The Best Anaerobic Digestion Solutions

The term Anaerobic simply means without oxygen and digestion is the processes by which microorganisms break down the biodegradable waste material in the absence of oxygen.

Aerobic digestion is the opposite meaning air is introduced to the tank to aid the digestion process. Anaerobic digestion is a fast and efficient process used for industrial purposes to manage waste and to produce fuels suitable for other uses.

The process is a source of renewable energy, biogas is produced and can be used directly as fuel, blended with natural gas and pumped back into the gas network to earn money and stabilise DNO gas network companies who have remote gas supplies. Quality bio-methane and digestate ( waste left on completion of the process) this can be mixed with inert soils to create fertilisers and farm foods.

The yield from a single digester can be significant so uptime is a key concentration.

Benefits of Anaerobic Digestion Heating & Cooling Solutions from Rapid Chiller Rentals.

Typically, a service provider like Rapid Chiller Hire gets involved when a digester water tanks need’s extra cooling, this can be because the chiller installed has failed,  high ambient temperatures are having an adverse effect on the pasteurisation process or because the product itself has led to the microorganisms over working, this can create a large amount of heat and sometimes kill off the process early costing time and money.

The fix is simple we attend with our RCAC fluid chiller unit capable of cooling .

The chiller was connected directly on to the onsite water circuit to enable the process temperature to be reduced gradually to eliminate thermal shock.

A temporary plate heat exchanger and secondary flow pump was used as part of the cooling package to allow the chiller to complete the application required, all can happen without interrupting the plant cycle.


How does Temporary chiller hire work?

How does Temporary chiller hire work for Me? – A temporary chiller hire is delivered in one of three ways


  1. Looking for Additional capacity installed within an existing environment space, for example during a Environment extension.
  2. Because you need to, perhaps outdoor ambient conditions are making it hard to maintain indoor room temperatures or a severe breakdown leave you with no cooling or your process cooling running at reduced capacity.
  3. Planned support project, perhaps you have a short or long-term contract? Or need extra space during peak times of the year, and want to react to sudden changes in the cold chain market.

Anaerobic Digestion Heating Boiler Hire

Rapid Chiller Rentals Limited are experts at providing both planned and reactive hire for Anaerobic Cooling solutions.

Trigeneration heating is the process of heat recovery from jacket water and flue gasses of a biogas fired generator.
The alternative is a gas or oil direct fired hire boiler. No matter what the heat source is, its crucial that on start up of the process, that the material in the silo is heated to the correct temperature in order for the microorganisms to begin breaking down the contents and creating gas.

The AD plant is reliant on stable temperatures to maximise productivity, any breaks can have a detrimental effect, or risk the destruction of the microorganisms rendering the contents useless and forcing a stoppage.
Rapid Chillers are experts in both temporary boiler hire and heat recovery solutions and have a track record of finding the right solution where it exists.

As the world looks to cleaner and more renewable sources of energy AD will most certainly become more prevalent.

Anaerobic Digestion Cooling Chiller Hire

Rapid Chiller Rentals Limited are experts at providing both planned and reactive hire for Anaerobic Cooling solutions.

Temporary chiller Hire has often been a way of reducing the risk of over heating during the process of biogas creation, the fact that the microorganisms produce gas and heat has long been understood and temperatures exceeding the safe levels can not only cause destruction of the microorganisms but risk damage to the plant itself, hot excitable microorganisms have been known to create gas beyond the safe limits of the plant, therefore water and air cooled chillers help reduce the heat by expelling this via the refrigeration cycle.

Keeping the silo jacket at an optimum temperature ensures a controlled release of gas and a more sustainable yield. Heat pumps are also making their way into the higher temperatures now meaning that a chiller can provide both heating and cooling.

Technological advances are moving the industry in that direction but scepticism of heat outputs in low air temperatures mean that hiring is giving clients the chance to trial new technologies without committing to capital purchase.

Anaerobic Digestion Process Flow: All process flows are dependent on the balance of between proteins, carbs and fats.

Anaerobic Digestion - Process stages

Process stages

The four key stages of anaerobic digestion involve hydrolysis, acidogenesis, acetogenesis and methanogenesis.

The overall process can be described by the chemical reaction, where organic material such as glucose is biochemically digested into carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) by the anaerobic microorganisms.

Anaerobic Digestion FAQ's

As much as 40% of food supply ends up being discarded as waste. Contributing to an estimated 31% food loss at the retail and consumer levels. Reusing these food supplies to convert in to usable energy will help the environment and reduce wastage.

From a life cycle perspective, anaerobic digestion performs well in most categories by inducing significant resource savings. To increase environmental sustainability however, it is necessary to control emissions in the biogas production chain.

One of the most obvious environmental benefits of anaerobic digestion is its function in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By capturing methane gas that may have otherwise been lost to the atmosphere, AD operations displace fossil fuel energy use.

Emergency Response Needed

A temporary wet system freezer or chill store

The most common of all our applications is installed following the partial or full loss of cooling in critical stores at food factories and haulage storage facilities.

Imagine your freezer at home breaking down and how quickly the temperature begins to rise.

Having a supplier on hand that can deliver and install a temporary cold or chill store quickly is quite often an essential piece of disaster recovery planning for the food retail industry.
Where stock is put at risk by temperature related failures a robust plan needs to be followed to prevent stock losses and continue business operations for example picking.
Trucks can mount up quickly and staff standing around waiting are not productive and the reputational damages that occur when orders don’t reach their destinations can mean contractual failings and these quite often have significant financial and trust related consequences.

A temporary chiller can be connected to the internal air movers by flexible glycol hoses and filled with specially treated water that cannot freeze, this solution delivers the cooling into the building space and removes the heat, back to the chiller. Where it is vented as waste energy to atmosphere.

A single air handler can deliver 25kW or 50kW of cooling in the right conditions. Our specialist hire team, work out the deerate to be applied to achieve the desired room temperature. Allowing for air handler defrost cycles, and size the chiller according to that and the flow rate required to deliver the correct cooling capacity. A single chiller and air handler can be installed in an hour or two in the right conditions so its vital you act quickly when you realise temperatures are not being met.
