Liqoflux pre-concentration for high volume algae cultures

December 7, 2015

Liqoflux

Liqoflux pre-concentration system at Belgium’s TomAlgae, a company which has developed its own microalgal “cultivar” and manufactures a freeze dried product exceptionally rich in omega-3 fatty acids both (EPA and DHA), proteins and vitamins for feed and enrichment source in hatcheries for shrimp.

Algae producers moving from pilot to commercial applications require quick adaptation to algae harvesting capacity of hundreds and even thousands of cubic meters per day. To respond to these client’s growing algae culture volumes, Liqoflux has extended their product range with high capacity Capillary Algae Pre-concentration and Water/media Recycling solutions. Liqoflux now delivers containerized systems with 14, 28 or 56 m3/h capillary filters to process these larger volumes of algae cultures.

In harvesting high volumes of algae cultures the challenge is to process in a limited timeframe and, at the same time, optimize the algae harvesting costs. To optimize the algae harvesting costs Liqoflux advises for a 2-step system:

  1. Start with the Liqoflux Algae Pre-Concentration System to separate the “easy” water and pre-concentrate the algae culture with a factor 10-20.
  2. Select the right separation technology to separate the ‘difficult’ water and produce a high dry solid algae paste.

This Liqoflux Algae Pre-concentration system separates the biomass in a concentrate from the clean water, ready for recycling. The solution incorporates the Liqocap® capillary filters which are specially developed and suited for algae pre-concentration and water/media recycling. The Liqocap® filters are designed with algae-specific requirements including stable flux, minimal fouling and ability to keep the algae intact.
