Schroeder Biofuels sells its Cold Clear filtration system-meant to lower the biodiesel cold soak number-through a network of distributors of which Houston's Dexter Biodiesel Solutions is the largest. "I have eight to 10 units already that I've sold and are operating in the field," said Nathan DeMartino of DBS. "You can't go to any other distributors or even Schroeder for a demo unit."

The Cold Clear Demo system is a 5 gallon-per-minute unit. This unit will be able to process 15,000 or more gallons of biodiesel before the elements need to be changed. It is recommended that this unit be placed at the end of the biodiesel process in a "slip" stream for best results during the trial.

The average cost per gallons is 2.5 - 3 cents. "That's around $450," DeMartino said. "And if the customer decides they like the equipment and wants to move forward I will credit that back to them."

"The deposit is around $3,200, which is the cost of the one of the system housings," DeMartino told Biodiesel Magazine. "That's fully refundable, and the cartridges will treat about 15,000 gallons." Essentially, customers can test the Cold Clear system for the low price of the cartridges without committing to the purchase of the more expensive system housings.

"This is a great opportunity for biodiesel producers that are interested in the Cold Clear unit and want to see how it performs on their specific fuel," DBS said.
