Has anyone ever tried to use Purigen in a media reactor?
I have been running NPX Bioplastics in my reactor for about a year, but I decided it was time to change the media, and thought I might try using the Purigen I had sitting around. It takes almost no flow to fluidize the Purigen, and I actually had to be really careful not to have it up too high and blow all the media out into the tank, but it's up and running since yesterday afternoon.
I'm going to watch it close and see how it does, and I may go back to fresh biopellets if it doesn't work as well as I want. Or I might add another reactor and run both.
I'd love to hear some opinions.
