within the breeding area of Sanmin, Yuli Town where eight livestock farms are house to virtually 10,000 pigs and close to seven-hundred cows.
Benefitting from the Landia Chopper Pump, the digester mixing system draws thick liquid from the bottom of the 6,000 m3 tank, where solids are chopped to speed up the digestion course of and stop clogging of pipes and nozzles. In the first stage of the mixing course of, the livestock wastewater is injected into the higher half of the digester, while biogas is aspirated from the top of the tank and combined into the liquid. This reduces buoyancy on the floor of the liquid, and the rising gas bubbles proceed to combine after the pumps are switched off.
