Radial Flow Turbine Element
Bioreactors and Fermenters are culture systems to produce cells or organisms. They are used in various applications, including basic research and development, and the manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals, food and food additives, chemicals, and other products. A broad range of cell types and organisms can be cultivated in bioreactors and Fermenters, including cells (like mammalian cell lines, insect cells, and stem cells), microorganisms (like bacteria, yeasts, and fungi), as well as plant cells and algae. The words “Bioreactor” and “Fermenter” are basically the same thing.
The Rushton disc turbine or Rushton turbine is a radial flow impeller used for many mixing applications and particularly for Gas Dispersion and Fermentation applications in process engineering and was invented by John Henry Rushton. The design of the Rushton
