Abstract

The study of the oxygen transfer rate (O.T.R) in reactors designed for cell cultivation and enzyme reaction is a difficult task. In this work a bio-reactor for acetic acid fermentation purposes is studied by using the static gassing out method for KLa evaluation. Results obtained prove that KLa shows linear dependence versus operation temperature.
