Product range and system architecture
SCHOTT: Supplier of coordinated systemsSCHOTT ensures that the PBR operator can quickly and easily reach their photobioreactor.
We not only consider ourselves a glass tube distributor, but also a system provider, that can deliver all compatible components linked to glass tubes.
The advantages of such coordinated systems are evident, as an integrated system can easily and simply be built and put straight into operation. During production it is less prone to disruptions such as bio fouling in a glass PBR, due to all components being perfectly compatible with each other. This helps us to ensure that your PBR will become a stable and reliable production environment. Over time this will result in significantly higher productivity within your algae cultivation.
Duran® Glass Tubing
Glass tubes of different lengths, diameters and wall thickness: with the lowest length tolerance, best possible processing of tube ends and particularly thin walls. For extremely break-proof glass PBRs, for unrivalled total cost of ownership and for more algae income.
Duran® U- and J-Bends
U- and J-Bends of different lengths, diameters and wall thickness: with length tolerance and high-grade processing of the tube ends like our glass tubes and with dimensions perfectly compatible with the SCHOTT components. For simultaneously cost efficient as well as high-grade connecting of the PBR levels, for a reduced risk of bio fouling and for a perfectly compatible complete system.
Manifolds with different diameters and number of arms: with length tolerance and high-grade processing of the tube ends like our glass tubes and with dimensions perfectly compatible with the SCHOTT components and with closed ends or flanges at the ends. For the simultaneously cost efficient as well as high-grade connecting of fence systems, for bio secure and food safe production through a full glass solution and for a perfectly compatible complete system.
Tube couplings of different diameters and lengths: precisely tailored for the SCHOTT tubes, high pressure resistant and with a special assembly tool kit. For a lifespan of at least 10 years, for fast and easy installation of the reactor and for easy dismantling and reusability of the couplings.
SCHOTT offers a wide range of high quality glass products and couplings for Tubular Glass Photobioreactors. The entire PBRs can be set up as helix or fence systems. Although a horizontal orientation of tubes is more common, they can also be set up vertically.
