  • AISI 316L vessel.
  • Sterilization with steam, electrical heaters or a combination of both.
  • Double jacket (side-bottom) for greater heat transfer efficiency and optimal temperature control.
  • Microbial (Toro sparger, Rushton impellers, baffles) and cell cultures (Sintered sparger, Marine impellers, baffles caps) configurations available.
  • Wide range of measurement and control options, including temperature, pH, dO 2 , dCO 2 , redox, antifoam, level, conductivity, weight, cell density (total cells, viable cells).
  • Modbus digital sensors reduce background noise and guarantee quick response time.
  • Suitable for batch, fed-batch and continuous processes.
