Fermentation works on the fact that micro-organisms change the chemical composition of bio-degradable materials into chemical substances that can be used for various purposes. In a typical fermenter, the micro-organisms are deployed and supplied with necessary food and nutrients that helps them to multiply and boost the fermentation process.
Fermenters are designed to meet all process requirements for culture of microorganisms to achieve maximum growth and productivity. Maximum productivity, product concentration, and the quality are dependent on bulk mixing and oxygen mass transfer, which in turn is governed by process operation, the impeller type, and fluid properties.
From a mixing standpoint, gas dispersion, solid suspension, heat transfer, and blending are the key factors that govern productivity. In fermentation, limited oxygen supply could affect the process; therefore, maximum oxygen dispersion is required to create the desired mass transfer. The type and nature of micro-organism culture is also one of the important factors in deciding the speed and type of impeller. High shear-rate can kill micro-organism in some processes and may multiply in some other.
ACME leads the agitator manufacturing market with a wide range of impellers and their combinations to optimize the fermentation process.
In fermenter, agitators are designed to promote good gas dispersion and bubble break up.
