Apache Atmospheric Tanks Support Growing Biofuel Industry for Sanimax

Beaver Dam, Wisconsin (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Sanimax, a leading rendering and renewing process company, partnered with Apache Stainless Equipment Corp. to provide stainless steel tanks to support growing production of B100 Biodiesel fuel. The Sanimax facility in DeForest, Wisconsin is dedicated to the processing of 100% renewable Biodiesel fuel. Apache supported their need for increased capacity by supplying one atmospheric stainless tank and three pressure vessels within the past month.

According to IFP Energies, a public sector research and education center for energy, transport and the environment, Americans are taking an interest in alternative fuels. The center’s 2012 report states that USA has been the world’s leading producer and consumer of biofuels since 2007. Sanimax responds to that growth by increasing production capacity.

The most recent tank supplied by Apache was used for fuel storage. The tank was constructed from stainless steel with exterior insulation and aluminum cladding. The tank increased storage capacity for Sanimax by 30,000 gallons. The 132” diameter, 45 ft. high and 19,000 lb. atmospheric tank was API 650 rated. Apache provided in-house insulation and aluminum cladding of the tank and was shipped via Apache truck.

Apache serves the biofuel industry with many types of specialized tanks, including: distillation columns, evaporators, ASME vessels, API-650 Vessels, clad vessels, custom mix tanks and storage tanks. The Apache facility in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin is fully equipped with machines and processes for shearing, forming, welding, rolling and in-house head making. The company also provides finishing capabilities, including automated mechanical polishing, electro-polishing and passivation. Another facility in Plover, Wisconsin produces carbon steel tanks and equipment.

Founded in 1975, Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation consists of five groups: Stainless Steel Tanks, Portable Vessels, Contract Manufacturing, Carbon Steel Products and Mepaco. The Mepaco group manufactures food-processing equipment. Apache is an employee-owned company and a subsidiary of Dexter Apache Holdings, Inc.
