This work describes an instrumentation and data acquisition system designed for a deep bed reactor used to cultivate Trichoderma longibrachiatum on wheat bran. The system allowed on–line measurements of substrate temperature, oxygen concentration within the reactor headspace, relative humidity and temperature of the inlet air, and inlet airflow rates while maintaining aseptic conditions and without disturbing the cultivation process. An error analysis for the instrumentation and data…

TEMPERATURE CONTROL OF A SOLID SUBSTRATE CULTIVATION DEEP-BED REACTOR USING AN INTERNAL HEAT EXCHANGER

The solid substrate cultivation (SSC) process is often limited by rapid increases in temperature as a result of metabolic activity and poor heat transfer properties of the solid substrate. High

New Horizons for the Production of Industrial Enzymes by Solid-State Fermentation

This review tries to shed some light on the basic principles that might help to improve industrial production of enzymes by SSF, mainly in the research subjects of strain improvement, online process
