Heat Transfer Issues in Mechanically Agitated Fermenters

Heat Transfer Issues in Mechanically Agitated Fermenters? Aerobic fermentation generates a significant amount of heat, which must be removed to maintain a constant temperature. The main heat sources are metabolic heat generation, agitator power input, and compressor power input. Removing the heat is made more challenging by the fact that fermenters are operated at mild…
