Continuous Sterilization System

Applying "Continuous Sterilization System" for culture medium in large-scale fermentation system is a sensible choice. The continuous sterilization system comprises of spray heater, plate heat exchanger and holding tank, etc. The culture medium is transiently heated up under high temperature by spray heater, then enters the holding tank for constant sterilization, and then cool down by passing through a serial of plate heat exchanger. The cold culture medium is now acts as refrigerant, thus the sterilized hot medium is cooled down while the cold medium is preheated.

Advantages of Continuous Sterilization System:

  • The culture medium is transiently heated up under high temperature, so it reduces damage to nutrient component and keeps uniformity of sterilized medium.
  • There is alternation of high temperature and low temperature in the middle area. Thus, the high temperature and low temperature alternate moderately.
  • The relative humidity is lower in the northwest area. The air temperature is at middle & lower level and the area is more sandy.
  • Process Flow
