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 biocontrol process? Choosing an Alicat BIO Series Mass Flow Controller will ensure that your bioprocess receives the precise amount of gas your system needs – with no unwanted contamination.
Optimizing Bioreactor Production
Bioreactors are used in a growing number of applications, from producing biologics, biosimilars and environmentally friendly fertilizers and pesticides, to brewing beer, refining ethanol and treating wastewater. The increase in bioprocess control requirements and single use reactors has led to a need for even greater precision and flexibility in instrumentation. Make existing systems ready for Pharma 4.0 by replacing rotameters with precision computer controlled instrumentation.
Alicat Scientific’s broad range of mass flow controllers simplifies and streamlines your bioreactor development lifecycle.
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. With accuracy of +/- (0.8% of reading + 0.2% of full scale range) to high flow rates, precise composition can be ensured and improved flow control achieved.
Reduced Costs with 0.1% of Full Scale Accuracy
With protocols for bioprocessing now firmly established, 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 Whether using stainless steel tank or single use bioreactors, you can reduce your cost per run, by replacing outdated rotameters. Alicat’s astonishing mass flow accuracy – as low as .1% of full scale and unbeatable repeatability of +/- .02% of full scale readings – helps make 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.
