I just noticed this section was empty, I will add what I can...

  • WVO ~ Waste vegetable oil
  • UVO ~ Used vegetable oil
  • VO ~ New vegetable oil
  • UMO ~ Used motor oil
  • RUG ~ Regular unleaded gasoline
  • methoxide ~ Mixture of methanol and caustic, typically either NaOH or KOH is the caustic used for making biodiesel.
  • MeOH ~ Methanol, the alcohol typically used as the solvent for making biodiesel
  • KOH ~ The caustic Potassium hydroxide
  • NaOH ~ The caustic sodium hydroxide
  • AE ~ Acid esterification, used to reduce FFA's is high titrating WVO
  • HTAE ~ High temperature acid esterification
  • FPHE ~ Flat plate heat exchanger
  • TEFC ~ Totally enclosed fan cooled electric motor, desirable for biodiesel processing equipment

Well thats all I could think of...
Cheers,
Jon

The glossary was moved to the archive site here. I posted a message about it in the "This Site" forum in November but it still hasn't been addressed. I waited about a month for something to happen, then I reported my post to get the attention of the moderators. That didn't seem to work either.

I think this thing is broken.->
