Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO BIOREACTORS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS PORTANT SUR DES BIOREACTEURS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for growing microorganisms, in which the microorganisms are circulated between a main reactor and an illumination compartment. The microorganisms are illuminated at very high intensity in the illumination compartment and are returned to the main compartment thereafter. The illumination compartment is usefully in the form of a tube through which the microorganisms are passed. The illumination compartment is typically at least partially of arcuate or circular cross-section, and can be baffled to enhance flow characteristics.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif destinés à la croissance de microorganismes, dans lesquels les microorganismes circulent entre un réacteur principal et un compartiment éclairé. Dans ce procédé, les microorganismes sont éclairés à l'aide d'une lumière très intense, dans le compartiment éclairé, puis renvoyés vers le compartiment principal. Le compartiment éclairé se présente avantageusement sous forme de tube à travers lesquels les microorganismes passent. Le compartiment éclairé présente généralement une section transversale au moins en partie arquée ou circulaire et peut comprendre des cloisons destinées à améliorer les caractéristiques d'écoulement.
