Pall’s Algae Separation and Concentration Filter (ASCF) Systems

January 15, 2011
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

Pall’s systems utilize membrane microfilters to separate and concentrate algae harvested from the growing environment. According to the company, the ASCF system concentrates 100% of the algae cells and provides a micro-filtered growth medium that can be recycled back into the process, allowing for optimal water and nutrient management.

Pall’s roster of development programs includes algae biomass applications for municipal and industrial wastewater remediation, biomass for biofuels and biochemicals, and for CO2 sequestration as the primary goal of the algae project.

Pall has two different sized field evaluation scale ASCF systems in the Americas. They can be used separately or in combination to demonstrate two stage concentration concepts. The larger system can process a nominal 10,000 GPD of harvest. The smaller system can perform the second stage concentration using the preconcentrated algae slurry from the larger first stage system; or, on its own the smaller system can process a nominal 500 gallons per 8 hour shift of algae harvest. Data generated from these systems can be used for scale up.

Pall’s Algae BioMass Program is in its 6th year and is based out of Cortland, New York, which is also home to their Application Engineering, Systems Design and Fabrication. They also have a satellite Scientific & Laboratory Services site in Houston, TX that supports the program. For Europe their Technical support is based in Madrid, Spain. Pall also has resources in Australia to support projects there and will be developing an Asian support base in Singapore.
