BPC’s CSTR and high-rate anaerobic bioreactors (UASB / EGSB and IC) have a modular design, built with high-quality materials and robustness in mind. Intended for anaerobic fermentation tests, both for continuous and batch mode operations, the flexible design and user-friendly functionality makes them the ideal experiment platform for simulating full-scale biogas production processes in laboratory- and pilot- scale.
Our modular, robust CSTR and high-rate anaerobic bioreactors are built using high-quality materials in order to meet the demands of biogas labs. Extremely user-friendly, they are the ideal experiment platforms for simulating anaerobic fermentation processes at laboratory scale.
Our bioreactors are:

Choose from three CSTR bioreactor size options (2, 5 and 10 litres) and three different configurations in glass (G) or stainless steel (S) (CSTR-5G, CSTR-5S, CSTR-10S). Our CSTR are built using corrosion-resistant stainless steel specifically selected for the most demanding biogas and biofuel applications.
For high-rate anaerobic digesters, we offer three different reactor configurations (UASB / EGSB-20S, IC-20S). All reactors are built using corrosion-resistant and durable stainless steel for long-time operation.
Each bioreactor has standard connection points, allowing for easy assembly, disassembly and maintenance. Instruments can be operated in standalone or connected in a series depending upon requirements.
All CSTR bioreactors are adapted for feedstocks with either low- or high-solid content and have excellent sealing under anaerobic conditions, using a robust tri-clamp system. The reactors offer a self-discharging port for digested slurry with automatic slurry level control.
Each CSTR, UASB / EGSB and IC bioreactor is fully compatible with the BPC® BioReactor Simulator and BPC® µFlow for simulating biological fermentation processes where gas flow measurement is needed.
The unique wall jacket configuration allows for independent heating or cooling. You precisely control the temperature of the bioreactors by circulating heated or cooled water continually through the wall jacket that covers the entire side of the reactor.
Each CSTR and UASB / EGSB bioreactor has two viewing ports on opposite sides allowing for visual inspection of a process. This lets you monitor a continuous process via key parameters such as gas flow, pH and temperature, and detect foam formation during the AD process.
