Bronkhorst High-Tech BV the leaders in Mass Flow Meter / Mass Flow Controller technology for gases and liquids, Pressure Controllers and Evaporation Systems.
We offer solid constructed solutions for bioreactor gas and liquid flow control. Benchtop and industrial bioreactors can benefit from Bronkhorst’s reliable, accurate, compact and robust flow instruments. These can also be integrated into your equipment as customized manifold solutions or open frame installations.
The long-lasting relation with major and innovative biotechnology equipment manufacturers has shown that our mass flow controllers are well suited for the job and strengthened our portfolio with modifications specific for this market.
Application of bioreactors, including fermenters, are for production of bioethanol and other biofuels, pharmaceutical products, fine chemical products, food and beverages and tissue growth. As dosing of Air, N2, O2 and CO2 into microbial and cell cultivation is critical, the keyword is reliability.
Bronkhorst instruments for bioreactors
Bacteria are single-celled micro-organisms with their size in the micron range. Already for ages, bacteria have been used in the preparation of fermented foods and drinks, such as yoghurt and wine.
What do yoghurt and beer have in common? Utilising metabolism of tiny micro-organisms as a fermenter is an essential part of processes such as brewing and fermentation.
The British beer brewery, Ossett Brewery, uses Bronkhorst flow meters in their fermenter process to supply oxygen in a controlled way.
Bronkhorst flow controllers are used for CO2 measurement and control for algue during cultivation at the Thomas More University of Applied Sciences.
In the beer brewing process, air is supplied to the fermentation step. To ensure the shelf life and the taste of the beer, the oxygen content in the fermentor has to be monitored continuously and accurately during the process.
Bronkhorst offers mass flow meters and controllers up to 5000 ln/min Air equivalent. In aeration applications up to 50% of the MASS-STREAM instruments are sold with multi-functional display which offers a wide range of additional options.
