Title: (DE) PHOTOBIOREAKTOR.
(EN) PHOTOBIOREACTOR
(FR) PHOTOBIOREACTEUR.
Abstract:
(EN) A photobioreactor for the cultivation of photosynthetic microorganisms is disclosed wherein a plurality of baffles are mounted in the photobioreactor tank forming hollow cavities which enable the insertion of light sources through openings in the tank wall. The baffles shield the light sources housed therein from the liquid photosynthetic culture contained in the tank thus facilitating electrical connections with the light sources and the maintenance thereof as well.
(FR) Un photobioréacteur de culture de microorganismes photosynthétiques comprend une pluralité de chicanes montées dans la cuve du photobioréacteur de façon à former des cavités creuses, ce qui permet d'insérer des sources de lumière à travers des ouvertures ménagées dans la paroi de la cuve. Les chicanes protègent les sources de lumière qui y sont logées de la culture photosynthétique liquide contenue dans la cuve, ce qui permet d'établir plus facilement des connexions électriques avec les sources de lumière et de les entretenir.
