ELARA FLAT autoclavable flat photobioreactor

ELARA Flat is the innovative solution for microalgae cultures.
Its flat design with the minimum thickness allows a homogeneous light distribution even at high viscosity, and its asymmetrical shape prevents foam formation.

  • 1.6 L total volume, 2.5:1 H/D ratio.
  • Parts in contact with the culture are made in borosilicate glass and Super duplex SAF 2507, which is highly resistant to salty water.
  • Gentle mix performed through airlift, which prevents damages to cell membrane and ensures an efficient homogenization.
  • Wide range of measurement and control options, including temperature, pH, dO 2 , dCO 2 , redox, antifoam, level, conductivity, weight, cell density (viable cells).
  • Modbus digital sensors reduce background noise and guarantee quick response time.
  • Suitable for batch, fed-batch and continuous processes.
  • Optional integration of up to 4 analog input/output connections, choosing between 0-10 V and 0-20 mA/4-20 mA (e.g. pumps or valves with power supply independent from Solaris electrical cabinet).
  • Different gas mixing strategies with up to 5 TMFC and/or solenoid valves.
  • Light module consisting of n.4 cool white LED with colour temperature of 4000K.
  • LED power 230 W; LED brightness: 27000 lm at 25 °C.
  • Light distribution: 4000 PAR at 10 cm from the lamp surface.
  • Automatic and manual control of light intensity and circadian cycle simulation.
  • The light spectrum is selectable, and the light intensity is dimmable from 0-100% up to 3000 μmol(photon)/m2.
