Internally illuminated PBR
The Phyco-Pyxis™ brings a fully controlled and automated enclosed photobioreactor concept to the marketplace. The system is available in a range of incremental sizes from 1m3 to 4m3. The reactor is internally illuminated with LED or Gro-Lux lighting that can be tailored to specific photosynthetic requirements; and is mixed by aeration, which significantly reduces mechanical shear. Standard fabrication is in glass reinforced plastic, with a top overflow for harvesting and a bottom outlet for draining, the top of the reactor is removable for maintenance and cleaning purposes.
