PBR 1250L
Algae Photobioreactor

PBR 1250L
Algae Photobioreactor

• Ideal for growing live algae at aquaculture hatcheries producing oyster, mussels, geoduck, clam, scallop, shrimp, etc.

• Ideal for production of greenwater and zooplankton feed in marine finfish hatcheries

• Perfect for bridging between lab-scale culture and commercial algae production vessels (inoculum for raceways and ponds)

• Low footprint, large production: Replaces up to 40,000L of traditional batch tanks or 35 upright 400L bags

• Closed tank design with clean-in-place (CIP) system for biosecure algae cultures

• Closed loop and adjustable automation of repetitive tasks allows for more productive and reliable cultures

How it works

Inoculate

Biosecure disconnects make inoculation from starter algae cultures (20L) simple & clean.

Clean

Between batches run the automated chemical CIP cycle to clean & sterilize the PBR. After a few hours the reactor is ready to be re-inoculated.

how it works cycle

Scale Up

The PBR automatically adds water & nutrients as it scales up the culture over 7-10 days.

Harvest

The PBR automatically harvests in continuous or semi-continuous mode for months at a time. At any point the entire batch can be harvested.
