Designed for the extraction of intra- cellular materials from a biomass pumped in slurry, the PowerMod PEF System features a chemical-free, non-thermal process using less energy than cooking. Applying 1 to 40 kV/cm high voltage pulses for 2 to 20 microseconds, this solid-state system breaks cell membranes and releases intracellular materials to the surrounding solution at about 10% of the cost of a thermal process, claims the firm. Consisting of a high voltage pulse modulator, power supply, and treatment chamber, it is capable of up to 40 kl/hour throughput. With simple, push-button operation, this compact unit is 4 ft. tall and requires low maintenance.
