What is a Bioreactor?
A bioreactor is a tank, fermenter or other containment vessel in which live micro-organisms are combined with nutrients and other chemicals under conditions of highly controlled temperature and pressure. Over time, the micro-organisms, nutrients and chemicals interact to produce an organic product. For example, in beer fermentation, brewer’s yeast is the live micro-organism, grain is the nutrient, hops is the flavoring chemical and after a few weeks of fermenting, beer is the desirable organic product produced.
Bioreactors are used for all aspects of the synthetic food production process including the manufacture of synthetic food meats, seafood, tofu, vegan dairy and all other products manufactured using plant-based protein. Bioreactors are also used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, chemicals and other industrial products.
Portland Kettle Works manufactures high-quality stainless steel bioreactors for all applications. Stainless steel is ideal for bioreactor construction because it is non-corrosive, non-oxidizing, inherently non-sticking, easy to clean and easy to sterilize manually or using CIP.
