Elastomer Concerns for Bioreactors

Fermenters and bioreactors require very low outgassing from wetted materials, in order to ensure that resulting products and free from unwanted contaminants.  Many elastomers can meet the requirements set out by the ASME BPE-2016 guidelines – but which ones are right for your bioprocess control? Choosing an Alicat BIO Series Mass Flow Controller will ensure that your bioreactor receives the precise amount of gas your system needs – with no unwanted contamination.

Optimizing Bioreactor Production

Bioreactors are used for producing biologics, biosimilars, fertilizers and pesticides, brewing beer, refining ethanol, and treating wastewater. Make existing systems ready for Pharma 4.0 by replacing rotameters with bioreactor mass flow controllers.

High Flow Control for Gasification

Alicat Scientific Mass Flow Controllers can be used in multiple areas of the gasification process: combustion, clean-up bioreactors, safety, & quality control. Get more precise syngas production, redundancy between units and extremely fast control. Alicat’s MCR controllers with near-frictionless Rolamite proportional control valves- rapidly & precisely control flow rates up to 5000 SLPM.

Reduced Costs with 0.1% of Full Scale Accuracy

There is an increasing focus on reducing the cost of producing biologics, biosimilars, mABs and other modern medicines. Whether using stainless steel tank or single use bioreactors, you can reduce your cost per run by replacing rotameters. Alicat’s accuracy – as low as .1% of full scale and repeatability of +/- .02% of full scale readings – makes this possible. Improve your bioprocess control and fermenter production.

Mass Flow Considerations for Wastewater Treatment

Improvements of water quality and efficiency of treatment can be improved with the latest bioprocess controls and bioreactors.  Pressure control can also play a role in helping obtain maximum efficiency. Whether using corrosion resistant mass flow controllers or high accuracy smart pressure controllers, Alicat has a solution to improve your wastewater bioreactor controls.
