Full-size CIP/SIP Fermenters 150L-300L-500L

SYSBIOTECH Pilot-scale Fermenters are a reliable solution for working with microbiological cultures for scientific research or small biotech production facilities, as well as for scaling-up technology.

Standard «ready to use» solutions include all components needed for convenient operation with microbial culture applications. After connecting the Fermenter you can start using it right away without having to buy any accessories.

SYSBIOTECH Pilot scale Fermenters have fully aseptic design and can be validated easily. C-BIO2 control system, universal for any volume of Fermenter greatly simplifies scale-up process and allows for easy transfer of fermentation data.

If needed, SYSBIOTECH Fermenters can be upgraded to fulfill your specific application requirements.

For your convenience, all the necessary piping is installed on open stainless steel mobile frame. This helps to save space in your facility and simplifies access for maintenance of the Fermenter.

All wetted surfaces are made of AISI 316L stainless steel with surface finish of 0.8 μm, to allow for effective CIP (cleaning-in-place).

Automated and user-configurable CIP and SIP (cleaning-in-place and sterilization-in-place) processing are standard included. A user-friendly program tool allows you to create your CIP and/or SIP sequence by defining its steps and set parameters. By combining sequences you can build a fully automated procedure for your entire application, maximizing day to day process consistency and ensuring best results.
