May 9, 2011
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

Algae-Growth Tanks from SCC These 90% visual light-transmitting tanks from Solar Components Corporation are constructed of a specialized fiberglass material they call Sun-Lite®, to provide optimum conditions for maximum growth and accelerated harvesting, according to the manufacturer.

Round, flat-bottom or conical bottom tanks are available from 12 inches to 20 feet in diameter, and up to 10 feet tall. The tanks are also lightweight: 12-inch x 4-foot tanks holding 23 gallons (89 liters) weigh 8 pounds and tanks holding 725 gallons (2744 liters) weigh just 52 pounds. Easy to transport and set up, the tanks are shatterproof and non-corrosive.

Transparent fiberglass tanks from Solar Components Corporation have been in use for over 30 years for algae growth and aquaculture growth chambers. Styles range from flat bottom, conical bottom and knock down tanks to biofilters and protein skimmers—in standard and custom sizes.
