Algae for biofuels, algae for animal feed, algae for nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and biomaterials. There are so many uses for algae but like any crop, growing algae can be challenging. Each algae strain has its own unique optimal growing conditions. How do you find these conditions?
Whether you’re growing spirulina, dunaliella, chlorella, haematococcus pluvialis, or any other strain, Algae Lab Systems will get you up and running in no time with a state of the art, scalable, and modular Monitoring and Control system.
The AlgaeConnect™ Monitoring and Control system is designed to help you optimize algae yield whether you are in R&D or have hundreds of PBRs running concurrently. It monitors and controls all important growing conditions with integrated Sensors and control modules. The software is pre-configured with sophisticated control algorithms that can be implemented from simple drop down menus.
With the HubBox server and ALS-SPARC2 controller combination, the system is wireless, waterproof, heat resistant, and perfectly suited for large scale outdoor pond applications. The software can be accessed over Wi-Fi from a tablet, so you can get real-time information on each pond as you move around the farm.
When you expand with more ponds or PBRs, you can expand the software for another ALS-SPARC2 controller in less than a minute with full control automation and monitoring from a choice of over 30 sensors. You can also integrate AlgaeConnect data into your own SCADA package with UDP and database communications.
Sensors include dissolved oxygen, PAR light, temperature, pH, nitrate, ammonium, algae density solar and artificial light, water level and flow, and others. Light control, pH control, CO2 control, temperature control, nutrient delivery, are all easily programmed.
Choose the products that fit your needs AND your budget. Buy only what you want to start with, you can always expand later, and it couldn’t be any easier.
