Solaris S-I Series – Customisable Pilot and Industrial Scale Fermenters & Bioreactors

S-I SERIES Fermenters/Bioreactors have been created with the intention to face all the problems related to scaling-up, from the laboratory to production stage, with maximum ease.

  • Customisable culture vessels from 5 to 30m3
  • Instrumentation for control and measurement of pH, dO2, CO2, RPM, gas mixing, temperature, anti-foam, feeds, total cell density and viable cell density measurement, weight, redox, conductivity, Level, etc.
  • SCADA Control System SBC-16
  • Software management data – trends
  • Designed for microbial and cell fermentation, for batch, fed-batch and continuous processes
  • Complete range of accessories
  • Brushless motor for agitation system

The S and I series consist of highly automated pilot-industrial fermenters and bioreactors, available from 5 up to 30,000 litres and more (S series 5 – 200 L; I series 300 – 30,000 L). These fermentation units are completely customisable, tailor-made starting from the clients’ specific requests.

SIP and CIP Customisable Pilot and Industrial Scale Fermenters/ Bioreactors

The Solaris S-I can be used for; Pilot scale process development, Scale up and scale-down studies and production.

Features & Benefits
