Quick change sparger design reduces the time and effort it takes to replace sparger elements in bioreactors and fermentors. The porous metal element can be purchased with a uniquely designed adapter that allows easy assembly to the mating sparger tip and easy removal for replacement after each batch. In bioreactor and fermentor systems, optimal mass transfer of gases like oxygen or carbon dioxide is perhaps the most difficult task to accomplish. Oxygen, in particular, is poorly soluble in water – and even less in cell culture and fermentation broths. It takes more than agitation to provide adequate mass transfer. Company’s spargers introduce gases into liquids through millions of tiny pores, creating smaller and more numerous bubbles. The result is vastly greater mass transfer rates, which reduces the volume of process gas required.
