The GWP®-III is variable angle automated GWP® equipped with a pneumatic cylinder that allows tilting and adjustment of the reactor to optimize irradiance at the culture’s surface.
The containment structure is made of stainless steel and allows to maintain an average light path of the culture chamber of about 4 cm. It can be easily opened for quick replacement of the plastic culture chamber. The culture chamber is completely closed to prevent external contamination and to allow exhaust gas collection and recycling. The GWP®-III is equipped with sensors (pH, temperature, PAR light, D.O), gas and water flow-meters, pumps and tanks for continuous dilution, but batch cultivation is also possible. The GWP®-III is PLC controlled and a SCADA software is supplied for data storage, alarms and remote control. Distance between panels can be adjusted in order to simulate different full-scale configurations.
