Abstract: The specific aspects of airlift reactors emphasizing their function relevance to particular application as bioreactors are presentedThe two main groups of airlift reactors -external-loop and concentric-tube reactors -were investigated on a pilot-plant scale with regard to their performance during the cultivation of unicellular and filamentous microorganisms which produce Baciwcin, Cephalosporin C and Nystatin. Some results were compared to those obtained in conventional stirred tank bioreactors. The compariso…
